The one-time first-round pick got paid this offseason and he made the New York Giants pay on Sunday. 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. The Giants held opponents to 17.8 points last season, second-fewest in the league; they are up to 23.8, eighth-most in 2017. The team also went winless in their first five games in 1987 and 1979. He has lost to Philip Rivers twice and Drew Brees once.
WR MISERY: Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Brandon Marshall left the game on the same second-quarter series with sprained left ankles.
Having trailed for 67.7-percent of their time on the field this season, a good start was imperative for the Giants.

Manning's attempt to rally the Giants in the final minute ended when he was intercepted by Tre Boston just inside Los Angeles territory. They eclipsed 100 yards in the first half after their previous high for a game was 91 yards. It also came four plays after Odell Beckham Jr. hurt an ankle and become the fourth Giants receiver knocked out of the game.
Rivers then capped the Chargers' eight-play, 77-yard scoring drive with a 6-yard pass to Gordon to cut the Giants lead to 9-7.
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. Three plays later, Rivers found running back Melvin Gordon in the end zone for the 10-yard touchdown.
