Chargers - Giants: Week 5 score, highlights

Williams, 23, caught 98 passes for 1,361 yards and 13 touchdowns through 15 games in his final season at Clemson previous year. NY ranks third-to-last in the league with 3.2 yards per carry, and will be without running back Paul Perkins (ribs) today. The Chargers averaged 25.6 points per game a year ago, better than all but eight teams in the National Football League; they are down to 18, worse than all but eight teams.

An 0-5 start is a real possibility, as they've made a hard trip cross-country to play the also winless New York Giants on Sunday. Three plays later, Rivers found running back Melvin Gordon in the end zone for the 10-yard touchdown. He was selected No. 7 overall in the NFL Draft by the Chargers in April.

With ample offensive weapons in the fold, and good wide receiver depth with everyone else healthy (Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman), making sure Mike Williams is 100 percent ready is a luxury the team has been able to afford.

Sterling Shepard and Brandon Marshall both suffered ankle injuries in the second quarter, and Dwayne Harris suffered a broken foot in the third quarter.

They went into halftime with a one-point lead after nabbing a field goal with six seconds to go. After four lead changes in the second half, the Chargers came out on top with a 27-22 victory at MetLife Stadium for their first win of the season. He has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants. Giants RB Orleans Darkwa's 23-yard touchdown is the longest of his career.

The Giants answered that with a 48-yard touchdown pass from Manning to receiver Odell Beckham make it 22-17. Rivers now has 47,198 passing yards for his career.
