The Giants had the first possession and moved across the field with ease. Then true to form an error prone Eli Manning throws his first interception of the night. The Rams reciprocated and also moved smoothly down the field. The highlight of the drive was a 68 yard pass from Bradford to Alexander. The Rams stall in the red zone and settle for 3 points.
Next the Giants go 3 and out only to recover the ball as rookie Salas coughs the punt up in Rams territory. The Rams hold, but Coughlin decides to go for it on 4th down. A key penalty deep in the red zone keeps the Giants drive alive. The pay off is a TD pass and the score becomes 7-3 Giants.
The Rams continue with their no huddle offense. They look great and once again move quickly down the field. Unfortunately, they stalled again in the red zone. I don’t think we can win if we can’t get into the end zone, but the resulting field goal brings the quarter to an end at Giants 7 – Rams 6.
