Wk 10 - Saints 28 vs Rams 7 - Saints Break 3 Game Losing Streak SAINTS FINALLY PICK UP A WIN - BREAK 3 GAME LOSING STREAK St. Louis Savage Mason Reporting The New Orleans Saints (4-5) came to St. Louis to face a struggling St. Louis Rams (1-8) team with another new owner and a serious qb issue. Saints themselves have done nothing but struggled lately and this would be a game that was needed by both teams. Saints would win the toss and defer to the 2nd half. Rams wouldn't do much their first drive and would be forced to punt. Saints would get things rolling with a nice mixture of a running game and passing game. Saints running game has been horrible and practically none existent this year, but they new this would be something to focus on vs the Rams. Saints would stall out on the 1/2 yard line and be forced to take the fg. Saints 3-0. Saints would control pretty much the whole first half, but the Rams were hanging in there with some forced fumbles on the Saints. 2 nice saints drives were killed by fumbles that were lost to the Rams. Saints would kick another fg in the 2nd quarter to take a 6-0 lead. As time would be expiring before half the Rams got a great drive going. On a 3rd down and goal call, Rams QB Quinn would be hit and Saints cb Rolle would pick it off and return it 102 yards for the game turning around td as nothing but zeros were left on the clock. Saints 13-0. Highlight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7c3Jd0VDSs 2nd half would be all saints from the get-go. Saints would take the opening drive and hit a huge trick play with a 54 yard flee flicker from Brees to Henderson. Henderson would make a great grab, break a tackle, dance the sideline, and a Rams Safety would take a bad angle and Henderson would find the endzone. After a 2 pt conversion Saints took a 21-0 lead. Highlight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjpO8L9AOV8 In comes Mark Buldger for the Rams and a nice drive developed. Rams would punch it in on a 2 yrd pass to Colston to get on the board. 21-7 Saints. Saints would put it away though after a few nice runs by westbrook, who had a monster game of 20 plus carries and 140 plus yards, the saints would score on a 3 yard pass from brees to Edwards - his first as a saint. 28-7. Saints would put the game away with some 4th down stops and some int's, but would elect to just kneel the ball away and punt the ball away and not score any more. Late in the game Saints cb Washington would read a screen from Bulger and pick it off, but elect to just be tackled and call it a game. Highlight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw-KuL_MMMs Saints picked up a much needed win and look to get their game back together and make a run for the OMFL Wildcard. Next week is another must win game as the Saints travel, again, to the Bucs for a divisional rival game. Player of the game: B. Westbrook- RB (EAWebsite is down for me) Westbrook had a huge game with a td, a few catchs, and 20 plus runs for 140 plus yards. Westbrook has not had a good season and has also been getting hurt a ton (out of the game 3 times this game), but really had a great game today. We will need more of these to make a run for the OMFL Wildcard.
