A San Diego Chargers receiver making a play against a Jets cornerback was a pretty rare thing today. Chargers wideouts only caught four balls -- two for Malcom Floyd and one each for Vincent Jackson and Patrick Crayton -- but one of them was a thing of beauty.
Here's Malcom Floyd making some magic in the second quarter in front of cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
The Jets covered so well that that's what Chargers receivers had to do to catch balls today. That was a beauty by Floyd, and the fact that it was the exception highlights how well the Jets defense played today.

It was a surprise Saturday when the San Diego Chargers placed running back Jordan Todman on waivers.
Just as surprising: The rookie was not claimed by another team, a league source said Monday evening, and the 21-year-old has opted to re-join his teammates on the practice squad.
The corresponding move will be announced later in the week.
The Chargers front office considered Todman...

He even does a mock LT celebration at the end:
“I don’t have to say anything about what the refs did — everyone saw how the calls went. […] No way it was called fairly. No way. Not at all. It wasn’t called fairly at all. Maybe I’m being biased, but I’m just judging off what I saw. It wasn’t a fair game called.

Last week, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan made some news while speaking to members of the San Diego media on a conference call. Ryan said that if he had been hired as the San Diego Chargers head coach and been given the talent that Norv Turner has on the roster, he’d have a few rings by now.

Tight end Randy McMichael did not sound impressed with the Jets after San Diego's 27-21 loss.
Around the NFL before Week Seven kicks off:
- Chargers tight end Antonio Gates is active today against the New York Jets after dealing with a foot injury that has caused him to miss three games this season. Gates should immediately go back into your lineup.

TJ Rosenthal: The Jets win if: They can avoid falling behind too far early in the game against a team that historically can put up points. This high powered reputation may be masking the Bolts current potency but the Jets shouldn’t be careless by being inefficient with the ball, in order to test this hypothesis out.
