Payton, Saints proud of their toughness, resolve

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Even as the New Orleans Saints enjoy their return to the top of the NFC South, coach Sean Payton wants his team to remember what it felt like to be 2-4.

"Having been where we've been and knowing how difficult that is, you refuse to go back," Payton said Friday while discussing how he hoped the first half of the season had shaped his team. "Hopefully, you are becoming more resilient and a little bit tougher both mentally and physically."

In a span of five days, the Saints have dramatically turned around a season that appeared to be running off of the rails after a fourth-quarter collapse in Detroit on Oct. 19.
