The New Orleans Saints (6-1) will host the undefeated Los Angeles Rams (8-0) in the Superdome in Week 9. With a game that has major playoff and seeding implications, it’s imperative that both teams are that their best.
And it appears, for the most part, both teams are on the right track — though we were informed yesterday that Saints’ rookie pass rusher Marcus Davenport will be out for about a month, and will not be available this weekend.
