The Giants got off to a slow start, as per the usual, falling behind 10-0 after an opening-drive Larry Donnell fumble and a few Brad Wing punts.
Victor Cruz dropped what would have been a first-down reception, something that’s become a trend lately. He atoned for that lapse with a big catch-and-run on the Giants’ first scoring drive, a 29-yard field goal by newly-acquired Robbie Gould.
Landon Collins scored the Giants’ only TD, willing himself into the end-zone on a tough 44-yard interception return. Next to Janoris Jenkins, Collins has starred for this Giants’ defense.
Dwayne Harris went down with an injury right before the end of the half, and was carted off the field. More updates on his status to come.
The Giants will need to get the offense going in the final two quarters. The Rams will receive the kickoff to start the second half.
