This week, they were helping the Rams win a game to improve to 4-6-1.
Jenkins had a pair of interception returns for touchdowns, and Givens caught a third-quarter touchdown while helped the Rams pull away during a 28-17 win over the Cardinals. Givens finished with five catches for 115 yards, giving them a legitimate target other than the ailing Danny Amendola (one catch for 38 yards).
Along with Steven Jackson’s 24-carry, 139-yard game, the Rams pulled away with 17 unanswered points in the second half to cruise to a win after a nervy first half. It was their first win since beating the Cardinals in Week Four.
They play good defense, have one of the game’s best receivers and a serviceable running game, but no quarterback. While the offensive line isn’t to the caliber he’s working behind in Denver, a quarterback of Manning’s caliber would have the Cards in the thick of the playoff race instead of 4-7 (with seven straight losses).
