Drew Brees had been all but unstoppable for the Saints this season. Who knew the St. Louis Rams would be the team to stop him?

The Rams’ defense got pressure in Brees’s face all day and frustrated him into costly mistakes as St. Louis pulled off one of the most surprising upsets of this NFL season, beating the Saints 31-21.

Brees’s game-clinching mistake was a pass into coverage that Rams defensive back Darian Stewart intercepted and ran back 27 yards for a touchdown, giving the Rams a 31-14 lead with three minutes left in the fourth quarter. That sealed an uncharacteristically lousy game for the Saints’ offense, and it changed the way we’ll think about both teams going forward.

For the Rams, their first win of the season means they’re no longer among the front runners for the first overall pick in the draft — the winless Colts and winless Dolphins will duke it out for that honor.

For the Saints, it’s now clear that this high-powered offense can be stopped, especially when the front four can get pressure on Brees. Rams defensive end Chris Long frustrated Brees all day and sacked him three times, and you can bet every team that plays the Saints the rest of the year will be looking to get the same kind of pressure on Brees.

Chris Long should be arrested after that performance.

Someone needs to tell Brees that Graham is good, but not 'throw into quadrupal-coverage good'. We have other playmakers at WR and that is getting old.
