The Rams traveled thousands of miles to London and lost to the
Each week we take a look at the tape to see what worked, what didn't and what you might have missed.
What: Rams WR
Down: Third and seven
Time: 11:20 left in first quarter
Austin doesn't have to do much to make this play work; he has the inside position on safety Andrew Adams (33) and just has to make sure he holds on to the ball.
What: Rams QB Case Keenum runs into a sack
Down: Third and eight
Time: 6:03 left in first quarter
The Rams had to settle for a field goal on this drive after Keenum was sacked for a three-yard loss on this play.
When he drops back to pass, it looks like Keenum has a couple of options in tight end Lance Kendricks (88) down on the bottom or running back Benny Cunningham (23) near the top. The problem is the Giants' pass rush appears to cut off his throwing lanes, so he steps up.
And that doesn't work.
What: Rams RT Rob Havenstein's hold erases a big gain by
Down: First and 10
Time: 2:06 left in the second quarter
This is a brutal penalty. Keenum steps up in the pocket and delivers a dart to Kenny Britt (18), who puts on that spin move he perfected against the Lions, and goes for a 26-yard gain. It's too bad it gets wiped away.
Right tackle Rob Havenstein (79) has the unenviable task of dealing with
If Havenstein doesn't hold Vernon though, it's unlikely Keenum gets the pass off anyway.
What: Rams QB Case Keenum is picked off going for the big play
Down: Second and 10
Time: 4:10 left in fourth
On this play, Keenum goes big early to try to catch the Giants off guard, but New York is playing so well in coverage, and just he seems to pick the worst spot to throw it.
Tavon Austin (11) runs the deep route on this one and falls just in time to watch
What: Rams WR Bradley Marquez gets contacted illegally on final drive
Down: First and 10
Time: 1:01 left in fourth quarter
The Rams could have used a little help from the officials on this play. As receiver Bradley Marquez (10) runs into the end zone, he’s illegally contacted by cornerback
Marquez had no idea a pass is coming his direction, and the ball is almost picked off by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (41) on the play.
But that's OK for the Giants corner, who gets his second interception of the day two plays later.
