Sean Payton talks about 31-13 win over the Panthers

“Obviously it was a big win for us. The concern I had coming in to the game was just having the energy you need to play in a divisional game like this with a short week. I thought the schedule worked out and I thought the players handled that part of it well and I thought they had enough energy and I thought we played with a lot of emotion. We ended up getting the stops we needed defensively and I thought the score late in the second quarter was important for us. We threw it, obviously, a lot more than we ran the football and I thought our protection was outstanding against a good front. It was a good team win against a very good team that we are going to see in a couple of weeks.”

On the encouragement of bouncing back from a loss and beating such a good team:

“I know our players and staff, we all thought coming in that we knew this was a good team just looking at the season they are having and the record they have. They have had some good quality wins, they have played from behind, they have played from ahead so we were going to have to play well in all three phases and I think by-and-large we did that. It will be a quick turnaround when we play these guys in a few weeks. We thought this is a team with a lot of confidence, there is no way you get as many wins as they have without having that confidence so I was pleased with the way we handled the win and the way we played.”
