East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - Michael Boley never stopped playing on a down the Rams may have thought was over. The result -- a 65-yard fumble return to the end zone. Boley's score and a pair of Eli Manning touchdown passes boosted the Giants to a 28-16 win over the St. Louis Rams Monday night. Sam Bradford drove the Rams into field-goal range, but when his behind-the- line-of-scrimmage pass to Cadillac Williams was dropped, Boley alertly picked up the loose ball and rumbled down the sideline to give the Giants a 14-6 lead with 10:58 left in the first half. Manning completed 18-of-29 passes for 200 yards and was picked off once. Brandon Jacobs rushed for 50 yards and a score, but the win may have been costly for the Giants (1-1), as wide receivers Mario Manningham and Domenik Hixon both left with injuries. Manningham suffered a concussion, while Hixon was hurt while making a juggling catch in the end zone for a 22-yard score with 21 seconds left in the second quarter. Bradford ended 22-of-46 for 331 yards with a TD. That went to Danario Alexander, who caught three balls for 122 yards. The Rams (0-2) played without running back Steven Jackson, who strained the quadriceps in his right leg during a season-opening loss to the Eagles.
