Any fears that the bye week might have stunted their momentum subsided early, as the Rams pummeled the New York Giants in every area of the game and recorded a 51-17 victory at MetLife Stadium. His 311 passing yards and 4 touchdowns are both a new career high.
Manning's future in NY could be in peril as the Giants are heading towards a top 5 draft pick this offseason, and a massive rebuild that could took place without head coach Ben McAdoo who's job is in jeopardy despite leading the team to the playoffs last season.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (89) celebrates after catching a pass for a during an NFL football game during the first half of an NFL football game against the New York Giants Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, in East Rutherford, N.J. The first such score came when Giants quarterback Eli Manning was sacked on third-and-9 by defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who forced the ball out and to teammate Connor Barwin. 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.
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. 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 Rams, meanwhile, are second in the league behind only the Houston Texans, averaging 30.3 points per game.
The Giants managed a fourth-quarter touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Manning to tight end Evan Engram to make it 48-17.
The Rams, after a series of bad penalties, faced a 3rd-and-33 play from their own 48.
The Giants, who dropped to 1-7, looked like a team in disarray entering the game. The Giants gave up seven plays of 20 yards or more, none as costly as the third-and-33 conversion for a 52-yard touchdown.
The teams traded field goals in the final five minutes of the first half and the Rams held a 27-10 lead. They then got a blocked punt from Cory Littleton and took a 41-10 lead on Goff's four-yard touchdown pass to Woods. Orleans Darkwa ran for 71 yards on 16 carries.
