The second quarter saw both teams unable to make a lot of progress on the offensive side of the ball. It became a kind of back and forth affair with lot of 3 and outs. The 2nd quarter was also characterized by and lot of Rams penalties and mistakes. A Sam Bradford lateral ended up in the hands of the Giants defense and was run all the way back for a TD bringing the score to 14-6. Even with all of our problems it looked like we might make it into the half relatively unscathed, but on first and 20 with 2 minutes left in the half the Rams committed a penalty which basically communicated, “Advance to Go and collect $200.” If the message wasn’t clear enough; a wide open Manningham catching a 31 yard pass (bringing the Giants to the Rams 22 yard line) said the rest. The very next Play Eli threw to wide receiver Hixon for the remaining 22 yards and 6 more points. The Rams go into the half down 21-6.
