NEW ORLEANS SAINTS COACH SEAN PAYTON

“Big win. Real good win for our team. Obviously, we played a very good team tonight. I was proud of the way we came through and made enough plays to start the season 1-0. We’ve got a lot of things we’ll be able to work on and clean up when we get to the video. I’m real pleased and proud of the way they started and finished that game especially against that team.”

(on defensive game plan) “Just trying to do a good job of keeping the ball in front of us. We felt like we had a pretty good plan and support. I thought defensively we did a very good job of holding against the run and still taking some of the downfield throws away. I thought our players tackled really well.”

(On the second half play) “One thing we tried to do early on was just create a rhythm against this front, its one of the better fronts we are going to see. As we got into the second half we wanted to establish some of these runs that helped us with some play action and that ended up being important. It certainly was important in the four minute drive to put the game away.”

(On importance of scoring on first possession in the second half) “Its tough when you settle for a field goal and don’t come up with the points. I was pleased, especially late (in the game), for us to finish that game off. The points in the second half were critical, just as they were in the first drive of the first half. I told the team a few minutes ago, it was a great team win against a good team. We are excited about it, we will get on to the next one and yet we understand the significance of each one of these.”

(on winning by scoring 14 points) “We don’t really worry about it. We just worry about the wins at the end. It’s a good defense and credit them. I’ve been saying all week that this is a different game by two different teams. We can’t draw comparisons, although we’d like to, to that type of game a year ago. So regardless of how you win them, we are at a spot right now where I think our players expect to win and that’s what is most important.”
