NFL Preview: New Orleans Saints vs St. Louis Rams
NFL Week 8: Saints @ Rams
Sun. Oct. 30, 2011 1 p.m. EST
Last week the New Orleans Saints absolutely blew up offensively with 62 points and five touchdowns passes from superstar quarterback Drew Brees against the winless Indianapolis Colts. Not only was this performance impressive by the Saints, but Brees’ numbers were incredible as he threw more touchdown passes (5) than he did incompletions (4).
In Week 8, the Saints could be on the verge of another offensive explosion as they will face off against another winless team in the St. Louis Rams. It could be argued that the Rams are better defensive team in comparison to the Colts as they were able to contain the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers just 24 points recently, but that probably won’t make a difference against the Saints who are team that is functioning like a well-oiled machine right now.
There is no doubt that the New Orleans Saints are playoff bound this season as they seem to have the edge in the NFC South right now, but they will need to keep their foot on the gas pedal with teams like the Atlanta Falcons and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers breathing down their necks.
As of right now, the New Orleans Saints are favored to get another big win in Week 8 with a -14 point spread in their favor. Even though spreads this large make most people nervous, the Saints are the one team in the league besides the Packers that are capable of covering this spread every single week.
Predictions for Saints vs Rams? Take the Saints at -14.
