Notable Rams-Giants games through the years 

The 4-1 Rams visit the 1-4 Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., in a series that dates back to 1938.

Ahead of Sunday's contest (10 a.m. pacific time, FOX), takes a look at a few of the notable Rams-Giants matchups through the years.

This thriller of a contest was ultimately decided by two key plays: A 55-yard touchdown pass from Rams quarterback Jared Goff to wide receiver Cooper Kupp midway through the third quarter, then a diving interception by cornerback Darious Williams at their own 5-yard line on the final drive of the contest.

Goff finished 25 of 32 for 200 yards in addition to that touchdown to Kupp, while Kupp posted five receptions for 69 yards. The Rams defense, meanwhile, sacked Giants quarterback Daniel Jones five times – one each for defensive lineman Morgan Fox, defensive lineman Michael Brockers, outside linebacker Justin Hollins, outside linebacker Ogbo Okoronkwo and 0.5 each from defensive lineman Aaron Donald and outside linebacker Samson Ebukam.

Running back Greg Bell added 31 carries for 112 yards and one touchdown on the ground, also hauling in one of Everett's touchdown passes.

The Rams defense sacked Giants quarterback Phil Simms four times and also scored a pick-six via cornerback Jerry Gray.
