The second half opened up with the Rams looking good on offense again. A 31 yard strike to Alexander brought the Rams to the Giants 16 yard line. A TD here puts us right back into the game, but without our pro bowl running back Steven Jackson our power running game has been hurt. We were unable to punch it in and the field goal makes the score 21-9. The Rams trail by a manageable 12 points.
On the next Giants drive the Rams donate 37 yards worth of penalties. We pat the Giants on the back as Jacobs’ 9 yard power run take them into the end zone. If we were still counting, the score would be 28-9. But don’t totally despair. The Rams are able to finally shake hands with the Giants end zone on the very next drive. Bradford uses all of the weapons available to him in the Rams offensive arsenal. Cadillac Williams touches the ball, Simms-Walker gets several touches, and Alexander pulls down a beautiful 19 yard reception as the Rams get their first touchdown of the game. Not only do we add 7 points to the score board (28-16 Giants), but we are also seeing the creation of an offensive identity. We have Williams keeping the defense honest with his short yardage gains, we have Simms-Walker becoming our every down utility receiver, and most importantly we have 6’5” Alexander becoming our long ball threat.
We have one more quarter to silence our critics and pull a win out of our hat.
