NFL Week 9: Keys for Giants vs. Rams

NFL Week 9: Keys for Giants vs. Rams

Manning finished a drive with a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tavarres King later in the first quarter, but that would be the only time NY reached the end zone against Los Angeles' first-team defense.

The Los Angeles Rams have the second-best scoring offense in the NFL. "You can't have a punt block".

The takeaways and points started early, when defensive tackle Aaron Donald recorded a strip-sack of quarterback Eli Manning on the game's first drive.

Four plays later, Goff connected with tight end Tyler Higbee on an 8-yard touchdown. The Giants were driving again, and were particularly effective on the ground, and reached midfield when Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree burst into the NY backfield and stripped the ball from running back Wayne Gallman Jr.

On the next drive, the Rams reached the Giants' red zone again but had to settle for a Greg Zuerlein 27-yard field goal and a 10-7 lead in the first minute of the second quarter.

Ultimately, not even Mother Nature could save the Nittany Lions from the tail end of a three-game East Division maelstrom. Barkley had 14 carries for 63 yards, caught three passes for 33 yards and had two kick returns for 15 yards.

"Offensively, we've got to do a better job protecting the football", Manning said.

After middle linebacker Alec Ogletree's forced fumble became the second takeaway of the first half, wide receiver Robert Woods improbably scored his first touchdown of the season. But the embarrassment wasn't over yet.

Cory Littleton then blocked a Brad Wing punt deep in Giants territory to set the Rams up on the Giants' 18-yard line.

ABOUT THE RAMS (5-2): Todd Gurley, who ranks fifth in the league with 627 rushing yards, is seeking his fourth straight 100-yard performance on the road. McAdoo was asked what he told his team at halftime with the big deficit, and the official transcript simply read, "Um".
