ST. LOUIS -- Drew Brees threw interceptions that led to touchdowns on the first two possessions and the St. Louis Rams got big days from Zac Stacy, Robert Quinn and on special teams to top the New Orleans Saints 27-16 on Sunday.

Quinn had two sacks, giving him an NFC-leading 15, and his quarterback hit on the Saints' first snap of the game altered the flight of the ball on T.J. McDonald's interception.

The Saints (10-4) missed their first chance to clinch a playoff berth, trailing 24-3 at the half, but made it look respectable with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. They play at Carolina with the NFC South lead on the line next week.

Kellen Clemens threw for two TDs for the Rams (6-8), who recovered an onside kick to set up a field goal in the first quarter, and Michael Brockers blocked a field goal at the end of the half.
