After completing only 8-of-17 pass attempts for 62 yards in the first half, Manning responded down the stretch with touchdown tosses of 29 yards to Lewis and 48 yards to Beckham.
Watt, the three-time Defensive Player of the Year, was injured in the first quarter and the team announced that he sustained a tibial plateau fracture, but didn't provide any details on how long he'll be out. Both Harris and Beckham were placed on the injured reserve.
It capped a miserable day for the Giants after wide receivers Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Dwayne Harris all suffered injuries. In the third quarter, he sobbed on the sideline into a towel. A few plays later Rivers found Gordon again for a 9-yard, game-winning touchdown.
The Chargers made it 22-20 on a 31-yard field goal by Novak before taking the lead for good on the Rivers to Gordon 10-yard strike.
The Giants tried going back to basics during practice last week, simplifying the calls, homing in on the fundamentals, even turning off the music that typically blares at points so that the players could better focus. It's as stiff a gut punch as one can imagine, considering that Beckham was the type of player to make big plays and help mask some other deficiencies.
"I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions", he said. There were just some small things that I just kind of had to go and roll with it. On the Giants following possession, Beckham took a hard hit and went down to the turf, required a cart to be removed from the field.
Once the Chargers cut rookie kicker Younghoe Koo earlier in the week, bringing back veteran Nick Novak in the process, thoughts around the team likely turned to relief. "You look in the mirror. So when we get back in this situation, we have all the confidence in the world to get through it because we just got through it now". "You hate to see it like this, but it's a part of the game". "So we've got to find a way to win".
Why the Eagles won: They scored on their first three possessions, one coming after a 76-yard punt return by Kenjon Barner and took the Cardinals out of their running game. "Everyone is disappointed, I am aware of it", he said when asked if he has had any conversations with Giants ownership as the team's struggles have mounted.
The Giants want Beckham to be a Giant for life - co-owner John Mara has declared this desire, more than once.
Rudolph caught 56 balls for 840 yards past year and 7 touchdowns for the Seminoles. He is eighth in the league in passing yards (1,338) and seventh in completion percentage (67.8), and only Carson Palmer has attempted more passes than his 202. LeVeon Bell ran for 47 yards and Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 157 but neither got to the end zone. Hunter Henry became the sixth opposing tight end to score a touchdown against the Giants' defense this season.
