The Los Angeles Rams will be well rested and expected to be in full health for their October 17th street game in New York due to their 10-day layover after the 26-17 street win over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday October 7th.

For their opponent, the opposite is the case: they could do without three top offensive leaders.

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), quarterback Daniel Jones (concussion) and wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee) fell injured in their 44:20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

Of the three, Barkley suffered the worst injury seen on social media.

Barkley rolled his ankle below during this sequence:

Now on the morning of Monday October 11th, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network told Good Morning Football that Barkley likely has a high ankle sprain.

Jones uphold a hit from helmet to helmet during the 24-point loss. After that there was the sight of a wobbly Jones:

Jones walked with a concussion again when carted off the field. His game status for Sunday against the Rams is up in the air. However, nj.com’s Darryl Slater believes Mike Glennon will be behind the center instead of Jones.

Meanwhile, recipient Golladay – who was a former teammate of Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions from 2017-2020 – suffered his hyperextended knee injury in a collision with cornerback Trevon Diggs.

His knee injury contributes to a pile-up he has had since arriving in NYC: he tensed his hamstring during training camp, suffered a hip disorder and later a groin injury. Now the knee becomes the fourth injury.

Golladay didn’t have a single catch in losing to Dallas, bringing the Giants’ record down to 1-4 overall.

The Rams will have a record that is the opposite of the Giants’ current brand in the Meadowlands.

And they’re a big favorite for this non-divisional competition.

Los Angeles will be an amazing 10.5 favorite to top the G-Men at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. Draft Kings was one outlet that got the Rams popular, with DK writer David Fucillo writing on Oct. 11, “Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley both left the week five defeat with injuries and never returned last lines the Rams-Giants matchup week 6. In any case, this is a game that LA should win, regardless of who is available for New York and who is not. “

On Friday, however, Rams head coach Sean McVay decided to look past the Giants’ record during a video conference after Thursday night football with the LA media.

“I don’t care about the Giants record. They’re pretty competitive, ”said McVay. “You got a really big win against a great football team last weekend (over the New Orleans Saints in Week 4). But there are no disappointments in this league. And if you think they exist, then you will be humiliated quickly and that is simply the truth. “

The Rams are 2-0 under McVay against the Giants. Last year the Rams held G-Men 17-7. In 2017, the Rams averaged 41 points in the second and third quarters before beating New York 51-17.
