The New Orleans Saints are within arm’s length of a playoff berth but need a road win against the St. Louis Rams to complete the task in week 15. New Orleans must overcome season-long road issues when we watch Saints vs Rams online free live streaming on Fox by following the links offered below.
The Saints (10-3) have put forth up-and-down performances over the past two weeks. If they win today they will clinch an NFC playoff spot regardless of what any other teams do. They can still technically lose and clinch if several complicated scenarios play out, but the Saints would just assume win today, play well on the road and locked up a playoff berth on their own terms.
Two weeks ago the Saints played the Seahawks in what was supposed to be a close game between the top two teams in the NFC. Instead the Seahawks blew the Saints out 34-7 and questions began to arise about the Saints ability to play away from the friendly confines of their home stadium. They returned home last week and handily beat the Panthers to snap their eight-game win streak 31-13, but now venture out again on the road.
The scoring differential between home and road games for the Saints is quite dramatic. At home Drew Brees and his offense average 32.9 points per game, just about good enough to win on any given Sunday despite how well the defense is playing. On the road they only score 18.8 points per game and give up a touchdown more. Watch Rams vs Saints live free online streaming on Fox today to see the Saints can end their road worst and lock up a playoff spot.
St. Louis (5-8) was formally ousted from playoff contention last week in a road blowout loss to the Arizona Cardinals. That loss came after the San Francisco 49ers also blew them out on the road, though the Rams are 3-3 at home including a big 42-21 win over the Chicago Bears three weeks ago. With eight losses, the Rams have locked up their 10th straight season without a winning record.
Pass protection for the Rams has been a major concern. Quarterback Sam Bradford was knocked out for the season and fill-in Kellen Clemens has been dropped a total of 18 times including four by the Cardinals last week. Much to the Rams dismay, the Saints lead the NFC with 43 sacks and you can bet they will be coming hard after Clemens today knowing the St. Louis offensive line has its issues.
