Keenum’s Four Picks Do In Rams; Fall to Giants in London 17-10

Los Angeles Rams v New York Giants

The Giants capitalized on four interceptions of Case Keenum to defeat the Los Angeles Rams 17-10 Sunday in the first NFL game played at London’s home 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 Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie easily picked off. Keenum’s intended target, Brian Quick, failed to get the quarterback’s 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.

Rams Can’t Finish in Detroit; Fall to the Lions 31-28

Los Angeles Rams v Detroit Lions

Matt Prater made a tiebreaking, 34-yard field goal with 1:29 left and Rafael Bush followed with a victory-sealing interception two plays later, giving the Lions a 31-28 win over the Rams on Sunday.

The Lions (3-3) have won two straight games with Prater making the winning kick and a defensive back following up with an interception on the ensuing possession. Last week, Prater’s kick and Darius Slay’s interception gave Detroit a win over previously unbeaten Philadelphia.

The Rams (3-3) have lost two straight.

Case Keenum completed a Rams-record 20 straight passes, but couldn’t connect with Lance Kendricks on the long throw that Bush stepped in front of near midfield. Keenum finished 27 of 32 for 321 yards with three touchdowns — two to Kenny Britt, one to Kendricks — and an interception.
