The 51 points allowed by the Giants represented the most they have given up in a home game since September 19, 1999, when Washington scored 50.

On 3rd-and-2, Goff hit tight end Tyler Higbee in the middle of the end zone for an eight-yard touchdown. The first such score came when Giants quarterback Eli Manning was sacked on third-and-9 by defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who forced the ball out and to teammate Connor Barwin. Four plays later, the Rams scored the game's first touchdown. Manning found receiver Tavarres King on the 5-yard score, but it was all downhill from there.

According to ESPN Stats and Info, it's the first time a team has scored a touchdown with a down-and-distance of at least 33 yards since 2001.

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.

Rams' place kicker Greg Zuerlein continued his excellent season going a ideal 9-for-9 on kick attempts, including three field goals and six extra points.

The teams traded field goals in the final five minutes of the first half and the Rams held a 27-10 lead.

Goff then provided some spark with two consecutive deep touchdown passes.

On their next possession, Gurley made it 41-10 when he caught a 44-yard pass from Goff to set up first-and-goal from the Giants' 1-yard line. Seeking only some field position, Goff completed a short pass to receiver Robert Woods, but some bad coverage by the Giants allowed Woods to run 52 yards, essentially untouched, for a touchdown and a 17-7 lead. Two plays later, Goff connected with a wide-open Woods for his second touchdown of the game, a 4-yarder over the middle.

Goff was pulled midway through the fourth quarter as the Rams beat the Giants 51-17.

NY pulled a bit closer just after Manning became just the seventh quarterback in National Football League history to throw for over 50,000 yards.

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.

Big Blue hasn't scored 30 or more points since a Week 17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015.
