INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert capitalized on an interception by teammate Drue Tranquill on Sunday in leading his team to a first-half lead over the Las Vegas Raiders.

On a second-and-2 from the Raiders' 23 with 40 seconds remaining in the half, Herbert threw a dart, perfectly placed between two Raiders defenders, to receiver DeAndre Carter for a touchdown.

The Chargers took a 17-3 lead into halftime.

Herbert was 5-of-5 for 139 yards and a touchdown on throws traveling more than 10 yards downfield in the first half.
