Rams 10, Giants 7 with 14:52 left in 2nd quarter

Things only got worse once the game kicked off. According to Pro Football Reference, the Rams rank 32nd in strength of schedule to date - a rank that will certainly stay the same after they play the one-win Giants in Week 9. 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 hurt themselves defensively with a personal foul for unnecessary roughness on Landon Collins and a long completion to the Rams' other tight end: rookie Gerald Everett. They went with a screen pass and not only got the 33 yards, but they added another 19 for the touchdown.

Goff was pulled midway through the fourth quarter as the Rams beat the Giants 51-17.

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. Less than three minutes into the first quarter, Aaron Donald broke into the Giants' backfield, sacked Manning and forced a fumble that the Rams recovered near midfield.

That was one of four touchdown passes on the day for second-year quarterback Jared Goff, three of which came in the first half. The Rams, meanwhile, are second in the league behind only the Houston Texans, averaging 30.3 points per game. 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. The Giants are still winless at home, also the first time they have started 0-4 at home since 1980.

It was the team's second first-quarter touchdown of the season.

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. 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 2016 Rams, through 16 games: 224 points.
