If you are reading this, I can make a quick judgement that you are a Rams fan. Well, fellow Rams fans? You earned this victory Monday by watching 7 straight regular season losses dating back to 2010′s excruciating finale. We watched as other bad teams gave great efforts and even upset good teams week after week, which is called the “Any Given Sunday” principle. The Rams never seemed to believe that on any given Sunday they could beat the team across from them. They rolled over to the Packers, Cowboys and Ravens, putting up very little resistance as those good football teams played pitch and catch with the Rams playing the role of the orange cones.
But, not this week. The Rams played inspired football, crucially did not get way behind the Saints early. They held the momentum at home until midway through the 4th quarter. When the worm began to turn and the Saints started to move the football and get touchdowns, Steven Jackson made sure his team did not fall apart as they have done in the past. The Rams defense was able to ice the game with a pick-6 touchdown with 3 minutes left in the game.
So, live it up today Rams fans. Watch NFL.com highlights online. Watch Sportscenter like a million times. Don’t be afraid to talk about the Rams at the water cooler this morning. The Rams are still 1-6, but yesterday was a huge upset, but a great win for the Rams as they head into the softer divisional part of their schedule.
