St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is having an impressive rookie campaign, but the New Orleans Saints defense made the youngster suffer through one of the worst games of his young career, in a 31-13 Saints win, on Sunday. Nakia Hogan, of the Time-Picayune, has the story, below.

Sam Bradford, the ballyhooed quarterback of the St. Louis Rams, might be well on his way to winning the NFL's Rookie of the Year award.

His performance Sunday won't be the one that secures him the coveted trophy, though.

Under constant pressure from the New Orleans Saints' defense at the Superdome, Bradford found it difficult to lead the Rams to any sustained success, as the Saints blasted St. Louis 31-13 before a sellout crowd.
