EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Will the second half of the season by any better for the New York Giants than their miserable, unexpected 1-6 first half? We begin to find out Sunday as the under-manned, seemingly in turmoil, Giants host the 5-2 Los Angeles Rams at MetLife Stadium.
The Giants will have to slow down a Los Angeles that is averaging 30.3 points per game, or find a way to keep pace with it. A difficult task either way considering that the Giants average 16 points per game and will be without four defensive starters.
Use this as your first-half open thread.

OL Justin Pugh (back); LB Jonathan Casillas (neck); DE Olivier Vernon (ankle); DE Kerry Wynn (knee); LB B.J. Goodson (ankle); CB Donte Deayon (ankle); QB Davis Webb
Deayon injured his ankle during practice this week. That led the Giants to promote cornerback Tim Scott from the practice squad and place center Weston Richburg (concussion) on IR.
Defensive end Avery Moss will start in place of Olivier Vernon, and Calvin Munson and Keenan Robinson will start at linebacker.
