LONDON -- The New York Giants capitalized on four interceptions of Case Keenum to defeat the Los Angeles Rams 17-10 Sunday in the first NFL game played at Londons home of English rugby, a sold-out and raucous Twickenham Stadium. Black Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo Jersey .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 Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie easily picked off. Keenums intended target, Brian Quick, failed to get the quarterbacks audible and cut off his route early.Keenum, who finished 32 of 53 for 291 yards and one touchdown, has thrown an interception on the Rams final offensive play of the last three games. That likely will fuel debate on a potential quarterback change to overall No. 1 draft pick Jared Goff.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 Keenums throws. Ill make changes at receiver before I make a change at quarterback.The win kept the Giants (4-3) in good shape in the ultra-competitive NFC East, where no one has a losing record. The Rams (3-4) lost their third straight.The Giants entered Sunday with the worst turnover differential in the NFC at minus-10. Then tight end Larry Donnell coughed up the ball on the Giants 35, leading to the Rams lone touchdown, a 10-yard grab by Tavon Austin.But the Rams were unable to build on that early edge and instead hit the self-destruct button. Keenum threw two interceptions, both off high-sailing deflections, to safety Landon Collins, and two more in the end zone to cornerback Rodgers-Cromartie. RB Todd Gurley struggled, carrying 15 times for 57 yards, his longest run an 8-yarder.Collins returned his first pick 44 yards for a second-quarter touchdown, making several Rams miss tackles before he bowled over center Tim Barnes to draw the Giants even.I must have run at least 100 yards on that play, said a beaming Collins, who until Sunday had only one interception in his two-year career.Collins second pick set up the winning drive, which featured a 22-yard catch by Odell Beckman Jr. to the Rams 6. Rashad Jennings scored from the 1 for the Giants only offensive touchdown.Eli Manning had a pedestrian day, going 24 of 37 for 196 yards and no touchdowns. The Rams managed 20 first downs to the Giants 13.Manning said the pass rush and multiple coverage looks meant it was tough to get into a great rhythm and hit a bunch of big plays.Its not one that were necessarily going to put on our highlight tape of how were supposed to win games, but its a team game, Jennings said. The defense bailed us out.The Rams final two possessions ended in the end-zone interceptions by Rodgers-Cromartie, the pro-Giants crowd of more than 74,000 roaring their approval.HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE?Los Angeles was the home team, but officials struggled to whip up a pro-Rams environment at Twickenham, where the big-screen TVs advised Quiet please, offense at work when the Rams had the ball -- and the crowd kept up a deafening din during the Rams two doomed final drives.LOPSIDED STARTThe Giants took the field looking jet-lagged, Rams the savvy travelers. That perhaps reflected the fact Los Angeles chose to fly overnight from Detroit the previous Sunday for a full week in England, while the Giants did most of their preparations at home before arriving Friday in London.The Giants gained a single first down in the first quarter on an 11-yard completion to Sterling Shepard. The Rams, by contrast, controlled 11:36 of the first-quarter clock, gained seven first downs with a balanced attack, and scored on their first two drives to lead 10-0 with less than 10 minutes gone.GIANTS RUNNING WOESNew York struggled for a seventh straight week to move the ball on the ground and Giants finished with 36 yards rushing on 20 carries for a paltry 1.8 average.GIANTS KICKERNew Giants kicker Robbie Gould made a 29-yard field goal in his only attempt and converted two extra points. He replaced Josh Brown, who was placed on the NFLs commissioner exemption list after more information surfaced about his abusive behavior toward his then-wife.Gould, cut by the Bears in September, got the surprise recruitment call Thursday as he was taking his 3-year-old son swimming. Their first question: Did he have a valid passport?Getting a fresh start and being in a place like New York and playing for the Giants, as one of the charter franchises, is something special, he said.INJURY SCAREGiants kick returner Dwayne Harris suffered what looked like a serious injury when returning the final punt of the first half. He lay still on the ground for several minutes, was immobilized and carted off the field as teammates prayed. But he returned to field the first punt of the fourth quarter. Neither team reported any other serious injuries.---Associated Press reporter Zac Boyer contributed to this story.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Authentic Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Cheap Cristiano Ronaldo Jersey .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. http://www.cheapcristianoronaldojersey.com/ . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour. Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on Sunday. George Bailey delivered a glowing appraisal of David Warners leadership following Australias two-wicket win in Dambulla, in which Bailey had led the chase. It was Warners first international in charge, and though his batting continued to ail him, his attack proved penetrative in the defining first half of the match.Australias seamers took two early wickets, and though Dinesh Chandimal and Tillakaratne Dilshan put up a 73-run second wicket stand, the middle and lower order could not muster substantial partnerships. Sri Lanka were all out for 226 in the 50th over.Bailey has plenty of experience as a leader, having captained Australia in 57 limited-overs matches. He said Warner was a good leader because, among other things, he typified the kind of cricket Australia wish to play.I think Daveys a natural leader, Bailey said. Hes always been a leader in terms of the way he plays the game. A lot of the things we talk about as a team - that Darren Lehmann has always talked about - driving the game, playing the game aggressively, and taking the game on, youre talking about Davey Warner when you do that.The conversations that I was privy to when he was talking to the bowlers, he was really clear and direct. He keeps things simple and theyre all pretty good things to have as a skipper. We were taking wickets, so that always keeps you happy as a captain. We took most of our catches, so its a nice welcome for him. I think hes a really natural leader, I think it suits him.Bailey was among those seen in regular conversation with Warner through Sri Lankas innings, along with Matthew Wade and Aaron Finch. Warners ideas, he said, were instrumental in keeping Sri Lanka to a score which Australia felt was very gettable on the Dambulla surface.As much as anything, in my opinion, the on-field discussions are just so Davey can verbalise whats going on his head, Bailey said. I know that the times Ive captained, Id much rather have too many ideas coming at me than when no one is coming up at all, because thats normally the sign things arent going your way. Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus Jersey 2019. I dont think well come out with anything too radical. It was more just letting Davey talk through what his plans were, and they were pretty much always on the money.Australias chase had been floundering at 44 for 3 before Bailey took control of the innings. He put on 72 runs with Travis Head and a further 81 with Matthew Wade, on his way to 70 from 99 balls. In that knock, Bailey used the sweep and reverse sweep as liberally as any Australia batsman has done throughout the tour.Ive been practicing my sweep and reverse sweep, he said. You just need options here, dont you? There are some clever bowlers in that team and you need to be able to mix things up and change the field a little bit when you need to.I love the challenge of batting here. Its very different to playing in England. Its very different to playing at home. I find it a great thrill to be able to test yourself and to come up with new shots and to come up with different ways to combat the different things that are thrown at you.Bailey has had a better year with the bat in 2016, than he has had in either of the two previous calendar years. He has hit 520 runs at an average of 37.14 since January, and has contributed in each of his innings this series.I dont know what to put it down to - maybe Im just hitting my peak at the right age, Bailey said of his improved output this year. I just try to relax a bit more and enjoy it. I probably have a better balance off the field. I know what it feels like to be out of the team, or on the outer of the team. I know the worst-case scenario if I dont score runs is Im back to that feeling, so Im just trying to make sure I enjoy every second I can.
