After a much needed breakout performance, the Giants defense stepped up in Week 7, lead by second-year safety Landon Collins. After falling behind 0-10 early in the game, Collins scored the Giants' first TD on a 44-yard interception return. His second interception of the game set up the 1-yard touchdown by Rashad Jennings in the fourth quarter.
When Collins wasn't single handedly breaking up Keenum's pass attempts, he was making crucial tackles. He was all over the field today and proved to be the biggest playmaker throughout the game. T
he hard-hitting safety made strides after a dismal 2015 season and turned into one of the Giants' most valuable assets this year. Collins gave Twickenham Stadium something to remember and lead the team to a key victory.
Larry Donnell killed the Giants momentum early in the game with a fumble that set up the Rams' first TD. He set tone early in the first quarter as the Giants were driving down the field. Trying to get the offense going, Donnell dropped the ball, while trying to plow in for a first down. Donnell has been struggling lately, trying to do too much instead of focusing on the fundamentals.
The Giants were lead by plays from the secondary and after their second straight win, they can feel confident going into bye week with an improved 4-3 record.
