The Giants Gave Up A Touchdown On Third And 33

Despite entering Sunday's game against the Rams with only seven turnovers this season - only three teams in the league had committed fewer - the Giants gave away another game in their 51-17 loss at MetLife Stadium on an interception, a pair of lost fumbles and a blocked punt. 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. Quarterback Jared Goff threw for a career highs in both yards (311) and touchdowns (four).

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. But as always, here are five takeaways from the Rams most recent win against the Giants to help earn their fifth win in six games. They scored 30 or more points just 5 times between 2014-16. The last time the Giants allowed 40 or more points in a game was in a 52-49 loss at New Orleans on November 1, 2015. Woods got open on a shallow crossing route and Goff found him on 2nd-and-goal for a four-yard touchdown.

The Giants managed a fourth-quarter touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Manning to tight end Evan Engram to make it 48-17.


At that point, the Rams were up 48-10.

The Rams took the lead for good with 14:55 left in the second quarter on Greg Zuerlein's first of two field goals in the quarter, a 27-yarder.

The scoring continued about two minutes of game time later, when Goff connected with wide receiver Sammy Watkins on a 67-yard bomb for a touchdown.
