Rams hold on to defeat Giants, 17-9

A late 55-yard Goff to Kupp TD sealed the deal

NFL: New York Giants at Los Angeles Rams Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

That was close. That was a fun one. The New York Giants were downed by the Los Angeles Rams in a low-scoring thriller, 17-9.

LA led the whole way through in this one, taking an early 7-0 lead on a two-yard Gerald Everett rushing touchdown. The Rams added a Sam Slocum 32-yard field goal in the second quarter and despite three Graham Gano field goals for the Giants, New York couldn’t get into the end zone against a stout defensive performance for the Rams.

Up 10-9 midway through the fourth quarter, a 55-yard strike from Jared Goff to Cooper Kupp ultimately iced the game, giving LA a 17-9 lead.

Despite their best efforts, a valiant comeback attempt from Giants QB Daniel Jones was thwarted by a Darious Williams interception, ending NY’s two-minute drive.

Jones looked sharp against a prevent defense, completing multiple passes and getting the Giants into the red zone before Williams nabbed his second interception of the year.

Goff finished the game going 25-of-32 for 200 yards and a score while the Rams couldn’t really get their rushing attack rolling. Malcolm Brown led Rams’ ball carriers with 37 yards on nine carries while Kupp led all pass-catchers with five receptions for 69 yards and the game’s lone receiving touchdown.

The Rams improved to 3-1 with the victory.
