"Passing yards" is one of the most overrated stats in all of sports. Yards don't equate to wins. It's funny, because turnover differential is WAY more impactful in terms of wins and losses than yards. Points differential--important. Time of possession--important. First-downs, third-down efficiency and touchdown-percentage in the red-zone are the three most important offensive stats, IMO. Rushing yards are more important than passing yards. Like so many other things in life, it's not about quantity--it's about quality.

Too many passing yards on NFL stat-sheets are "garbage-time" yards. Look how many of the Raiders yards came in the 4th quarter when the game was already so far out of reach that the officials should have found some sort of mercy rule to exercise.

The only thing you'll get by going through the air is more travel miles. Yards gained doesn't win the game, scoring points does. Fortunately the chargers are scoring points.
