NFL Week 9: Keys for Giants vs. Rams

06 November, 2017, 02:10 | Author: Kristen Ingram
  • 3 toughest games remaining on the Rams schedule

At halftime, Goff already has 209 passing yards and three touchdowns, including a 67-yard touchdown to wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

On 3rd-and-2, Goff hit tight end Tyler Higbee in the middle of the end zone for an eight-yard touchdown.

Though the day began with promise - Orleans Darkwa ran for 24 yards on the first play from scrimmage - the Rams' star defensive tackle, Aaron Donald, soon registered a strip-sack of Eli Manning at the Rams 48-yard line. Manning found receiver Tavarres King on the 5-yard score, but it was all downhill from there.

After the Rams scored touchdowns on their first two possessions of the second half, the outcome had been decided.

The Rams took the lead for good with 14:55 left in the second quarter on Greg Zuerlein's first of two field goals in the quarter, a 27-yarder. They then got a blocked punt from Cory Littleton and took a 41-10 lead on Goff's four-yard touchdown pass to Woods.

Gurley capped the third-quarter scoring with a four-yard touchdown run, after linebacker Cory Littleton blocked his second punt in three games to give L.A. the ball on the NY 18-yard line. Receiver Robert Woods, who entered the game without a touchdown for the Rams, got two touchdowns Sunday and caught four passes for 70 yards.

It seemed as if the Rams were just toying with the Giants when Pharoh Cooper did an unnecessary pirouette before embarking on his 30-yard punt return. With the win after a week off, the Rams improved to 6-2 while continuing to build a strong case when it comes to being one of the top teams to beat in the NFC thanks to the offense continuing to play at a high level, especially when it comes to the stellar play behind Jared Goff and Todd Gurley.

NY pulled a bit closer just after Manning became just the seventh quarterback in National Football League history to throw for over 50,000 yards.

The Giants managed a fourth-quarter touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Manning to tight end Evan Engram to make it 48-17.

Big Blue hasn't scored 30 or more points since a Week 17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015.
