The St. Louis Rams are just pulled off the upset of the season, knocking off the New Orleans Saints by a score of 31-21.  The Rams scored on a pair of touchdown runs from Steven Jackson and a touchdown pass from Feeley to Brandon Lloyd.

The nail in the coffin was a pick-six by Rams' safety Darian Stewart.

The Saints meanwhile, were shut down by the Rams' defense in the first half.  The Saints finally scored on a defensive touchdown on a fumble recovery late in the third quarter.  Drew Brees finally led the Saints on a scoring drive, capped off by Pierre Thomas' three yard touchdown run. 

In garbage time, Brees tossed a short touchdown pass to Lance Moore for the final margin.  The Rams' defense recorded six sacks on the day, led by defensive end Chris Long, who got to Brees three times.  It was an incredible effort by the Rams' defense considering the Saints' offense put up 62 points against the Indianapolis Colts last week.

SCORE: RAMS 31, SAINTS 21
