Back to .500 at midseason following a 1-4 start, they took more positives than negatives from their record-setting 52-49 victory against the New York Giants. Drew Brees and Eli Manning combined for an NFL-record 13 touchdown passes.

''Sometimes games take on a flow to them,'' Saints coach Sean Payton said. ''I don't think New York or New Orleans went into that game thinking it would be in the high 40s, low 50s, and yet it began to unfold that way. The key was getting a stop at the end.''

Right after Brees' seventh touchdown pass tied the score at 49 with 36 seconds left, the Saints forced a three-and-out, setting up a wild punt return that led to Kai Forbath's 50-yard field goal as time ran out. Manning failed to connect with Rueben Randle on a deep pass, dumped the ball to running back Shane Vereen for 5 yards and threw incomplete on third down.

''You give up a few plays on that drive, and all of a sudden they (the Giants) are kicking a field goal to win the game,'' Payton said. ''And you go home with a loss.''

Re: Saints gaining confidence, even as defense struggles

We have some very winnable games coming up and 10-6 isn't out of the question any more. Hell, we may sweep the Falcon's again.

Damn... We are 9-2 playing them. I love those Falcons.

I love how easy it is to beat the crap out of them! Lol

Home against the Titans and on the road @ Washington; the Saints could very well be 6-4 going into the bye week!

Say what you will about our D in this game, they made the plays they had to to win. That is how most NFL teams win.

Re: Saints gaining confidence, even as defense struggles

The defense got shredded

On the bright side injuries are still an issue BUT not as much.
Plus talk about some officials. What a pile of crap that group turned out to be.
Youth and the word GEL are still in vogue

so enjoy the ride
