Giants vs. Rams inactives: Olivier Vernon out, Sterling Shepard in

Adjust Comment Print

Eli Manning piloted a 72-yard touchdown drive once the Rams were up 38 points, but there were three turnovers and just as little life to the Giants offense as we saw on defense. It was Watkins' third TD catch of the season; the other two came in a Thursday night game against San Francisco on September 21. At halftime, Goff already has 209 passing yards and three touchdowns, including a 67-yard touchdown to wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The lone bright spot for the Giants was an 11-yard touchdown catch by rookie Evan Engram late in the game. And the Rams recorded at least 40 points for the third time this season.

Meanwhile, the G-Men have lost seven of their last eight games and find themselves in the cellar of the NFC East, a whopping six games behind the first place Philadelphia Eagles.

Higbee's touchdown made him the ninth consecutive tight end to score against the Giants defense, setting a new National Football League record for futility. And yet, a screen pass from Jared Goff turned L.A. wideout Robert Woods into a hot knife, and the Giants' defense just melted.

The 51 points allowed by the Giants represented the most they have given up in a home game since September 19, 1999, when Washington scored 50.

New Zealand win by 40 runs, level series 1-1
Mike Hesson's hypothesis and predictions were sound - Colin Munro is looking like a fine limited overs opening batsman. For India , it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah who put a halt on New Zealand's run flow in Rajkot .


Eli Manning threw for 220 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in the loss. The Rams will be back at home at the Coliseum for the first time in over a month next week to play the Texans.

It didn't take long for the Rams to take advantage. But a NY missed field goal as time expired in the second quarter kept the Rams with a 27-10 lead at halftime. Woods got open on a shallow crossing route and Goff found him on 2nd-and-goal for a four-yard touchdown. At that point, the Rams had held the ball for less than 10 minutes.

The Rams scored their third touchdown of the third quarter with 3:28 remaining, when Gurley scored on a four-yard run to put the Rams up 48-10.
