The New York Giants have enough problems with turnovers when quarterback Eli Manning is throwing interceptions, they don’t need fumbles to make things worse.
But that’s exactly what happened to start Sunday’s early game between the Giants and Los Angeles Rams in London. On the first drive of the game, Manning hit tight end Larry Donnell for a short gain and Donnell coughed up the football, which was hastily scooped up by the Rams.
The Rams then went 35 yards in seven plays and scored a touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Case Keenum to Tavon Austin. That gave them an early 7-0 lead after the successful extra point.
New York has now committed a turnover in its last 16 games, the longest streak in the NFL, according to the broadcast on Sunday. Sitting at 3-3, their record isn’t going to improve if they can’t get better in the turnover department. The Rams are also 3-3 on the season going into Week 7.
