The biggest surprise on Sunday was the Saints losing to the Rams in St.Louis 31-21. It was a very bad loss for Drew Brees and the rest of the Saints.The Saints' defense was exposed once again and they could not stop Steven Jackson at all. Jackson had 159 yards and two TDs on the day.The offensive line was horrible for the Saints as they could not protect Brees at all. No Mark Ingram hurt New Orleans too as he was injured and the Saints' running backs only totaled 57 yards for the whole game.The Saints will face a tough Bucs' team next week at home. I would not be surprised if the Bucs upset the Saints again. They played a few weeks ago in Tampa and the Bucs won 26-20.The Eagles looked great after a bye week and destroyed the Cowboys 34-7. Eagles are now 3-4 and will face a talented Bears' team at home on Monday night.I expected the Chiefs to beat the Chargers last night at home but they were lucky they won the game in overtime. The Chargers should have won the game i...

They got beat down 27-10 by the Titans Sunday while St. Louis got its first win. Now that the Rams have Steven Jackson healthy [...]
I'm not going to spend much time writing an intro here. For lack of a more polite term, this was a complete &%#$show. If I could point to one reason for the epic failure of the offense, it would be horrendous play by the offensive line. The interior wasn't physical on passing plays, and the exterior pass blocked as bad as I've ever seen them do it. Chris Long...

Steven Jackson scored two touchdowns and had his first 100-yard rushing game in three seasons as the St. Louis Rams upset the New Orleans Saints 31-21 for their first win on Sunday. The win for the Rams (1-6) came two days after the St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series, with manager Tony La Russa and several of his players showing up to support the city's football team.
And then there were two winless teams. The Rams broke through by upsetting the Saints 31-21 as Steven Jackson turned in a vintage performance and Brandon Lloyd stepped up as well.
