All the information you need to catch the New York Giants Week 9 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
The New York Giants are coming out of their bye week 1-6 in a much worse situation than they expected heading into the season. They’ll look to get back on track against the surprising Los Angeles Rams.
The LA Rams are 5-2 and have the No. 2 scoring offense in the NFL under rookie head coach Sean McVay. Second-year quarterback Jared Goff is making strides and showing why he was taken first overall in 2016. Running back Todd Gurley is having a bounce-back season behind an offensive line that’s been solidified by free agent acquisition Andrew Whitworth.
Defensively, defensive tackle Aaron Donald is done with his holdout and has resumed destroying opposing offenses. Linebacker and captain Alec Ogletree is also a leader on and off the field.
As for the New York Giants, quarterback Eli Manning is having a decent year when given time to throw. Unfortunately, Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg are both out for this game. It will be interesting to see what combinations we see on the offensive line. They need to step up if the Gmen are going to start winning games.
Getting a running game going is also important for the Giants. Orleans Darkwa and Wayne Gallman will have to get past Aaron Donald and the Rams tough defensive front.
New York has been without its top wide receivers but will get Sterling Shepard back for this game. Tight end Evan Engram has also been proving his worth as a first-round pick.

On the defensive side, the Giants will be without Olivier Vernon (ankle), Jonathan Casillas (neck), B.J. Goodson (ankle), Kerry Wynn (knee), and Janoris Jenkins (suspension). Jenkins was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules and will miss at least this week’s game against his former team.
The New York Giants are depleted but did have their bye week to prepare for this matchup. Unfortunately, the Los Angeles Rams are also coming off their bye and had equally as long to get ready. Big Blue’s big advantage will be that they’re playing at MetLife Stadium with the Rams flying across the country.
