The National Football League is gracing Twickenham today, as the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams face off in the Cathedral of Rugby.

The game is highlighted by Giants star man Odell Beckham Jr, who has proven to be a bigger attraction in London than Big Ben, but it wasn't the New York wideout who opened up the scoring on the day.

That honour went to Tavon Austin of the Rams, who made a piece of history as the first man to ever score a touchdown at Twickenham. Scroll down to see the play.

With barely a few minutes gone in the first quarter of the contest, the Rams capitalised expertly on a Larry Donell fumble to open the scoring, with Case Keenum finding Austin in the end zone. Here it is...

Austin has speed to burn and he showed pretty much all of it off on the play, hitting the Giants secondary with a with a near perfect post route. Keenum managed to slot the football into him, and with less than four minutes gone in the first period, the Rams were up.

We will have to wait and see if the Rams can keep up the pressure that they have put on New York so far. At the time of writing, with LA up 10-0, head coach Jeff Fisher must surely be happy wth his side.

With the aforementioned Odell Beckham managing little more than a swing play for a loss, the Rams have done a good job of keeping the star man quiet.
