Our early models for Week 6 have Williams projected for 2.6 catches, 33.7 yards, and 0.2 touchdowns.
Roger Lewis and Odell Beckham Jr. were left over as the only healthy Giants receivers. They eclipsed 100 yards in the first half after their previous high for a game was 91 yards.
NOTES: Chargers DE Joey Bosa's first sack of the game was the first allowed by the Giants' offensive line in 122 pass attempts by QB Eli Manning. The Chargers have been a bend-don't-break unit under new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, but all that's done is make for tantalizing close losses.
Late in the first quarter, Darkwa took a hand-off to the right, broke a tackle and ran it in from 23 yards out. "If it wasn't for him, I'd be playing in a soccer stadium", per Newsday's Bob Glauber.
This game was filled with errors and there were a combined 21 penalties. Rivers now has 47,198 passing yards for his career. He certainly does, and 13 years later, clearly couldn't be happier that the New York Giants ended the standoff between him and the Chargers at the top of the 2004 National Football League draft. Why? Each team converted a PAT that hit the upright and bounced the right way.
Remember when Eli Manning refused to play for the San Diego Chargers? Harris was injured on a kick return.
Ben McAdoo won 11 games in his debut campaign with the Giants, but his second season raises some serious questions about his coaching acumen. Brett Jones will start at center for Weston Richburg, who is out with a concussion.
Giants: at Denver next Sunday. Chargers starting LB Korey Toomer did not play despite not being on the injury report all week.
