Saints vs Rams: 1st Look

The last time the Saints played in St. Louis and lost. I don’t think the Payton is going to let the team overlook this game, to be honest, if there is a gotcha game out of the remaining three games this would be it. The Saints are better off in most of the team categories, have playoff positioning to play for. The Rams have been officially eliminated from the playoffs and only have the “Spoiler” role left to play.

The problem is that Fisher is a very good coach and he is in the middle of rebuilding the Rams. Even with the losses they have suffered in the injury department, for the most part the Rams have been competitive all year long and Fisher won’t let them lay down.
