Eli Manning Interception Creates St. Louis Rams Field Goal

The St. Louis Rams’ defense bent but manages to break the New York Giants in Eli Manning’s first drive of Week 2’s Monday Night Football matchup, getting pushed downfield before free-agent pickup Quintin Mikell invaded a route for a clean interception. The Rams offense got down to the goal line—thanks to a beautiful pass from Sam Bradford that led to a beautiful catch from Danario Alexander—before settling for a field goal, picking up an early 3-0 lead.

Mikell was strong in the Rams’ Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles as well, picking up a sack and an interception; in his career, which he began as an undrafted free agent with the Eagles, he has 11 interceptions and five sacks. For Eli Manning it’s his second interception of the season, a year after leading the NFL with 25; his 114 in his career are seventh among active quarterbacks.

The Rams will need to take advantage of Manning’s propensity for making mistakes if they’re to stopper the Giants’ offense.
