The St. Louis Rams got their first win of the season yesterday against the mighty New Orleans Saints. Maybe the Rams were motivated after the St. Louis Cardinals won the 2011 World Series. Maybe the Saints just took the winless Rams for granted. Whatever it was, St. Louis looked like a real solid NFL team. Seriously. The defense sacked New Orleans QB Drew Brees six times. The offense scored four touchdowns and even converted on fourth down – twice. The outcome was a 31 – 21 whipping that made St. Louis cry for joy and New Orleans cry for mercy.
The saying is, “anything can happen on any given Sunday.” The Rams are at the bottom of the league. They drafted QB Sam Bradford with their first pick last year. He is supposed to be the bright star in their future, but just like the end of his college days he is out with an injury. New Orleans on the other hand is leading the NFC South with a great veteran quarterback. They won the Super Bowl in 2010. They are one of the elite groups in the NFL. The Rams taking out the Saints, explains the point of the saying.
There are two winless teams left in the league. The Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins. The Colts will host the Atlanta Falcons next week while the Dolphins will travel to play the Kansas City Chiefs. Let’s see if they can finally get a game in the win column.
