The St. Louis Rams tests its vaunted defense against the New Orleans Saints tonight at 7 p.m. in the teams' first preseason contest against each other since 1968. Although the game doesn't count in the standings and the starters will most likely only appear in the first few series, fans watching at the Edward Jones Dome (701 Convention Center Plaza; 314-342-5201 or www.stlouisrams.com) can see whether or not quarterback Sam Bradford's knee is holding up, and determine how much fire this year's team has in the gut. Tonight's game also allows new guys Greg Robinson, Aaron Donald and Michael Sam their first chance to show the Rams faithful what they can do. Tickets are $51.90 to $339.40.
