-- We have to start with Damontre Moore because, well, because at this point the rookie defensive end's playing time is just about the only thing many people seem to be paying attention to. Moore got 15 snaps this week after getting 17 vs. the Washington Redskins a week ago. For the second straight week, the Giants' third-round pick did nothing with them. Moore's name once again does not appear on the defensive stat sheet.
I only noticed the rookie twice. Once when he jumped offside. The second time when he pulled an Osi Umenyiora, barreling up the field toward the quarterback with no regard for the run, allowing the Chargers to run a trap play into the spot he vacated.
-- The Giants for some reason dusted off Louis Murphy Jr. and gave him 13 snaps on offense. Jerrel Jernigan dressed but never played, not even on special teams.

-- San Diego's 37 points was the second-highest total allowed by the Giants this season. The Carolina Panthers scored 38 points in a shutout victory on Sept. 22. It was the fifth time this season Giants gave up more than 30 points in a game.
---- The Giants trailed at halftime, 24-0. It was their largest halftime deficit since Jan. 3, 2010 (the 2009 season finale), when they trailed after two quarters at Minnesota, 31-0.
-- The Giants did not score a point in the first half for the second time this season. On Sept. 22, they trailed Carolina, 17-0, on their way to a 38-0 loss.
-- It was the second time in three games they did not score a first-half touchdown. Two weeks ago, they kicked two field goals and trailed Dallas at the half, 14-6.-- San Diego rushed for 144 yards, the second-highest total by a Giants opponent this season; Carolina ran for 194 yards.
-- The Chargers' time of possession of 36:56 also ranks No. 2 for a Giants opponent in 2013; Dallas owned the ball for 37:10 in the season opener on Sept. 8.
-- The Giants committed three turnovers (two interceptions and a fumble) to increase their NFL-high total to 34. The Chargers scored touchdowns after the first two giveaways, increasing to 116 the number of points opponents have scored off Giants turnovers this season. The Giants are the only team in the league that has committed at least one turnover in every game this season.
-- San Diego's Ryan Mathews rushed for 103 yards on 29 carries. He was the second opposing back to exceed 100 yards against the Giants this season; Carolina's DeAngelo Williams ran for 120 yards on Sept. 22
