Two huge parts of the Los Angeles Rams offense are quarterback Jared Goff and wide receiver Cooper Kupp. Both players have attended and have been counselors at the Manning Passing Academy at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux.

Goff was entering his junior season at the University of California when he attended the Manning Passing Academy, but already was fielding questions on if he would turn pro early.

“I’m really concentrating on having the best season I can have for California and trying to win the school a PAC-12 title,” Goff said. “People are going to question me about it a lot and I certainly understand why, but it’s just part of me getting better as a player. It’s one of the main reasons I am here in Thibodaux and that’s to pick up little pieces of the game from Peyton and Eli and also to see and study some of the top quarterbacks in the nation that are here.”

The New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams are poised to kick off the most anticipated game of the year on Sunday. Including a 2018 preseason game, this will be the sixth time these teams have played each other in the last four years. That familiarity — combined with the wake of the infamous NFC championship game — has elevated the Rams to their biggest non-divisional rivals.

To get an informed opinion on what the Saints are in for this week, we exchanged questions with Cameron DaSilva, managing editor of Rams Wire. Here are his responses:

The Saints played a long-anticipated rematch against the Rams Sunday, but the game was quickly marked by injuries and contested calls.

After the now-infamous NFC championship game in January, Saints fans regularly wear referee shirts in protest of a game-changing call by the refs.

A blown call — this time on a fumble recovery ran back for a touchdown — ended up costing the Saints a chance to take a 7-point lead vs. the Rams.

Rams extend lead to 14 points before end of third quarter

The Rams and Saints were playing a defensive slugfest for most of the first three quarters, but the Rams opened up a sizable lead over the final minutes of the third quarter.

Jared Goff found Brandin Cooks for a two-yard touchdown less than five minutes after Todd Gurley‘s four-yard touchdown run broke a 6-6 tie. That puts the Rams up 20-6 at the end of three quarters against a Saints team that’s playing without quarterback Drew Brees.

The team also announced that tight end Tyler Higbee is out for the rest of the day with a chest injury. He had two...

LOS ANGELES -- Drew Brees has been sidelined by an injury for just the second time in his 14 years as the New Orleans Saints' quarterback.

Saints Cameron Jordan thought he had a touchdown that broke a 3-3 tie late in the second quarter, but officials wrongly ruled Jared Goff had thrown an incompletion on a play that should have been ruled a fumble.

The Saints got the ball, but their drive stalled on a failed fourth-down run by Alvin Kamara near midfield. The Rams used the good field position to their advantage as a 20-yard run by Todd Gurley and a 14-yard completion to Robert Woods put them in the red...

The last time the Saints and Rams faced each other, a bad call by the officials helped lead to an overtime win for the Rams.

There’s no Super Bowl berth on the line this time and there’s a lot of football left to play in Los Angeles on Sunday, but there’s big reason for the Saints to be upset with the officiating again.

Defensive lineman Trey Hendrickson stripped Rams quarterback Jared Goff of the ball before Goff could throw a pass and Cameron Jordan scooped the...
