Saints Vs. Rams: St. Louis Hopes To Actually, You Know, Win A Game

The St. Louis Rams are hosting the New Orleans Saints this weekend as they hope to avoid their seventh consecutive defeat.

At the beginning of this season, optimism ran rampant in St. Louis regarding their Rams. They thought had the potential franchise quarterback and an elite running back. They thought they had added enough weapons to let their young QB thrive. They thought had an improving defense and continuity in the coaching staff. Now they're 0-6, and all one can do is wonder what the heck just happened over the past few weeks.

On Sunday, the Rams are hosting the New Orleans Saints at home as they hope to avoid a seventh consecutive loss. If last Sunday night's Saints-Colts game is to be any indication, though, the Saints are probably licking their lips at the chance to pound another opponent into submission. The 62-7 victory over Indianapolis set numerous New Orleans records, including most points scored and largest margin of victory.

If the Rams want to have even a remote chance of knocking off the Saints, they'll probably need quarterback Sam Bradford, though. After missing last week's game with a high ankle sprain, it's still unclear whether or not he's going to play against the Saints this Sunday. If he doesn't and the Rams are forced to go with A.J. Feeley once again, it shouldn't surprise anyone if the Saints waltz their way to another blowout victory against a beleaguered, struggling team.

The Rams have lost just one game this season, a 17-10 defeat to Washington in Week 4, by less than 12 points. They've been outscored a combined 58-10 over the past two weeks.
