The loss, fueled by four interceptions thrown by Rams starting quarterback Case Keenum – two tipped by Rams receiver Tavon Austin, two thrown moronically – puts the team at 3-4 through seven weeks into the season. In retrospect, the Rams were 3-3 through the first seven weeks of the 2015 season (bye week at week 6). So, it is safe to say the Rams are right on track.
Same old sorry ass Rams. Hate to tell y’all we told you so, but fuck it we told y’all so.
Lets take a look back at how the Giants players to watched performed:
WR Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham was held to 49 yards on five receptions by the Rams secondary. However, that was not due to stellar play on the Rams behave (though the Rams secondary fared relatively well). It was a mere result of quarterback play.
Even with Beckham having little impact, the Giants still found a way to pull off the victory.
SS Landon Collins
Landon Collins had one of his best games against the Rams.
Not only did the former LSU Tiger pick off Keenum twice for his first two INTs of the season, the first of those two interceptions resulted with Collins breaking tackles and stretching outwards into the endzone for a touchdown.
Landon was near the ball all day. He not only played alert in coverage but also defended the run well. He was constantly near the line of scrimmage.
All in all, Collins tacked on eight tackles and two passes defended to go along with his two INTs and the defensive touchdown.
DT Damon Harrison
The Giants’ big man had himself a busy day against the Rams. Harrison totaled six tackles, one for a loss, a sack, and another QB hit.
Damon definitely did his job as a run stuffing nose tackle, limiting L.A.’s running back Todd Gurley to 57 yards on 15 carries.
Cannot ask the big fella for much else.
CB Janoris Jenkins
Rams receiver Brian Quick burned Janoris Jenkins for a quick 48-yard reception early on in the match up, but that was pretty much it. For the rest of the game, it continued to be “Clampseason2.0“ for the Jackrabbit. The fifth-year corner totaled four tackles along with three passes defended.
Jenkins’ colleague, veteran Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie had himself quite a day as well. The ninth-year corner picked off Case Keenum twice, both coming in the endzone.
QB Eli Manning
Can’t spell ELITE without Eli. Haha.
And that is the sad part. Eli did not defeat the Rams. He did not do jack shit. He simply did not fuck it up.
Take note Case. Since you are remaining as L.A.’s starting QB.
