The Chargers is coming off their fourth loss of the season as they dropped a close 26-24 game to the Eagles last week.
The Bolts offense still haven’t got the rhythm in ball passing and converting it a touchdown. They are ranked last in the league when it comes to the time of possession (25:40) and is fifth with fewest plays on offense (170).
One of the foremost things the Chargers need to keep in mind heading into Sunday’s clash is to deal with tackles. They lead the NFL through four weeks of play with 54 missed tackles.
WR Mike Williams and RB Branden Oliver have been ruled out of the game against the Giants. Also, RB Jatavis Brown, LB Sean McGrath, and WR Tyrell Williams are questionable.
Just like the Chargers, the Giants are also seeking their first win of the season. They lost a close 23-25 game to Buccaneers last week.
The Giants are carrying the second worst rushing attack in the NFL which is averaging 59.2 yards per game and if they haven’t fixed this problem through the week then one more defeat awaits on Sunday.
The Giants’ defense may be in trouble going against the Chargers as their top two defensive ends, Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul missed practice on Thursday because of injuries. Vernon, who made two sacks so far, is dealing with an ankle injury while Pierre-Paul is recovering from shoulder and knee issues. However, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has hinted that at least one will back on Sunday.
Good thing for the Giants is that RB Orleans Darkwa, CB Janoris Jenkins, and WR Brandon Marshall are fit to play against the Chargers after missing last week’s game with injuries.
