The extra days off following a Thursday night game were needed by the New Orleans Saints, who seek to find their footing again after two straight losses dropped the team to 3-4 heading into Sunday’s game against the Colts (3-4) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
“It came at a good time for us,” Coach Dennis Allen said. “Gave the players an opportunity to kind of reset a little bit, and us as a coaching staff as well. I think we all utilized this time to reflect on what we’ve done over the first seven games and where are some areas that we need to improve, and so we’re hard at work now on getting those areas improved.”
“Kind of regroup,” center Erik McCoy said. “I think a lot of people got out of town, just time away so we could come in this week with a new sense of focus, a new sense of urgency, a new sense of juice, so to call it. Have that carry over from practice into the game.”
