The New York Giants (3-3) got off the schneid in Week 6, breaking a three-game losing streak thanks to a monster second half by Odell Beckham Jr. They’ll look to ride that momentum into the UK this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams (3-3), losers of their last two.

Big Blue opens as a 2.5 point favorite in Twickenham, England, on neutral ground (the Rams are considered the home team). If the Giants hope to be in serious contention for the NFC East, there are a handful of games they must have. This is one of them.
They aren’t quite as desperate as they were heading into the Ravens game, but they’ll want to keep the offense rolling and get a win over a beatable Rams team.
Even with sophomore standout Todd Gyards per game). They aren’t much better through the air (220.5 yards per game) or at putting points on the board (18.3), ranking 28th and 29th respectively.
They’ve given up the 10th-most passing TDs in the league (11) and have allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete 62 percent of their throws.

They’ll see the Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) twice, and have a game remaining against both the Dallas Cowboys (5-1) and Washington Redskins (4-2). Tough matchups with the Cincinnati Bengals (Week 10) and Pittsburgh Steelers (Week 14) also loom large.
