When looking at this week’s NFL schedule, the match-up between the 4-6 Saints and 4-6 Rams probably didn’t jump off the page at you as a must watch contest. That’s why they play the games. The Rams and Saints exploded into an offensive fireworks display with the two teams combining for 49 points in the first half.
On the opening drive of the second half, Saints quarterback Drew Brees found his running back Mark Ingram on a screen pass on 3rd-and-17 and Ingram went literally untouched into the end zone.
That 21-yard reception is part of what has become a huge day for Ingram as the back has 123 yards and one touchdown on the ground to go with the receiving touchdown and the game isn’t even through the third quarter yet. Not the best display of defense by either team in this game, but, it’s certainly proved to be much more entertaining than it originally looked on paper.
