Rams Rout Giants with 51-17 Victory

The success of the Rams hinges on the performance of Jared Goff

While Goff recorded career highs in yards (311), touchdowns (four), and passer rating (146.8), the former first overall draft choice needed just 14 completions to get there. Running back Todd Gurley has run for at least 100 yards in each of his last two games and in four of his last five games. Higbee also became the ninth opposing tight end to catch a touchdown pass against the Giants this season. And from there, the visitors poured it on.

The Giants would get a 50-yard field goal from Aldrick Rosas, who would later miss a 45-yard attempt just before the half, but otherwise, it was all Rams in the second quarter.

On their next possession, Gurley made it 41-10 when he caught a 44-yard pass from Goff to set up first-and-goal from the Giants' 1-yard line.

Offensive pass interference and chop block penalties left the Rams with 3rd-and-33 from their own 48. Watkins' longest reception of the season gave the Rams a 24-7 lead.

The teams traded field goals in the final five minutes of the first half and the Rams held a 27-10 lead.

The onslaught continued in the third quarter, as the Rams scored 21 points in the period to remove all doubt.




After a long road trip that saw stops in Jacksonville, London and NY, the Rams will return home to Los Angeles next Sunday where they will host the Houston Texans at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum at 1:05PM PST.

On their first series of the third quarter, the Rams drove 75 yards in seven plays and took a 34-10 lead on Gurley's one-yard touchdown run.

To no one's surprise, the Giants were able to find another way to lose. The Rams scored 17 points off the Giants' three turnovers - two fumbles and an interception.

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. Manning finished 20-of-36 passing for 220 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

Los Angeles is now 6-2 on the season at its midway point.

The Giants, who dropped to 1-7, looked like a team in disarray entering the game.
