Williams set to make National Football League debut vs. Raiders

Rivers hit running back Melvin Gordon for a six-yard screen pass for the score.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning and the Chargers' Philip Rivers will forever be inextricably linked to the blockbuster trade in 2004 that landed Manning in NY and there is no question who's happy that it happened. 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. When Philip Rivers last faced the Giants, he carved up them up for 249 yards and three touchdowns on 21-of-28 passing. He ranks third in school history in receiving touchdowns, fourth in receiving yards and fifth in receptions. The Giants drafted Rivers fourth overall in 2004 with the plan to trade him to the Chargers, who took Manning No. 1.

On their next drive, the Chargers responded with a 12-play, 92-yard scoring drive in which Rivers connected with tight end Hunter Henry on a 25-yard touchdown to make it 17-16 Los Angeles at the end of the third quarter.

After Sunday afternoon, he still hasn't as the Giants dropped to 0-5 this season in a 27-22 loss.
