It was the day before Halloween and it certainly was not All Saints Day, but the New Orleans Saints football team spent Sunday afternoon in the NFL House of Shock as the once-winless St. Louis Rams put a scare into their visitor’s playoff hopes.
The Rams threw some tricks into the bag of plays and the city was treated to a stunning victorious weekend—starting with the Cardinals taking home the World Series championship, on Friday evening.
The New Orleans Saints went into St. Louis, flying high after clobbering their Super Bowl foe Indianapolis Colts. They left, bashed by the Rams who took a page out of winning from the World Champions Cardinals.
How and why? Rams corralled Drew Brees, who had a passer rating of 73.0, and was it not for a late touchdown drive, would have held him to less than 200 yards passing.
The St. Louis Rams playing for a city that was still sky high from the World Series win on Friday, showed that any NFL team can win and any team can lose on a Sunday.
This time, it was the Saints who took the hit, after clobbering the Indianapolis Colts 62-7 last week, came out on short stick falling to the once-winless Rams on this last Sunday in October 2011.

The media is in love with the “Occupy Wall Street” movement or as Ann Coulter famously called them, the “Flea Party.” This group is receiving plenty of media attention and like a virus is spreading to cities across America. Each protest site attracts left wing activists, homeless people and deviants in search of a cause. It is truly a noxious combination; a crazy, smelly mix of kooks.
In advance of the St. Louis Rams game, New Orleans head coach Sean Payton talked with the media on Thursday and discussed injuries to Mark Ingram, Jon Vilma, Chris Ivory and others.
During the interview, Payton also discussed the diversity of his receivers and the differences of skillsets of his running backs Ivory, Darren Spores, Pierre Thomas and Ingram:
