Los Angeles Rams vs New York Giants

The defeat was the third in as many home games this season for the Giants, who have allowed at least 24 points in each of their last five losses. Rams receivers were running wide open deep downfield in the first half. Manning found receiver Tavarres King on the 5-yard score, but it was all downhill from there. The second was a 67-yard strike to receiver Sammy Watkins.

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.

If one play gets remembered this season for all the wrong reasons, it would be the third-and-33 conversion by the Rams, who entered Sunday as the No. 1 team in the league on third down. Goff hit Woods with a screen pass, and with good blocks ahead of him, the wideout went 52 yards for the score.

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.

The 12-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the groin and was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center. A second man sustained a gunshot wound to the body; police say he self-transported to Weiss Hospital.

The two teams traded field goals later in the second quarter, with cornerback Trumaine Johnson's second interception of the year leading to Zuerlein's. Two plays later, Goff connected with a wide-open Woods for his second touchdown of the game, a 4-yarder over the middle. 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.

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.

NOTES: Giants QB Eli Manning became the seventh player in National Football League history to pass for 50,000 yards, joining Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Tom Brady, Dan Marino, John Elway and Drew Brees. Manning finished 20-of-36 passing for 220 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
