Saints focused on communication breakdowns after drubbing

Sean Payton isn't interested in discussing the challenges of being displaced, or missing injured starters, or having his available game-day coaching staff decimated by COVID-19 protocols.

New Orleans' coach says the Saints were simply out-schemed at the line of scrimmage by Carolina, didn't adjust well and were outplayed - and that is why they came crashing back to earth in Week 2.

"There were too many times a free (pass) rusher; too many times when our communication wasn't on point," Payton said Monday after reviewing video of Sunday's 26-7 loss at Carolina.
