Giants Players Fake Injuries Against Rams On Monday Night Football

The New York Giants beat Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football and they were aided in doing so with an long-time tactic -- faking injuries.

With Bradford and the Rams marching down the field with a no-huddle offense in the first quarter, a couple of Giants players -- Deon Grant and Jacquian Williams -- clearly flopped on the field, faking injuries, in order to stop the clock.

Here's the video, where it's pretty obvious:


The Rams appeared to be en route to a touchdown but when the Giants went down they were able to get the right personnel on the field and held the Rams to a field goal. The final score was 28-16 so an extra four points would have made it a one-score game. 

As Pro Football Talk points out, the league is in a tough place during the game because they can't reasonably ask the refs to determine whether a player is faking an injury. The league can look over what happened and determine their own punishment if they do determine that, indeed, the Giants faked injuries.
