Two straight close calls against teams with losing records? Sounds like the New Orleans Saints needed a game against an NFC West team — well hello there, St. Louis Rams.
Saints QB Drew Brees has already thrown two scores to WR Marques Colston, a five-yarder halfway through the first and a 17-yarder just before the second. Brees is already 13 of 15 for 97 yards, putting him on pace to end up with a season-high 60, though he won’t have much reason to throw 60 times if the Rams don’t start scoring. His previous season high was 56, so this is all actually worth mentioning. He’s also thrown a touchdown in every game this season, with multiple scores in 10.
After not scoring through week six, Colston now has seven touchdowns in his last seven games.
