THE GAME

The Giants (1-6) vs. the Los Angeles Rams (5-2) at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

That dark cloud that's been hovering over the Giants all season? Yeah, it'll be there Sunday. The forecast calls for "considerable cloudiness" and intermittent rain with a temperature in the low 60s. As if the crowd wasn't going to be small enough for this one ...

WHAT IT MEANS

There are really two ways this season can go for head coach Ben McAdoo. His team can show some fight, keep the games competitive and maybe steal a win or two. Or his team can surrender and start getting blown out. Now that they're back from their bye, whichever way they start out is likely where the rest of the games are headed. They are very undermanned now, and they know they have nothing to play for, so motivation won't be easy. Neither will be responding when things go wrong (and things will go wrong). It will be a test of McAdoo's coaching and leadership ability. How the team reacts may determine whether he keeps his job.

While the New York Giants are still alive in the postseason and head to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild-card round, their 2017 opponents became official on Sunday.

The Giants will have four road games on the West Coast next season, traveling to face the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. 

In addition to home and road games against their division rivals, New York will travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year.

THE GAME: The Giants (3-3) vs. the Los Angeles Rams (3-3) at Twickenham Stadium in London on Sunday, Oct. 23, 9:30 a.m. ET.THE WEATHER: It's exactly what you'd expect in London, but possibly without the fog and the rain. Temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 50s with a bit of wind (10-20 miles per hour) and plenty of clouds.WHAT IT MEANS: The Giants got themselves back on track last weekend with a solid, gutty performance against an undermanned Ravens team, and this is their chance to keep their momentum going heading into the bye. Really, if they are 4-3 at the bye with all the issues that have been swirling around them, and they're only a game-and-a-half behind the idle Cowboys, whom they've already beaten, that puts them in pretty good position at the nearly halfway point. They'll take that. It's certainly better than having two weeks to think about a loss, on top of everything else that's going on.

The 3-3 Giants will face the 3-3 Los Angeles Rams at Twickenham Stadium in London on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. ET. The winner gets to take a 4-3 record into their bye week. For the Giants, that can speak volumes considering they were 2-3 going into Week 6 with their future in doubt.Here's how the matchups shake out this week...

The Giants were chided this offseason by critics and NFL executives for giving former Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins a five-year, $62 million contract. Jenkins had never made the Pro Bowl but always been considered a top talent, but his performance did not exactly reflect it. In short, he wasn't worth the money.In his four seasons with the Rams, who selected him with the 39th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of North Alabama (by way of Florida), Jenkins had been a hit-or-miss prospect. His stats were all over the map, as per Ben Stockwell of Pro Football Focus.

Overall Grade: B:?It wasn't a perfect game by the defense this week, but it was good enough to win on the road. It's rare you allow 5.3 YPC on the ground and 290 yards passing and walk away with a win. It was a clutch performance all around with the Giants +3 in the give/take department.

For the third week in a row, the Giants' pass rush led the way and the rest of the defense followed. ?The Rams were forced to throw and the Giants made QB Shaun Hill pay for his dropbacks (2 sacks, 5 QB hits)and shutting the Rams down in key situations (1 for 6 on third down).

The performance was a surprise to some, but the Giants were prepared. Sparked by a focused Eli Manning and Rueben Randle the offense went off against the Rams' overzealous defense, taking the lead early and never looking back. WR Odell Beckham, Jr. and RB Andre Williams continued their strong rookie campaigns. They?exceeded 100 yards in the same game for the second time this season. Before this year, Giants rookies had not had 100 rushing and 100 receiving yards in the same game even once.

The Giants' 514 yards, are the most accumulated in a single game since they gained 604 yards in a victory over Tampa Bay on Sept. 16, 2012. The?386 net passing yards was their highest total since they threw for 428 yards on Sept. 8, 2013 against Dallas. Eli Manning racked up a 131.5 QBR in the first half, completing 16 of 18 passes for 200 yards and a TD.

The Giants had a 300-yard passer, a 100-yard rusher and a 100-yard receiver for the first time since Dec. 1, 2011, in a victory at Dallas, where Manning threw for 400 yards, Brandon Jacobs ran for 101 yards and Nicks had 163 receiving yards.

The Giants (5-9) will travel to St. Louis to face the Rams (6-8) on Sunday. Not a marquee game by any stretch, and can only be seen in those markets on FOX at 4:05 p.m. Thom Brennaman, David Diehl and Laura Omkin will provide the call on FOX. It will be the third time in the last four weeks that Diehl will covering the Giants.

The matchup features two clubs finishing disappointing seasons. The Rams have struggled offensively at times against contending teams. They are 20th in rushing offense and 26th in passing. They are 20th in points scored.

Like the Giants, the Rams are still playing hard for their respective coaches as the playoffs drift further out of their reach.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? Now a Jet, former Rams first round pick Jason Smith won?t admit to any special emotions or feeling this Sunday in St. Louis. Instead, he?s having too much fun in green and white to admit to that.

Smith endured an up and down tenure with the Rams, where four years ago he was a first round pick. Expectations were high, some of which he met and some of which were unfulfilled and led him to becoming a bit of a whipping boy among the Rams fan base. He was traded to the Jets this season in exchange for the much maligned Wayne Hunter and with his new team he?s primarily been used as a jumbo tight end.

There?s no extra feelings for Smith this week leading up to a return to the team that drafted and then three years later traded him. ??I play for the Jets and that?s my life now,? Smith told The Jets Blog.

The Washington Redskins, spurned by the Peyton Manning camp, have struck a deal with the St.Louis Rams to acquire the second overall selection in next month's NFL Draft.

With that selection, they are expected to take the Heisman Trophy winner, QB Robert Griffin III of Baylor. Griffin will give the Redskins - who defeated the Super Bowl champion Giants twice in 2011 - instant credibility and makes them contenders in the NFC East again.

In return for the Rams' selection, Washington will fork over their first and second round picks this year (No. 6 overall), and their first round selections in 2013 and 2014.

Rumors have surfaced that former

Giants' DC Steve Spagnuolo may be returning to Philadelphia after he is dismissed as head coach of the St. Louis Rams next week.

Spags would assume the DC job currently being occupied by Juan Castillo, who would likely be moved back to the offensive staff.

The Giants may be subject to league sanctions should NFL officials find they intentionally faked injuries to stall a Rams' drive in Monday night's win.

There is no set fine or punishment for feigning injuries to force a timeout without penalty, but the Giants could be on the verge of finding out exactly how the league handles these situations.

The Rams were In the process of driving down the field using their no-huddle formation and were in position to score when Giants CB Deon Grant and LB Jacquian Williams both hit the turf in apparent pain. Moments later, after the officials stepped in, was clear neither was injured but the Rams drive was halted. The damage had been done.

Tom Coughlin updated reporters today on the injuries sustained by WRs Mario Manningham and Domenik Hixon during last night's victory over St. Louis:

"As far as I know, all of the tests, all of the protocol for a concussion are being conducted today, right now. He (Manningham) was much clearer when he left the stadium last night. He was much more bright-eyed this morning when he was in, but nevertheless, he?s going through the entire battery of tests that are part of the protocol for someone who leaves the game with any type of head injury. We?ll wait and see what the doctors have to say today when he finishes his exam."

On Hixon, who will undergo an MRI on his knee:

Considering how the Giants looked against the Redskins last week, and how tumultuous the preseason was, the Giants will take a victory any way they can get it.

In the Giants 28-16 win over the St. Louis on Monday night, things didn?t always look oh so pretty (Rams had 367 total yards to the Giants 300), but who wouldn?t take a double-digit win (heck, any win) these days?

So, the Giants got their must-win victory. Now on to the good, the bad and the ugly.

Feeling more relief than?pain this morning, Giant fans still cannot be doing cartwheels over last night's performance.

Last night the Giants walked out of MetLife Stadium winners by a score of 28-16. They downed an already down St. Louis club, who were without their top two offensive players in RB Steven Jackson and WR Danny Amendola.

The team overcame a slow start by QB Eli Manning to drill their old DC, Steve Spagnuolo, and his young, up and coming squad.

No one knows better than the New York Giants and St. Louis Rams? head coach Steve Spagnuolo that it?s entirely possible to start an NFL season 0-2 and still win a league championship.

But, that doesn?t mean anyone wants to start that way if they can help it.

You don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Don't ask. You just don't do it. The Giants took what the young Rams gave them last night and turned it into a win. That is what is expected of you in this league if you want to make your mark.

DE Justin Tuck, who missed the first game of the season with sore neck, played and played well last night registering four tackles and 1.5 sacks. When asked if this was an ugly win, he was quick to discredit the notion:

"There?s no such thing as an ugly win--a win is a win. With all the parity in this league, they are a part of the comeback. We?ll take a win any way they come. Obviously there are things we need to correct and get better at, but we?re still proud with how we played tonight."From Geico SportsNite

That, as they say, is more like it.

- Eli Manning looked bad early, but was much, much better in the second half. He finished the game 18/29 for 200 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

- The big play of the game was an incomplete backwards pass by Sam Bradford that was picked up by Michael Boley and returned 65 yard for a touchdown. Justin Tuck had 1.5 sacks to lead the pass rush attack for which this defense is known. The secondary was still suspect, which is a concern moving forward, but tonight they were good enough.

- Eli sacked to end the Giants' first drive of the fourth quarter. With Manningham out for the game (concussion), Eli is going to have to rely on Hakeem Nicks and the running game. Maybe we'll see another receiver step up as Domenik Hixon did in the second quarter. Or the defense can make it all a moot point by standing firm.

- That's more like it. The defense forced a quick three and out to get the ball back. Aaron Ross returned the punt with Hixon's knee again an issue, but he didn't look as explosive as he has in the past.

- Steve Weatherford booted a brilliant punt to pin the Rams at their own five, but Zak DeOssie was flagged for an unnecessary roughness penalty to move it up to the twenty. Not smart, especially from a guy who went to Brown.

- Nice of ESPN to show part of the halftime ceremony commemorating the 25th anniversary of the 1986 Super Bowl team. Seemed like a great ceremony.

- Another big play by Boley, who tipped a third down pass to save a touchdown after Danario Alexander beat Aaron Ross in the end zone. The Rams settled for another short field goal.

- Now we're rolling! Brandon Jacobs went in untouched from nine yards out to give the Giants some breathing room. The score was set up by Ahmad Bradshaw's 23 yard screen pass, who was sprung by a nice block from David Baas.

- Sam Bradford threw an incomplete pass to Carnell Williams that was correctly ruled a lateral, which was scooped up by Michael Boley and returned 64-yards for a Giants touchdown (and consequently won me my fantasy matchup! And the ESPN experts said to bench Giants D...).

- The Giants' defense has come alive as a result of the big turnover! Jason Pierre-Paul almost sacked Sam Bradford near the end zone, and the Giants' secondary held to force an easy three-and-out.

- The passing game has been putrid so far. Hopefully they'll get it together sooner or later, because if they can't start to gel against this Rams' secondary, I have a hard time believing they'll be able to suddenly figure it out against the Eagles' high-priced corners.

- The Giants' first drive got off to a good start, with Ahmad Bradshaw breaking off a few nice cut-back runs. It ended with a thud when Quintin Mikell picked off an Eli Manning pass intended for Mario Manningham. Manning was baited into throwing to what looked like a wide open Manningham.

- The defense held and forced a Josh Brown field goal after a 68 yard pass to Danario Alexander to the one yard line. Deon Grant made a rookie mistake, neglecting to touch Alexander after he fell to the ground to make the catch, allowing him to get up and gain more yardage, but Greg Jones and the defense stood tough on the next three drives.

- Greg Salas muffed his first NFL punt return, and the Giants recovered in Rams' territory. It looks like these two teams have a lot in common.

One of the stories heading into Monday night was the injuries for both teams. Well one of the biggest questions has been answered: Rams star running back Steven Jackson will not play against the Giants tonight, according to Albert Breer.

Breer also passes forth information?that both Justin Tuck and Hakeem Nicks will play tonight.

This is a huge blow for the Rams' offense, as Jackson is easily their best offensive player, and the central cog in their rushing attack. The Rams will now lean heavily on Carnell Williams, who is capable, but not explosive.

From our friends at the NFL Media Dept:

Two teams with playoff aspirations will look to bounce back after opening the season with a loss. In the spotlight on Monday night will be two quarterbacks drafted No. 1 overall ? the Rams? SAM BRADFORD (2010) and the Giants? ELI MANNING (2004).

Bradford, who is expected to play despite a bruise on his right index finger, is coming off an impressive rookie season. The 2010 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year guided St. Louis to seven wins and set NFL rookie records with 590 attempts and 354 completions while ranking second all-time among rookies with 3,512 yards.

What do Giant fans have to look forward to on Monday night?

Lets get behind the numbers.?? For starters, I don't think anyone in the NFL would say that the Eagles pass rush is better than the New York Giants and if Justin Tuck plays it's no contest.??

The Eagles has 5 sacks and 11 QB?hits in last weeks game.? You could expect Kiwi, Tolley and JPP to match those numbers and it wouldn't surprise me to see a safety or corner blitz thrown in a handful of times.

The Giants are readying for their game with the Rams Monday and it appears that WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) may be in the lineup.

"If I had to play tomorrow, I?d be out there," Nicks told reporters yesterday. "Feeling pretty good. Went out there today, did some stuff. It was kind of like a light day so I didn?t get to do too much, but I felt normal out there for what I did do.... They decided they?re not letting me jump out there yet. They want to get a full week of heeling underneath my belt, but still look forward to playing Monday night....The swelling is gone. The pain is not really there. I think I?ll be alright."

DE Justin Tuck (neck) was limited yesterday and is still a gametime decision. In other news, DE Osi Umenyiora appears to be on track for a Week 3 return vs Philadelphia. He worked on the side and looks to be ready to resume practicing in earnest next week.

It's enough the Giant fans and bloggers slam Eli Manning. We're allowed. But when other teams' fans and bloggers do it, then it gets a little personal.

We know Eli isn't perfect...apparently, so does everyone else...

1. Carnell Williams

The Rams will likely be without Steven Jackson, the franchise's best player for the past half decade, but Carnell showed that he is healthy and more than capable against the Eagles. Williams displayed the talent that garnered him the nickname "Cadillac," rushing for 91 yards on 19 carries and catching six balls for 49 yards. He's not nearly as explosive as Jackson, but with all of the Rams' injuries, he may very well be the focal point of their offense.

With five weeks remaining in the regular season, eleven of the sixteen NFC teams are still mathematically in the playoff hunt.

That includes three sub-.500 NFC West teams (St.Louis, Seattle and San Francisco) and the 5-6 Washington Redskins. The Redskins' chances are slim since they would have to win every game the rest of the season and hope for some divine intervention along the way to qualify for the post season.

The West winner will most likely be the only entrant into the NFC Playoffs from that bracket, so we will not include them in any of our league-wide scenarios going forward unless something dramatic occurs.

The Giants look to extend their streak of 11 straight road wins last season into this one, as they head to St. Louis to take on the Rams. In the New York Times, coach Tom Coughlin talks about why the Giants have been so successful on the road.

?The thing we rally around on the road is the fact that it?s us against them and the only support comes from our sideline and our group,? Coughlin said. ?To win on the road, you?ve got to be able to handle adversity. You have to have the resiliency to battle back.?
The current N.F.L. record for consecutive regular season road victories is 18, set by the San Francisco 49ers from 1988 to 1990.

Big Blue View points us to two articles in St. Louis Post-Dispatch that were very critical, and rightfully so, of the Rams opener where they were dismantled to the tune of 38-3 by Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles.

One article, written by Bernie Miklasz went so far as to ask if the players were trying to get their coach fired.

Unless the Rams respond with a passionate statement about their competitiveness on Sunday when the New York Giants come to The Ed, how much longer will head coach Scott Linehan be able to keep his job?
So there it is folks, the Rams are essentially playing to keep their coaches job. The Rams look awful but they should come out swinging after taking a walloping from the Eagles. They may look bad on paper but the Giants should be prepared to play a team that is looking to redeem themselves from outright embarrassment.
