Final score: Chargers 37, Giants 21. [Complete recap to come]
GLENNON RUNS FOR SCORE: Mike Glennon ran for a 7-yard touchdown, the first of his nine-year career, with 1:18 to go. The Giants converted the two-point conversion on a run by Elijhaa Penny, marking the first time since a 23-16 Week 9 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders that the Giants have hit the 20-point mark.
GARBAGE-TIME TD: Mike Glennon hit Saquon Barkley with an 18-yard touchdown pass to get the Giants into double digits with 433 left. The Giants failed on the two-point conversion attempt, and the score is 37-13. The Giants put together a 75-yard, 10-play drive.
PILING IT ON: Justin Herbert hit Jared Cook with a 1-yard scoring pass to make the score 37-7 with 9:28 to play. That was Herbert’s third touchdown pass of the day. The Chargers went 41 yards in 11 plays after a Joey Bosa strip sack of Mike Glennon.
MORE LAC POINTS: After Riley Dixon missed Keion Crossen on a fourth-and-9 fake punt pass from the Giants’ 38-yard line, the Chargers added three more points on a 39-yard Dustin Hopkins field goal. That made the score 30-7 Chargers with 5:05 left in the third quarter.
LEONARD WILLIAMS DECLARED OUT: After injuring his elbow in the second quarter, defensive lineman Leonard Williams is OUT for the remainder of the game.
CHARGERS POURING IT ON: Dustin Hopkins hit a 28-yard field goal to extend the Chargers’ lead to 27-7 with 9:36 left in the third quarter. Los Angeles took the third quarter kickoff and went 67 yards in 10 plays, highlighted by a 36-yard pass from Justin Herbert to Joshua Palmer.

CHARGERS EXTEND LEAD: Los Angeles stretched its lead to 17-7 on a 27-yard Dustin Hopkins field goal with 4:19 left in the first half. The Chargers went 69 yards in 12 plays. The giants appeared to have a stop on fourth-and-1 at their 4-yard line, but a Chargers’ false start penalty allowed them to kick the field goal.
CHARGERS BACK ON TOP: A 12-yard pass from Justin Herbert to Joshua Palmer gave the Chargers a 14-7 lead with 12:13 left in the half. The Chargers went 60 yards in nine plays.
LEONARD WILLIAMS INJURY: The Giants’ star defensive end left the game in the second quarter with an elbow injury. He is questionable to return.
GIANTS TIE THE SCORE: Mike Glennon hit Elijhaa Penny with a 3-yard scoring pass to tie the game at 7-7 with 1:29 left in the first quarter. A 60-yard third-year catch-and-run by tight end Kyle Rudolph, the longest of his career, set up the score. The Giants’ scoring drive covered 75 yards in seven plays, taking 3:15.
CHARGERS TAKE LEAD: Los Angeles took a 7-0 lead with 4:44 left in the first quarter on a 1-yard run by Austin Ekeler. The Chargers went 60 yards in nine plays for the sore.
The 4-8 New York Giants are in California Sunday to face the 7-5 Los Angeles Chargers (4:05 p.m., FOX) and virtually no one is giving the Giants a chance to win.
The Giants, once again without starting quarterback Daniel Jones, are 9-point underdogs. Your Big Blue View contributors don’t believe the Giants will win. National analysts aren’t giving the Giants much of a chance, either.
In addition to Jones, the Giants will once again be without wide receiver Kadarius Toney (oblique) and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson (quad).
