The Los Angeles Rams will return to SoFi Stadium after a two-game East Coast road swing to face the struggling New York Giants on Sunday. These two teams last met back on Nov. 5, 2017, at MetLife Stadium, where the Rams blew out the Giants 51-17.
It was clear that Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offense was not in sync through much of the team's 34-23 Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
