Giants...41 Rams...13

September 15, 2008|From the Associated Press

ST. LOUIS -- A 97-yard drive put the New York offense in gear. Another stifling effort from a big-play defense led by Justin Tuck made much of the scoring window dressing in the Giants' 12th straight road victory, including their Super Bowl win last February.

Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes and the Giants sacked Marc Bulger six times in a 41-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams. The Rams (0-2) came up with another dud in their home opener, which also served as a tribute to their late owner Georgia Frontiere.

Tuck's 41-yard interception return in the fourth quarter secured the victory, and he added a pair of sacks. Fred Robbins also had two sacks for the Giants (2-0).

Quoteworthy: "Our quarterback can't be a pinata. We've got to give him time." -- Randy McMichael, Rams tight end
