The Giants Gave Up A Touchdown On Third And 33

Manning finished a drive with a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tavarres King later in the first quarter, but that would be the only time NY reached the end zone against Los Angeles' first-team defense. The first came on a Gurley one-yard run to cap a seven-play, 75-yard drive to open the second half. They went with a screen pass and not only got the 33 yards, but they added another 19 for the touchdown.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning, center, reacts after he is forced to call a timeout early in the first quarter against the Rams at MetLife Stadium on November 5, 2017.

Eli Manning threw for 220 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in the loss.

In eight games, the Rams have surpassed their point and touchdown totals from the entire 2016 season. The lone bright spot for the Giants was an 11-yard touchdown catch by rookie Evan Engram late in the game.

Goff threw three touchdowns in the first half, finishing with 311 yards passing in arguably his best game as a pro.

The 51 points allowed by the Giants represented the most they have given up in a home game since September 19, 1999, when Washington scored 50. 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.

The Giants allowed plays of 35 or more yards to six different players, none longer than Goff's 67-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins.

Including a missed field goal by Aldrick Rosas for the fourth time in five games (he did not have an attempt in Week 5), the special teams outfit wasn't free of mistakes either.

At that point, the Rams were up 48-10. The Giants are still winless at home, also the first time they have started 0-4 at home since 1980. They then got a blocked punt from Cory Littleton and took a 41-10 lead on Goff's four-yard touchdown pass to Woods.
