Even with three receivers down, the New York Giants were in position to win after Odell Beckham Jr.'s TD catch. The major loss is obviously Odell Beckham Jr. who the Giants have lost for the season.

The team just couldn't hold onto a lead in the fourth quarter of their matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers this past Sunday, and once again, they let a winnable game slip through their fingers. Watt suffered a season-ending injury for the second straight season. He was one of four Giants receivers knocked out of the game, against the Chargers. But good fortune only goes so far for the Giants this year. Roger Lewis and Sterling Shepard (when healthy, ankle) will be the Nos. On Monday, receiver Brandon Marshall - who left that game with an ankle injury - took to social media to announce he plans to have season ending surgery on that ankle.

Marshall finishes the season with 18 receptions for 154 yards and no touchdowns. Levitz said that is not surprising, but insisted that the Giants doctors did nothing wrong in allowing Beckham to play. But had his greatest success in NY, leading the Giants to three division titles in four years in a remarkable late-career surge. Folk was placed on injured reserve with a "minor injury classification".

Joe Girardi: "I screwed up" by not challenging HBP call
While this is only one game in a best-of-three series, getting on the board first can be extremely important in the postseason. With his four-year contract up after this year, the team could simply let Girardi go with thanks for his years of service.


Bills tight end Charles Clay is carted off the fi eld in the fi rst half Sunday against the Bengals in Cincinnati. Kelce left the game at halftime and is in concussion protocol. Coach Sean McDermott said Clay will miss "multiple weeks".

The Giants have promoted a few wide receivers and re-signed some players that have had some time with the team.

It was particularly painful for fans as Beckham had done much to rejuvenate the team's stumbling fortunes early on in the game.
