NFL Picks And Predictions Week 8: Saints Vs. Rams

Can the New Orleans Saints score another 60 points against the hapless St. Louis Rams this week?

All the New Orleans Saints did last week was score 62 points in a scrimmage with the Colts in prime time last week. It was the third time in NFL history a team has topped the 60-point mark. Facing the St. Louis Rams, who made DeMarco Murray look like Emmitt Smith last week, people are already asking if the Saints can do it again this week. 

Vinnie Iyer at the Sporting News predicts that the Saints will come close, scoring 55 points in another blowout. 

The Saints scored 62 points last week, which is more than St. Louis has all season. So it probably won't take much more than a touchdown to secure this one in a dome right up the Mississippi from the Saints' home. It's impossible for the Rams' secondary to slow down any of Drew Brees' receivers, and they will be equally burned by the speed of Darren Sproles out of the backfield. The scoreboard operator will busy again when Brees is on the field.

Oddly enough, the ESPN panel has one holdout picking the Rams to win the game.
