"I don't care what I gotta do, I'm scoring this one. Four years in the league, man. It takes a while, but it's here. I scored on my wife's birthday tomorrow! That ball was for her... but that second one, that's mine."— New Orleans Saints (@Saints) September 19, 2023

"We're 2-0 and I don't think we've played at the level that we're all expecting to play at yet... we're going to keep working and make those corrections, but it feels good to do it with a win." pic.twitter.com/Z6NXcMqA6M— New Orleans Saints (@Saints) September 19, 2023
Trevor Penning told me he battled with confidence last week but was able to find it coming into today. Said he played not to lose last week. He felt like he played much better this week and is confident moving forward— Nick Underhill (@nick_underhill) September 19, 2023
