Stil basking in the celebration of the St. Louis Rams upset win over the New Orleans Saints? Good. You deserve it. This season has been just as tough for fans as it has anyone. After watching six ugly losses to start a season in which the Rams were expected to compete for the NFC West title, yesterday's win finally gave the long suffering Rams fans something to cheer about, a big win over a heavily favored opponent. There isn't a better way to start your week.

It led to some heated moments on the sidelines as guard Carl Nicks got into a shouting match with OL coach Aaron Kromer. The Saints line allowed six sacks and all kinds of pressure as the Rams defense dominated them for 60 straight minutes. You'd meltdown too.

Rams avoid injuries in winHere's a major victory in and of itself: the Rams came away from their win over the Saints with no major injuries. Amazing. Last week, they lost two players to concussions and another two starters to various injuries.

Rams Shocker - Jeff at Rams Gab looks back on the game. He sums it up with a nice slice of truth: "every win in the NFL is a good win...this was a fantastic win."
