Giants Vs. Rams Score: Domenik Hixon Makes It Look Hard, Still Scores For Giants

Eli Manning found Domenik Hixon in the end zone from 22 yards out just before halftime, putting the Giants ahead 21-6. Hixon made it look a lot harder than it had to be, juggling the catch by tipping it to himself not once but twice before finally hauling it in while laying on his back for the score. I'd complement him on his concentration, but he probably could have hauled it in the first time. 


The funny thing is that Manning should have had a touchdown on the previous play -- he found Mario Manningham streaking along the sideline for a 31-yard reception. But like Hixon, Manningham bobbled the catch, eventually securing it but not before losing his footing and tumbling. Had he made the catch in stride, he had a clear path to the end zone and would have easily scored.

In the end, the result is the same: the Giants scored and enter halftime with a suddenly comfortable lead. But Manning's receivers aren't making this easy for him.
