Giants 17, Rams 10

Giants rock old rugby stadium

LONDON — The Giants capitalized on four interceptions of Case Keenum to defeat the Rams in the first NFL game played at a bastion of English rugby, a sold-out and raucous Twickenham Stadium.

Keenum, coming off the best start of his career, had the Rams at the Giants' 15-yard line with 50 seconds left when he lobbed a pass in the left corner of the end zone that cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie easily picked off. Intended target Brian Quick failed to pick up an audible and cut off his route early.

Keenum has thrown an interception on the Rams' final offensive play of the past three games. That likely will fuel debate on a potential quarterback change to overall No. 1 draft pick Jared Goff.

Coach Jeff Fisher said he had no intention of switching quarterbacks during the bye week.

"The windows are tight and the throws have to be more precise," Fisher said of Keenum's throws. "I'll make changes at receiver before I make a change at quarterback."

The Giants entered with the worst turnover differential in the NFC at minus-10. Then tight end Larry Donnell fumbled on the Giants 35, leading to the Rams' lone touchdown, a 10-yard grab by Tavon Austin.
