What an absolutely outstanding game from the St. Louis Rams, upsetting the San Diego Chargers, 9-point favorites, with a 20-17 win. 

Credit the fans a little here too. The Dome was rocking; that was plain even through the television speakers. And that's a really great sign, because after all turnarounds are for the fans too. 

On the field and on the sidelines, there was plenty of credit due as the Rams pulled together in a total team effort to make the upset look preordained. People are divided on who exactly to give the game ball to, splitting it between a stellar defensive performance and Steven Jackson. 

Enjoy victory Monday. Take a gander at some great photos from the game.
