The Giants Gave Up A Touchdown On Third And 33

The Giants Gave Up A Touchdown On Third And 33

The Rams surpassed the 30-point mark for the fifth time this season.

The only spot of trouble the Rams ran into came next, when the Giants went on a 14-play, 67-yard drive and tied the game 7-7 on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Manning to Tavarres King. After a three-and-out by the Giants that prompted boos from a scant crowd, Jared Goff dropped back into the pocket and aired it out to Sammy Watkins, who easily beat Giants corner Landon Collins in one-on-one coverage.

The Rams new and improved offense scored on eight of their first nine possessions, starting with a Goff touchdown to tight end Tyler Higbee after All-Pro lineman Aaron Donald strip-sacked Eli Manning on the Giants first drive of the game.

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. It gave them 229 points, five more than their NFL-low total from all of last season. They set up a screen with Robert Woods, playing it safe while hoping to get in field-goal range. It turned a 10-7 lead into a 10-point advantage and NY never looked the same in seeing its seven-game winning streak against the Rams end.

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.

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. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the score marked the first TD when a team needed at least 33 yards on third down since Peerless Price in 2001 with the Bills.

The 2016 Rams, through 16 games: 224 points. The Giants are still winless at home, also the first time they have started 0-4 at home since 1980. Woods got open on a shallow crossing route and Goff found him on 2nd-and-goal for a four-yard touchdown.

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.
