SAINTS BEAT UNDEFEATED RAMS 45 TO 35………

I was looking for the Saints to get revenge for my Packers loss to the Rams and they did!!!!! It was an unbelievable game in a nearly packed Superdome. The experts predicted an 80 point game and it ended up being an 80 point game. One of the more interesting highlights was when Thomas caught a  72-yard touchdown reception and then celebrated with a cellphone, he had hidden on the goal post padding, in a throwback to another famous New Orleans play by Joe Horn in 2003, and the  Saints handed the Los Angeles Rams their first loss of the season. “I paid a tribute to him, tried to get the crowd going a little bit more, set the tone, have fun out there, giving people a show,” said Thomas,  “You got to have fun. All these guys just catching touchdowns and celebrating with each other, having fun, getting the crowd involved. I felt like I had an opportunity to make it happen.I loved the celebration myself, and I think it was the perfect time when I did it.We love our fans and we always want to bring them back great memories.” Like Horn, Thomas was penalized, but the Rams never threatened again.

Drew Brees passed for 346 yards and four touchdowns in New Orleans’ seventh straight win, and Thomas finished with a club-record 211 yards receiving.

 

P.J. Williams, who forced a fumble and had an interception for a touchdown in New Orleans’ previous victory at Minnesota, broke up a fourth-down pass intended for Brandin Cooks, virtually sealing the result. The former Saints receiver, who caught six passes for 114 yards and a TD, fell to his knees in frustration.

Kamara scored three times, all in the first half,twice on runs and once on a 16-yard catch-and-run.

Rams defensive players criticized themselves for poor tackling, particularly on Kamara, who gained 116 yards from scrimmage. But coach Sean McVay sought to put the season’s lone loss in a positive light.”We’re good. We love it. You find out about yourself when you have a little bit of adversity,” McVay said. “I know that everybody in that locker room is going to respond the right way. Sometimes setbacks can be setups for comebacks — and that’s the way we look at it.”

Previous to the game I was invited to a “pep-rally” in Gulf Port MS hosted by Hancock/Whitney Bank. It was a great event with the Saints mascot Gumbo and the Saintsations in attendance. There was a drawing and some lucky winners received autographed items, tickets, and sideline passes.

On game day at Champion Square  we were entertained by the Marine Corps Band. They were not what I expected, playing country and rock. Guess Marines can have fun too…….

It looks like this may be the Saints year folks!
