St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Odell Beckham Jr. put on a show once again, amassing 148 yards and two touchdowns on eight catches to help the New York Giants record a 37-27 win over the St. Louis Rams. New Yorks third straight victory featured another jaw-dropping performance by the rookie sensation, who followed up an 11-reception, 130-yard effort at Tennessee in Week 14 with last Sundays 12-grab, 143-yard, three-touchdown display against Washington. Beckham wasnt the only Giant to put up big numbers on a day in which New York (6-9) piled up a season-best 514 yards. Eli Manning threw for 391 yards and three touchdowns while completing 25-of-32 attempts, Rueben Randle caught six passes for 132 yards and a touchdown and Andre Williams added 110 rushing yards on 26 carries. St. Louis (6-9) hadnt allowed a touchdown in any of its previous three games, having yielded only 12 points during that stretch. Shaun Hill hit on 24-of-32 throws for 290 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for the Rams. Kenny Britt finished with 103 yards on nine catches, while Tre Mason had 76 yards and a touchdown on 13 rushes in the loss. The Giants came out strong, putting St. Louis in a 10-0 hole before the Rams offense even stepped onto the field. A 49-yard connection from Manning to Randle on the games opening drive led to Josh Browns 29-yard field goal, and New York recovered a fumble from Benny Cunningham on the resulting kickoff at the opposing 21-yard line. The turnover led to Beckhams 9-yard touchdown catch on a busted coverage midway through the first quarter. St. Louis got on the board via Greg Zuerleins 51-yard field goal on the subsequent series, set up in part by Browns unnecessary roughness penalty on the ensuing kickoff that started the Rams in New York territory. Brown answered with a 37-yard make early in the second quarter, with Larry Donnells 23-yard catch that was initially ruled incomplete but overturned on a challenge, placing the Giants in range for the kick. New York increased the margin to 20-3 by churning out 80 yards in 10 plays on its next possession. Orleans Darkwa, who forced Cunninghams special-teams fumble earlier, capped the sequence with a darting 12-yard run for his first career touchdown. The Rams responded by marching 74 yards in just five plays, with Britts acrobatic 27-yard sideline catch and a long defensive pass interference penalty on the Giants Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie preceding Masons 10-yard run into the end zone that gave St. Louis some needed momentum with 2:18 left in the half. Hill skillfully executed a two-minute drive culminating in Zuerleins 20-yard field goal to bring the Rams within 20-13 at the break, but the Giants scored touchdowns on their first two possessions of the third quarter to create some more distance. Williams ripped off a 45-yard run deep into St. Louis territory on the first of those treks, and Manning teamed up with Randle for a 7-yard touchdown four plays later. Hill then went 6-for-6 in engineering a 10-play, 90-yard jaunt he finished with a 23-yard strike to Lance Kendricks late in the third quarter. However, Beckham blew past the St. Louis secondary less than a minute afterward, and Manning hit the rookie in stride for an 80-yard touchdown that put New York up by a 34-20 count. Brown tacked on a 52-yard field goal with 8:29 remaining, ending a drive that was extended by an offsides penalty on the Rams with the Giants punting. Hills 47-yard delivery to a wide-open Chris Givens pulled St. Louis within 37-27 with under four minutes left, but he lost a fumble on a sack by Kerry Winn with 1:53 to go and New York ran out the remaining time.

. The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive.DAVIE, Fla. - With the strain of a costly loss showing, Miami Dolphins coaches said they have a good relationship with their players, even the one who yelled at Joe Philbin on the sideline during the defeat.Defensive tackle Jared Odrick kind of snapped when he angrily confronted Philbin in the closing minutes of the Dolphins loss to the Baltimore Ravens, defensive co-ordinator Kevin Coyle said Monday. But Coyle said the outburst didnt signal an underlying problem between Odrick and the coaching staff.I think its a good relationship, as it is with every guy on this team, Coyle said. I feel very strongly about that. I think thats one of the strengths of this program.Offensive co-ordinator Bill Lazor agreed.Its a reflection on Joe Philbin, the kind of professional atmosphere we have, Lazor said. Im very comfortable with how our players are on game day, even when they get excited, whether it be because they want the ball more or whatever reason. Weve got players here that I feel can talk to me, and that I can speak with. Its a very professional atmosphere.Camaraderie will be tested in the wake of Sundays 28-13 loss to Baltimore, which could keep the Dolphins (7-6) out of the playoffs for the sixth consecutive year. Any finish short of the post-season would leave Philbins job in jeopardy after three seasons as Miamis head coach.The Dolphins went into last weekend with an edge in the race for the final AFC wild-card berth, but now they might be left out even if they win their final three games. Ravens coach John Harbaugh predicted such a sweep.This is a very good football team that we played, Harbaugh said. This team will probably win out.Philbin will like the sound of that, and he acknowledged therres no more margin for error, beginning Sunday at AFC East leader New England.ddddddddddddBut Philbin expects his team to bounce back from the latest loss.I have a lot of faith and confidence in these guys, he said. Weve got a huge challenge this week going up to New England. I told them in the locker room, were going to find out a lot this week.Injuries are taking a toll, with safety Louis Delmas joining the list when he suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday. The Ravens feasted on replacements, including R.J. Stanford at cornerback and Dallas Thomas at right tackle.The defence has allowed 661 yards rushing over the past three games while twice blowing double-digit leads. The offence has scored one touchdown each of the past two weeks, and with pass protection shaky, Ryan Tannehill has stopped trying to throw downfield.But Philbin said hes confident his players still have faith in the coaching staff and game plan because of the way they conduct themselves every single day, the way theyve gone out and competed every single week. I absolutely believe that.Odrick attributed his outburst to the emotions of the moment. Coyle agreed, but didnt endorse his linemans behaviour.There is a fine line, Coyle said. Football is an emotional game. You want guys that play with passion. But I think there is a professionalism that everybody has to have, players and coaches alike. You try to keep your composure, because outbreaks of emotion generally dont tend to benefit the team. It can be a distraction. So I think thats something everybody needs to be careful of.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org
