NFL’s most accurate passer shows the undefeated Rams no mercy

By James Hale

Drew Brees shows us why he is in the conversation for the NFL’s most valuable player award; after completing 69.4% of his passes, throwing for 346 and scoring 4 touchdowns against the best-rounded team in the NFL, the Los Angeles Rams. Before this game the Rams were the only team that were unmatched and undefeated. Until the game’s most efficient quarterback in the 99 year history of the NFL, Storms onto the field and beats the Rams 45-35.

In the first quarter, the Saints outscored the Rams with two crucial touchdowns by running back Alvin Kamara. One being an 11 yard run and the other being a 16 yard reception. However before the receiving touchdown, Todd Gurley scored an 8 yard run with 6.04 minutes left in the quarter. In the second quarter the Rams scored a 4 yard touchdown the scorer being Brandon Cooks, the former Saints and Patriots wide receiver. Then with 7 and a half minutes until halftime, it became a lopsided affair. The Saints piled up the touchdowns scoring 3; Tre’Quan Smith 4 Yard pass from Drew Brees, Benjamin Watson 13 Yard pass from Drew Brees and an Alvin Kamara 1 Yard Run to secure his 3rd touchdown of the day. Finally, to round off the quarter, the Rams kicked a 56 yard field goal to solidify the 3 points at the end of the 1st half to make the score 35-17.

In the third quarter, Sean McVay must have said something special and inspirational in the locker room at halftime, to galvanize the troops to score a touchdown and a field goal the only scores in the third. Malcolm Brown 18 Yard pass from Jared Goff and a Greg Zuerlein 34 Yard Field Goal to match the score of 35-27 Saints. In the fourth quarter, the saints blow their lopsided lead to a tied game; Cooper Kupp’s 41 Yard touchdown pass from Jared Goff, then Jared Goff Pass to Gerald Everett for Two-Point Conversion to tie the game at 35-35. However, the greatness and the veteran leadership of the all-time passing yards leader Drew Brees was too much for the Rams defensive lead by defensive player of the year candidate Aaron Donald, was not enough to offset the Saints. Wil Lutz’s’ 54 yard Field Goal to bring the score to 38-35. Drew Brees then put the icing on the cake by converting a game-long 72 yard touchdown to Michael Thomas.
