Giants-Chargers second-half open thread.

The New York Giants, desperately needing a victory to stay in the NFC playoff race, are being blown out by the San Diego Chargers. Sunday's halftime score is 17-0, Chargers.

The Chargers took a 7-0 lead with 8:26 left in the first quarter on a 32-yard pass from Philip Rivers to Keenan Allen. That followed Eli Manning's 19th interception of the season, a ball that bounced off the hands of Rueben Randle and was picked by Donald Butler.

The Giants are now the only team in the NFL with a turnover in every game played this season.

For the third straight game the Giants did not score in the first quarter. That ended with San Diego leading, 7-0.

The Chargers extended the lead to 10-0 with 11:05 left in the half when Nick Novak made a 36-yard field goal. Charles James of the Giants gifted San Diego three points as he was offside when Novak missed from 41 yards, giving him a second chance.

San Diego made it 17-0 with 3:54 left in the half on a 3-yard pass from Rivers to Allen. That capped an 11-play, 69-yard drive.

On the following drive Andre Brown coughed up the first fumble of his career and San Diego took over at the Giants' 39-yard line with 2:35 left in the half.

The Chargers took advantage, increasing their lead to 24-0 on a 6-yard pass from Rivers to Danny Woodhead with 24 seconds left in the half.

Rivers torched the Giants for three touchdowns on 16-of-21 passing in the first half.
