Rams had been holding Cheap NFL Jerseys

Drew Brees completed 28 of 36 passes for 319 yards and four touchdowns, and Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower shredded a Rams’ rush defense for 209 yards on the ground. The Rams had been holding opponents to just 102.6 rushing yards a game. But the billboard signal that this was something out of the ordinary came midway through the fourth quarter, with the Saints leading 42-21. On third-and-3 from midfield, Brees threw a backwards lateral to wide receiver Willie Snead, a high school quarterback, who then wheeled and threw a 50-yard strike across the field to wide open running back Tim Hightower. That made it 49-21 with 1:15 left. It was the first time since Payton took over the Saints in 2006 that a non-quarterback — he’s had Brees, after all — threw a touchdown pass for New Orleans. “Listen, I’m not going to completely avoid the fact that Cheap NFL Jerseys Gregg Williams is their defensive coordinator and there’s a history there,” Brees said. “The bottom line is he is one of the better defensive coordinators in the league. The last four games they’ve allowed less than 17 points in each game. We knew the challenge coming in as an offense. “When you’re playing against these types of defenses, you have to do your best and be on point. We knew we had our challenge, but we rose to the occasion.” Payton said the Snead-to-Hightower connection was nothing more nefarious than exploiting the Rams’ defensive “tendencies.” “It had been installed earlier in the week and just Cheap Jerseys Wholesale came up at the right time,” Payton said. “I thought Tim did a good job chasing it down. We had that play seven or eight years ago, and every time we wanted to run it at practice, (wide receiver Marques) Colston would go to the restroom; he wasn’t really excited about it. He had a good arm, but he wasn’t fired up about it. Lance (Moore) tried it one year and about three different guys intercepted it (in practice). We cleaned up some of the things we were doing and we got the right look.” Rams coach Jeff Fisher didn’t directly answer what he thought of the play call. “I would expect nothing other than that,” Fisher said. “They have a very explosive offense and an outstanding quarterback. We knew that going into the game. … When you’re talking about 555 yards of total offense and 49 points, that’s not going to win football games. Unfortunately, our defense, which we expect to keep us is football games, could not do it today.”
