Saints 2014 preseason schedule: Five things to know about the Rams

Posted Apr 10, 2014

Saints will open the preseason in St. Louis

1. Quarterback Sam Bradford (159 for 262 for 1,687 yards and 14 touchdowns, with four interceptions) has missed 15 starts in his four-year career. The NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2011, he’s returning in 2014 from a torn ACL that forced him to miss nine games last year.

2. The Rams beat the Saints 27-16 last season. St. Louis entered the game with a 5-8 record, and the Saints were 10-3.

3. Defensive end Robert Quinn had 19 sacks and seven forced fumbles last season, including two sacks and a forced fumble against the Saints. The Rams totaled 53 sacks last season.

4. Rams Coach Jeff Fisher has an overall record of 156-137-1.

5. St. Louis was plus-8 in turnover ratio last season, 10th best in the league. Only two teams in the top 10, the Rams and Buccaneers (plus-10), had losing records.
