Giants vs. Rams preview:
The Giants started off the season with back-to-back wins over the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints. New York then dropped three consecutive games to the Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, and Green Bay Packers. The Giants got back on track last weekend with a 27-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Odell Beckham Jr. had a huge game against the Ravens, accounting for over 200 yards and two touchdowns.
Somehow, someway the Rams are 3-3. After opening the season with a horrible 28-0 loss to a terrible San Francisco 49ers team, Los Angeles found a way to three in a row, including wins over Seattle and Arizona. The Rams then followed that up with two straight losses to the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions.
The Giants and Rams have played 42 times in history, with the Rams owning a 25-15 advantage in the regular season. The teams have met twice in the playoffs, splitting the series.
Giants vs. Rams prediction:
The Giants have struggled to run the football this year, with injury to running back Rashad Jennings and their emphasis on the passing game. New York may want to find a more balanced attack against the Rams, who are one of the worst rushing defense this year. Los Angeles defends the pass well, giving up just 258 yards per game through the air.
Travel from the west coast of the United States to London will take a toll on the Rams, and the Giants will make them pay. Eli and company will dominate on the offensive end, and the highly paid defense will earn its money.
