Chargers at Giants: Who has the edge?

  • Giants WRs Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard both suffer ankle injuries on same drive

Both teams are leaky in coverage: the Chargers allow 28.8 yards per kick return (32nd in NFL), and the Giants allow 18 yards per punt return.

The Chargers (1-4) finally got on the board in the second quarter thanks in part to 20 penalty yards racked up by the Giants defense that included a 15-yard unsportsmanlike call against linebacker B.J. Goodson.

The Giants and Chargers are no strangers to fourth-quarter drama, so why would Sunday be any different when they met? It led to a safety three plays later when Rivers wasn't expecting a snap and the quarterback swept the ball out of the back of the end zone. Tyrell Williams is second on the team with 16 receptions for 238 yards and a touchdown.

The Chargers brought back veteran kicker Nick Novak this week to replace Younghoe Koo, a rookie who started his career by making just one of his first four field-goal attempts. However, the Giants were hit with a delay of game penalty when they tried to line up for the 2-point conversion; after the penalty, Manning's pass to Beckham failed.

Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward vs. Giants receiver Odell Beckham: Ankle and finger injuries have slowed Beckham this year, but even at less than 100 percent, the three-time Pro Bowler is one of the most dynamic talents in the league.

Manning had given the Giants a 22-17 lead early in the fourth quarter with a 48-yard TD pass to a wide-open Beckham. Chargers QB Philip Rivers passed Fran Tarkenton for 10th place on the all-time career passing yards list.

Darkwa's 23-yard rush was also the team's longest of the season.

This is the Giants' worst start since the 2013 season.
