Giants' D looks strong early

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

The Giants' front four is much more active than it's been the past three weeks. Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora have used outside speed rushes to get some hits on Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

The problem is that Rivers keeps getting back up. Late in the first quarter, he stood in the pocket and took a big hit while delivering the ball to tight end Antonio Gates.

On offense, I've been impressed with the way Brandon Jacobs is hitting the hole. But the botched field goal was inexcusable. You could see coach Tom Coughlin shouting, "What happened?" over and over again.

Chargers on the board with a short touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson. Looks like San Diego has been able to withstand the Giants' early push. I just can't see Coughlin losing four straight games, but it could happen.
