With wide receivers Sterling Shepard and Brandon Marshall ruled out due ankle injuries they suffered in the first half, Odell Beckham became a bigger target for Manning in the second half. CBS reported that Beckham's right index finger, dislocated the previous week, had been hurting him since pregame.
It would be a time to note that Manning led the Giants to two Super Bowl titles, and that the Chargers got a highly productive quarterback who has never led them to a title. "He was in some pain". It's not exactly clear what was responsible for this outburst of emotion, but he was consoled by his former LSU teammate, punter Brad Wing. "Did we even have any more receivers? I didn't go find it", Ingram said. "If it wasn't for him, I'd be playing in a soccer stadium in Los Angeles".
It was a tough day overall for the Giants.
"It's a tough feeling", Wing said.
On Sunday they found a way to win one, with help from one of the other worst teams in the NFL.
Beckham will receive a second opinion before making a decision on whether to undergo surgery.
Here is a video of the Beckham injury. Although the true nature of the injury remains uncertain, it does appear significant and potentially season-ending.
Beckham covered his face with a towel as he was taken from the field in a cart with four minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Needless to say, things continue to get worse for NY as they try to get back on track under head coach Ben Mcadoo.
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers remained undefeated against 2004 draft class mate Eli Manning with the win, pushing his record to 3-0 against the Ole Miss product. "I think it's justified to be excited and celebrate it just for a little while and then realize we have plenty of play-things to get better at". The guys fought hard, the tight ends stepped up and went out and worked to execute the two-man offense. Eli Manning has thrown for 1,113 yards and six touchdowns while Odell Beckham Jr. has caught 20 passes for 205 yards and two scores.
The Giants' first points resulted from a safety, when Rivers deliberately flipped the ball out of the end zone in the first quarter.
