The Rams' 4 biggest causes for concern vs. the Giants on Sunday

The Rams' 4 biggest causes for concern vs. the Giants on Sunday”

The Giants special teams have been abysmal this year. He is in the top 15 in passing yards per game and National Football League quarterback rating for players who have thrown more than 100 passes this season.

"You definitely have to watch", wide receiver Sammy Watkins said of Sunday's contest. In the last three games, Manning's quarterback rating has been under 41.

It's imperative that the Giants get off to a fast start, not only to build momentum in the game but to keep the fans energized and into the action.

"One of the things you realize about this league is that it's one day at a time, one game at a time and if you don't take that mindset and mentality, you get humbled very quickly", McVay said. "With the previous experience that I have going against this team, they'll be ready to go and we need to be ready as well if we're going to come away with a win". Early on, NY lost two of its primary receivers, Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall to season-ending ankle injuries.

Last season, the Giants held Gurley to 57 yards on 15 carries, but this is not the same Gurley, or Giants defense, from past year. "We had a couple of people targeted, but in terms of somebody who we felt like was extremely important, not just on the field, but the influence they could have on the locker room, especially just some of the younger linemen". We knew he was a great player, and I've heard great things about him just from him being in Cincinnati and my relationship with [former Bengals offensive coordinator, current Redskins head coach] Jay Gruden. "Because if he gets hot, he's gone". That's exactly what the Giants did with him last time out against the Seahawks, and it led to his best game of the season. With the 5-2 Los Angeles Rams coming into East Rutherford on Sunday, all of the noise could go away with a win over a much a better Los Angeles team. If not, he could have a big game. But both teams do not resemble what they were a season ago.

The Rams have responded under McVay's guidance, in particular, quarterback Jared Goff. Through seven games he has completed 60 percent of his passes for nine touchdowns.

So the Giants defense will need to get extra possessions for their offense by forcing turnovers. The bad news the Giants will be without their best cornerback as Janoris Jenkins has been suspended indefinitely for violating team policies.

"They have some good players and they throw a lot of different looks at you to try and confuse an offense", tight end Tyler Higbee said.

"I think it's also important to consider: What does the tape look like?" said McVay [who is three years younger than Whitworth].
