After a long road trip that saw stops in Jacksonville, London and NY, the Rams will return home to Los Angeles next Sunday where they will host the Houston Texans at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum at 1:05PM PST.

The Giants allowed three pass plays of over 40 yards in the first half, including a 67-yard touchdown to a wide-open Sammy Watkins in the second quarter.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Rams delivered a Giant beatdown on Sunday.

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.

The 51 points allowed were the most in a home game since 1964, and the most ever allowed by the Giants at MetLife Stadium. Eli Manning needs to throw for 186 yards to become the seventh quarterback in National Football League history with 50,000 career passing yards.

Relevant to the latter point, Los Angeles has now eclipsed its point total from the entire 2016 season in its first eight games.

Michigan State's last-second field goal sinks Penn State's playoff hopes

Lebanese Prime Minister resigns over fear for life
The government have managed to avoid the country being embroiled in the worst of the conflict taking place in neighbouring Syria. The prime minister's resignation will raise tensions in the country and has thrown its political future into uncertainty.

The Rams didn't do much on the ground but they didn't need to, as Todd Gurley finished with 59 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries, and also caught two passes for 45 yards. Higbee, not normally used as a receiver, opened the scoring with an 8-yard touchdown grab 4:05 into the contest.

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.

Then came the big moment.

The Rams, after a series of bad penalties, faced a 3rd-and-33 play from their own 48. Goff hit Woods with a screen pass, and with good blocks ahead of him, the wideout went 52 yards for the score.

The Rams scored their third touchdown of the third quarter with 3:28 remaining, when Gurley scored on a four-yard run to put the Rams up 48-10. At that point, the Rams had held the ball for less than 10 minutes.
