Chargers end nine-game losing streak, Giants remain winless

This is the story of two underperforming units. His 58 yards also eclipse what the team has averaged per game over the first quarter of the season.

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

The touchdown pass was Rivers' third of the game and came three plays after Kyle Emanuel had a sack, forced fumble and recovery against Eli Manning at the Giants 11-yard line. He has only matched that 137.4 passer rating in one game since.

New York Giants running back Orleans Darkwa scores a rushing touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, in East Rutherford, N.J.

The Giants (0-5) jumped out to a 9-0 first-quarter lead, which included their first points scored on offense in the first quarter since a 22-yard field goal by Robbie Gould in the 2016 regular-season finale against Washington.

Remember when Eli Manning refused to play for the San Diego Chargers? The Giants have a young kicker of their own in Aldrick Rosas, who missed for the first time last week (from 43 yards).

When Manning, who was drafted by the Chargers No. 1 overall, looked back on that trade, he had some not so warming words for Los Angeles. But it's also hard to give Anthony Lynn the advantage, given that the Chargers have yet to win a game under his watch. The Chargers haven't been to the postseason since 2013, and less than a fifth of that roster is still around.

Williams, 23, has already been ruled out for Sunday's game at the New York Giants as he deals with a disc injury in his back.

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. The cornerback has played well this season, but is still looking for his first interception after leading the league in picks previous year.
