Rams Get Clutch Win Against Saints

Time will tell, but the Rams 26-20 win over the Saints could be a season defining victory.  Going into the game the Rams were an untested 7-3 team.  Today they faced off against a Saints team that had just run off 8 wins in a row; against Drew Brees and Sean Payton who know how to win.  Brees is the kind of QB you want on your team when you’re down a couple scores in the 4th quarter.  On the other hand Jared Goff and Sean McVay are for the most part unknown commodities.

McVay and Goff showed a lot of guts while under pressure today.  McVay with his play calling and Goff with execution.  Up 10 points the Rams got the ball back with 7:55 remaining in the 4th.  The Rams of old would have called 3 running plays and then kicked the ball away.  Instead McVay called 6 passing plays which moved the ball,  created first downs, and ran the clock.  Of course in between passes RB Gurley did a good job of keeping the drive alive.

It’s these kinds of wins that build character and confidence.  Plus with this win the Rams are guaranteed to not have a losing season.  The Rams have put the NFC on notice.  The Rams are a bonafided playoff contender (of course we’ve got to get through those stinking Eagles…).  Go Rams!
