Rams Rout Hapless Giants, 51-17, in Rainy Game at the Meadowlands

The pocket collapsed around Manning with All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald cleanly beating right guard D.J. Fluker and registering a sack. They went with a screen pass and not only got the 33 yards, but they added another 19 for the touchdown. The lone bright spot for the Giants was an 11-yard touchdown catch by rookie Evan Engram late in the game.

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. NY has dominated the all-time series of late, winning seven straight meetings since being edged by the Rams 15-14 in 2001. The Giants were still in the game, trailing 10-7, and had the Rams pinned back on a third-and-33 from their own 48. Their 51 points were the most allowed by the Giants since they gave up 52 at New Orleans in Week 8 of the 2015 season.

The Rams used a complete performance from each phase to trounce the Giants, 51-17 in Week 9. It marked the third time they have topped 40 points this season - after not scoring 40 points at all over the previous two seasons - and gave them a plus-108 point margin that is the NFL's best.

On the next drive, the Rams reached the Giants' red zone again but had to settle for a Greg Zuerlein 27-yard field goal and a 10-7 lead in the first minute of the second quarter.

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.

That was one of four touchdown passes on the day for second-year quarterback Jared Goff, three of which came in the first half. Woods got open on a shallow crossing route and Goff found him on 2nd-and-goal for a four-yard touchdown. The Rams will be back at home at the Coliseum for the first time in over a month next week to play the Texans.

The 2016 Rams, through 16 games: 224 points. Still, he passed the 50,000-yard mark for his career, becoming just the seventh quarterback in National Football League history to eclipse that number.
