Saints defense key in victory

Posted: Updated:
New Orleans, La. -

Who Dat nation may not have been anticipating a season opener more than the one today against arch rival and divisional foe Atlanta.  Head coach Sean Payton returned to the sidelines after a season long suspension in 2012 and the black and gold felt like they had a lot to prove after missing the playoffs last year.

They came out and made a statement, especially on defense.  The league's worse defense last season held a dynamic Atlanta offense to 17 points and 2-4 in the red zone.  Saints are 1-0 in the division now and head to play another divisional opponent Tampa next week.  KTBS Sports Director Paul Crane has more from New Orleans.
