With possession at their 9-yard line in the final minute of the first half last week, the Chargers were about to go into halftime with a 24-7 lead against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

NEIL CAVUTO, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: All right, thank you, Jon, very, very much.

Let’s just say it could have been a lot worse, stocks clawing to come back today, after being down more than 800 points, equaling yesterday’s big sell-off, and that despite a stronger-than-expected employment report.

We will get to that in a second. But with the drops today, and as bad as it looks today, it could have been a lot worse. The Nasdaq had been about 300 points worse, and that average had fallen close to 10 percent, the technical definition of a correction, in a matter of two days.
