On paper, the Los Angeles Rams realized Sunday's matchup against the New York Giants seemed like it would work to their advantage when looking at how the two teams compared on paper. Last November, they scored a total of 50 points in four games. But as always, here are five takeaways from the Rams most recent win against the Giants to help earn their fifth win in six games.

Big Blue hasn't scored 30 or more points since a Week 17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015. Less than three minutes into the first quarter, Aaron Donald broke into the Giants' backfield, sacked Manning and forced a fumble that the Rams recovered near midfield. Four plays later, the Rams scored the game's first touchdown.

NOTES: Giants QB Eli Manning became the seventh player in National Football League history to pass for 50,000 yards, joining Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Tom Brady, Dan Marino, John Elway and Drew Brees.

Early in the second quarter, the Giants reached midfield again, trailing 10-7, but rookie running back Wayne Gallman was stripped by linebacker Alex Ogletree.

The conversation moved on to other topics and Papadopoulos did not leave a "lasting impression" with Sessions, the source said. Page interacted with Sessions because the then-Alabama senator was leading the national security team for the Trump campaign.

The Rams, after a series of terrible penalties, faced a 3rd-and-33 play from their own 48. And yet, a screen pass from Jared Goff turned L.A. wideout Robert Woods into a hot knife, and the Giants' defense just melted.

Goff threw three touchdowns in the first half, finishing with 311 yards passing in arguably his best game as a pro.

The Rams took the lead for good with 14:55 left in the second quarter on Greg Zuerlein's first of two field goals in the quarter, a 27-yarder.

The Giants managed a fourth-quarter touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Manning to tight end Evan Engram to make it 48-17.
