Chargers Shock Giants with Late TD

The New York Giants put up a great effort this past Sunday, but ultimately fell just short losing to the San Diego Chargers 21 – 20.  The Chargers drove down the field in the waning minutes of the game and scored the go ahead touchdown with just 21 seconds left to play.  With the loss the Giants have dropped 4 straight games and go into their bye week with a 5-4 record.

The Giants scored twice during the game.  Their first score came on a 6-yard touchdown pass to receiver Steve Smith and their final touchdown was an 8-yard pass to tight end Kevin Boss.

The Giants are now 9th in the league in scoring, averaging 26.5 points per game.  The Giants are currently second in the NFL in total yards gained on offense.
