Sometimes the game of football, much like life, throws a curveball as a test.
That about sums up the plight of the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Chargers, who are two of four teams in the league still in search of their first win.
They’ll try to get that first victory against each other Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.
The Chargers, who relocated from San Diego, have a brand-new coaching staff led by Anthony Lynn. They hoped the energy the 48-year-old Lynn brought to the team would rejuvenate a club that has lost nine straight regular-season games since a 21-13 victory over the Houston Texans on Nov. 27.
“This is certainly not where we anticipated being, or expected to be, but here’s where we find ourselves,” Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said.
“So, as you can imagine, sitting at 0-4, not everybody’s in the best mood, but it’s a team that — we’re not down and out, in that sense. We’re frustrated and aggravated and tired of losing, but the guys are still into it and fired up about having 12 games left and having this road trip, coming Cheap Hockey Jerseys Custom to New York and playing these Giants.”
The challenge for Lynn, a first-time NFL head coach, is trying to Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys keep his players tuned in to a program that has struggled to produce the results the organization envisioned.
