Ex-Bills receivers Robert Woods, Sammy Watkins go back-to-back for long TDs for Rams

Former Bills receivers Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins were both trending on Twitter early Sunday afternoon.

The reason: Long touchdowns in the span for 2:08 for the Los Angeles Rams against the New York Giants.

Facing third-and-33, the Rams ran a wide receiver screen to Woods, who turned it into a 53-yard touchdown. It was his first TD of the season. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the score marked the first TD when a team needed at least 33 yards on third down since Peerless Price in 2001 with the Bills.

Here is Woods' TD:

That was quickly followed by Watkins and Jared Goff connecting for a 67-yard touchdown. It was Watkins' third TD catch of the season; the other two came in a Thursday night game against San Francisco on Sept. 21.

The final score was 51-17 as the Giants fell to 1-7.

The Rams surpassed the 30-point mark for the fifth time this season. They scored 30 or more points just 5 times between 2014-16.

The 51 points allowed by the Giants represented the most they have given up in a home game since Sept. 19, 1999, when Washington scored 50.  The last time the Giants allowed 40 or more points in a game was in a 52-49 loss at New Orleans on Nov. 1, 2015.
