Quinn raises fist, Rams score quick TD in London

Quinn raises fist, Rams score quick TD in London

The first went right through Austin's hands and bounced to Landon Collins, who somehow scored on a 44-yard touchdown run in which he shed several tackles.

Keenum has thrown an interception on the Rams' last possession in each of the past three games.

And all afternoon, a swarming front four and linebacker corps kept Todd Gurley under control and Keenum scrambling for space. In a game that many believed the Rams would win, Keenum went out and completed 32-of-53 passes for 291 yards and a touchdown with four interceptions. The Rams defense sacked Stafford 46 minutes into the game, despite constant pressure from DT Aaron Donald.

"The windows are tight and the throws have to be more precise", Fisher said of Keenum's throws.

"What I would like to think is we are doing the best job possible to make the market ready".

Fisher said he had no intention of switching quarterbacks during the bye week. "Things have started to come to fruition now".

So there could be a little added edge to this game as they travel across the Atlantic for a game that breaks new ground once again for the National Football League with it being staged for the first time at Twickenham and covered by BBC2. Gurley has totaled fewer than 60 yards in five of his seven games and has yet to rush for more than 85 yards.

Despite a couple of miscues of their own they quickly punished Donnell's slippery fingers when Keenum connected with Tavon Austin from 10 yards for the opening touchdown.

The Giants took the field looking jet-lagged, Rams the savvy travelers. What running back needs to step it up for the most against the Rams to give this team a better chance of winning? "For him to be able to tuck the ball away and push the pile through the end zone shows a lot", McAdoo said. DEs Jason Pierre-Paul and Kerry Wynn split the third.

Defensively the Rams have struggled against the run this year, but as luck should have it the Giants don't have much of a run game as they have averaged 76 yard per game on the ground so far this season. Three days and a transatlantic flight later, Gould kicked two extra points and a 29-yard field goal in Sunday's win.

Gould for the past 11 years helped the Bears win as the most accurate kicker in their franchise history - and the 10th most accurate kicker in National Football League history. "It's a pretty special weekend". That likely will fuel debate on a potential quarterback change to overall No. 1 draft pick Jared Goff.

"Quarterback is not the reason we lost", Fisher said after Sunday's loss.

The New York Giants play the Los Angeles Rams in Twickenham Stadium, the home of England's rugby team in southwest London, to begin a slate of 13 games Sunday.

Both teams take their bye-week break next Sunday, a typical concession for teams that make the epic commute to London. For the Giants, who improve to 4-3, those playoff hopes were bolstered today. Their next three games are at home, starting with the division rival Philadelphia Eagles (4-2).

That gave NY (4-3) a lead it would never relinquish, while the positive start made by the Rams is now a distant memory after three consecutive defeats.
