Turnovers and mistakes ruled the day for the Blue as they were outhustled and out-executed by a Chargers team that simply felt they had more to play for. The Giants were never in this game, folks. They fell behind, 24-0, before the half and could not mount any kind of a significant comeback. It was a hard one to watch.
The Chargers were led by QB Philip Rivers (21/28, 249 yds, 3 TD, 0 INT) and RBs Ryan Matthews (29/103/1) and Danny Woodhead (94 total yards) and rookie WR Keenan Allen (2 TD catches). Matthews is the first back to gain 100 yards on the Giants since Carolina's DeAngelo Williams in Week 3.
New York had some deceiving stats. WR Hakeem Nicks had 135 yards on five receptions. RB Andre Brown gained 81 yards on 16 carries. Not enough, apparently, to save this disappointing performance.
