Giants defense a no-show in 51-17 loss to Rams

Throwback Thursday Rams set NFL record with three safeties vs. Giants

Throwback Thursday Rams set NFL record with three safeties vs. Giants

The Rams will be back at home at the Coliseum for the first time in over a month next week to play the Texans. Last November, they scored a total of 50 points in four games.

The defense had the Los Angeles Rams offense right where they wanted them, facing a seemingly un-makable 3rd and 33.

The Giants (1-6) are dealing with another off-field controversy after cornerback Janoris Jenkins was suspended indefinitely after he missed Monday's practice following their bye week.

The rest of the defensive backfield was on the field but didn't seem to offer much resistance.

Todd Gurley ran for two second half scores as the Rams easily blew out the defenseless Giants on their home turf to move into first place in the NFC West. Just minutes earlier, they had allowed a third-and-33 that led to a 52-yard touchdown on a screen pass to Robert Woods.

Injured Nadal a doubt for London
The 31-year-old Nadal has become the oldest player to achieve year-end No. 1 Emirates ATP Ranking since 1973. Nadal, who has never won the Paris Masters , did not know yet whether he would be fit for London.

Los Angeles Rams' Sammy Watkins (12) runs for a touchdown during the first half of an NFL football game against the New York Giants Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, in East Rutherford, N.J. It started with a sack by All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who forced Eli Manning to fumble in the process. Manning finished 20-of-36 passing for 220 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. But a NY missed field goal as time expired in the second quarter kept the Rams with a 27-10 lead at halftime.

The quick-strike Rams scored touchdowns on six drives through the first three quarters, none of them taking more than 3:35.

"Well, when you play a talented football team and you handle the ball the way we handled the ball, you tackle the way you tackled today", coach Ben McAdoo said and continued, "we punted, we had a blocked punt and we struggled to cover a punt, unfortunately, that's what the scoreboard is going to look like". The Giants, who were an 11-5 playoff team last season, are now in the running for the No. 1 overall pick.

Mara has watched his team go sideways. Everyone has to be on notice.
