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.

The first half of the teams' Week 9 meeting went about as you'd expect, with the Giants parting the seas for several big Rams play through the first two quarters.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Rams delivered a Giant beatdown on Sunday. Three plays later, Todd Gurley ran in his second touchdown on the way to a 51-point day for the Rams, the most allowed by the Giants since giving up 52 at New Orleans in 2015. Goff left the game in the fourth quarter having thrown for 311 yards and four TDs.

For the Giants, they'll look to win their second game of the season as they come off their bye week.


The Rams finished with 473 yards of total offense. Higbee, not normally used as a receiver, opened the scoring with an 8-yard touchdown grab 4:05 into the contest. But a NY missed field goal as time expired in the second quarter kept the Rams with a 27-10 lead at halftime.

It didn't take long for the Rams to take advantage. Seeking only some field position, Goff completed a short pass to receiver Robert Woods, but some bad coverage by the Giants allowed Woods to run 52 yards, essentially untouched, for a touchdown and a 17-7 lead.

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.

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. At that point, the Rams had held the ball for less than 10 minutes. They then got a blocked punt from Cory Littleton and took a 41-10 lead on Goff's four-yard touchdown pass to Woods.
