Despite being without Keenan Allen, Herbert didn't miss a beat through the air. He penciled in his fifth 70.0-plus passing grade of the season (71.9 this afternoon), pending final review. Herbert had an 8.6-yard average depth of target, two big-time throws, zero turnover-worthy plays and a 128.9 passer rating on the afternoon.
Four rushing first downs and two explosive carries made for an efficient ground performance from Austin Ekeler. He averaged 5.8 yards per carry and found the end zone on 12 attempts.
Wide Receiver/Tight End
Mike Williams is on track to finish as the team’s highest-graded pass-catcher. He caught all six of his targets but didn't crack the end zone. Jalen Guyton did hit paydirt off one of his three grabs. He accounted for two explosive pass plays, including the deep bomb from Herbert for a score right before the half. Although tight end Jared Cook is set to finish with a sub-60.0 receiving grade, he did get into the end zone for his fourth touchdown of the season.
Rookie Rashawn Slater allowed one total pressure, and the Chargers' line as a whole stayed mostly clean in the contest. The unit didn't give up a sack, with the Giants mustering just nine pressures all game.
The Chargers' front recorded only eight total pressures, including one sack. Four of those eight pressures were from Joey Bosa, who tallied two hurries, a hit and a sack to complete what should be an 80.0-plus pass-rushing grade.
Chris Harris Jr.’s pending 85.2 coverage grade was highlighted by two forced incompletions and one catch allowed for 24 yards on five targets.
Mike Glennon’s one big-time throw and two turnover-worthy plays behind a below 50% completion percentage should lead to a sub-60.0 passing grade. He did throw for two scores, but the game was out of reach at that point.
Saquon Barkley tallied five rushing first downs but force any missed tackles. Thirty-seven of his 64 rushing yards came after contact. He also had two receiving first downs and a touchdown grab.
Wide Receiver/Tight End
Two receiving first downs on two targets helped Kyle Rudolph finish with a pending 87.2 receiving grade. Darius Slayton dropped two of his three targets, and Kenny Golladay didn't haul in any of his four contested targets.
The Giants’ offensive line had a solid day in pass protection, allowing just four pressures — including only one sack. Will Hernandez and Billy Price both stayed clean on 39 pass-blocking snaps apiece.
Dexter Lawrence collected six total pressures — three hurries, two hits and a sack — en route to a pending 70.0-plus pass-rushing grade.
While James Bradberry did allow two first-down grabs and three catches overall, he forced two incompletions on five targets.
