Cardinals karma, Rams beat Saints in St. Louis

There was no bigger surprise on the NFL gridiron Sunday than in the city where the baseball team just won the World Series.

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and some of his players were on hand to watch the St. Louis Rams shock the highly regarded New Orleans Saints 31-21 for their first win of the season.

Rams running back Steven Jackson turned in his first 100-yard game in three seasons, logging 159 yards and a pair of Touchdowns.

The maligned Rams defense did its part, sacking Saints quarterback Drew Brees six times and intercepting him twice, returning one for a touchdown.
