Grading the New Orleans Saints' performance in their 31-13 win Sunday over the St. Louis Rams at the Superdome.

Offense: 3½ fleurs-de-lis.

The final stat lines don't look that great, but the Saints' offense was stellar when it counted. They marched down the field for touchdowns on their first two possessions, converting six of six third downs. And quarterback Drew Brees made some pinpoint throws, including a 17-yard touchdown pass to Marques Colston on third-and-goal. Plus, they had balance with the run game, led by Chris Ivory's 47 yards in the first quarter. The offensive line was outstanding, and a third touchdown drive late in the third quarter essentially sealed the victory. The negatives were some dropped passes by Colston and Robert Meachem and two more interceptions by Brees. The Saints put pressure on the Rams all day, making it clear they were going to have to play catch-up.
