Saints vs. Rams: Week 12 Live Game Thread

Can the Saints overcome the loss of both their starting cornerbacks and pick up their 9th straight victory of 2017? Those pesky Rams stand in their way.

The New Orleans Saints (8-2) enter Week 12 looking to keep their winning streak alive, but they’ll have an extremely tough test against the Los Angeles Rams (7-3). The Saints are down their two starting cornerbacks, Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley, but are getting A.J. Klein and Kenny Vaccaro back for the defense. Needless to say, the Drew Brees-led offense figures to be the way to another win in this matchup, but we know the Saints have surprised us before.

Sunday will mark the 74th time these two franchises have faced off, which includes the one postseason game from that epic Wild Card matchup in 2000. The Rams hold a 40-33 advantage over the Saints, dating back to 1967. Sean Payton is just 1-2 against the Rams, with the lone victory coming back in 2009. Whatever it is, playing on the road against this team always leaves an unsettling feeling.
