Los Angeles is coming off its bye week and the time off must've been very good to the Rams players, because the report released to the media on Friday says all 22 Rams starters are healthy and available for Sunday's game against NY at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. They went with a screen pass and not only got the 33 yards, but they added another 19 for the touchdown.
Relevant to the latter point, Los Angeles has now eclipsed its point total from the entire 2016 season in its first eight games. 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. It was Watkins' third TD catch of the season; the other two came in a Thursday night game against San Francisco on September 21.
The Giants, who dropped to 1-7, looked like a team in disarray entering the game. 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. Last November, they scored a total of 50 points in four games. 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. Goff left the game in the fourth quarter having thrown for 311 yards and four TDs.
Majority came in the form of big plays, including a 67-yard connection between Goff and a wide-open Sammy Watkins just two minutes after Woods' score.
On 3rd-and-2, Goff hit tight end Tyler Higbee in the middle of the end zone for an eight-yard touchdown. The first came on a Gurley one-yard run to cap a seven-play, 75-yard drive to open the second half. Darkwa started with an early 24-yard run, but the opening drive came to an abrupt end when Eli Manning was sacked by All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald and lost the football. At that point, the Rams had held the ball for less than 10 minutes.
Other than Davis -whose roster spot will be filled by third-year man Isaiah Johnson-the Rams will be completely healthy heading into Sunday.
