With the St Louis Rams out of playoff contention, they could of just packed it in and just gave in. They didn’t. When the Saints at the end of the game became the vintage Saints everyone is use to, they bend but they did not break as they hang out for the 27-16 win against the Saints. This keeps the hopes for an 8-8 season still intact.
Player of the game:
133 yards on 28 carries and a huge touchdown run. He has become the feature back and with a healthy Sam Bradford, the Rams could be a huge contender in 2014.
Play(s) of the game:
The two big field goal blocks by the Rams set the tempo of the game. The first blocked field goal helped keep the Saints off the board going into the half and stalled their momentum. The second one shut the door on a Saints comeback. Special teams always make a difference in getting an upset.
The Rams will play the Buccaneers in the home finale next Sunday. If the Rams can get the win next week, then they travel to Seattle in the final game of the season. Seattle will be resting many of their starters and the Rams will be looking to end the season on a 3 game winning streak. Hopefully that momentum will get the Rams a new stadium deal to stay in St. Louis for decades to come.
