New York is going to be without Daniel Jones for the second straight week after it was announced he would still be sidelined with a neck issue. Further, Mike Glennon is in concussion protocol after starting in Week 13 against the Dolphins, and his status is up in the air as well.
If Glennon is out, it will be Jake Fromm starting for Big Blue in Los Angeles.
However, Los Angeles will also be short handed after it was announced that both Mike Williams and Keenan Allen will be in COVID-19 Protocols. It's worth noting Williams has tested negative and may be available Sunday, but that's unclear as of this writing.

Giants vs. Chargers Prediction and Pick
Whether it's Glennon or Fromm, our Matt De Saro is very concerned about the Giants offense against Herbert and the Chargers offense, even with a shortage of receivers.
As he broke down here:
"The Giants offense is averaging only 4.1 yards per play over their last three games, which is the second lowest mark in the NFL over that stretch. The Chargers rank second in that stat, averaging 6.5 yards per play in their last three games.
"The Giants offense is averaging only 4.1 yards per play over their last three games, which is the second lowest mark in the NFL over that stretch. The Chargers rank second in that stat, averaging 6.5 yards per play in their last three games. ... Many of the other stats sway in the Chargers favor as well. They rank sixth in third down conversion percentage, while the Giants rank 26th. They also rank eighth in red zone offense, whereas the Giants rank dead last.
There's no way that I can bet on the Giants in their current state. They have all the makings of a team that has given up."
Pick: Chargers -10
