SAN DIEGO -- Inevitability doesn't mitigate heartbreak. So even though this day had been coming for months, the New York Giants were glum in the wake of their 37-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers. The loss, combined with victories by the Eagles and Cardinals elsewhere, officially eliminated the Giants from contention for this year's postseason. There was no improving their mood on this matter.
