The New England Patriots defeated the New Orleans Saints 7-6 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. last night.

The Saints defense forced two turnovers in the first half while the offense outgained the Patriots through the air 188-153.

"The overall execution of our football team, particularly with our defense and our coverage units, really improved from a week ago,” said Assistant Head Coach/Linebackers Coach Joe Vitt. “We are happy so far with the way we are coming along. We have a big week coming up, this is the last week of training camp. We have a lot of things to get cleaned up. We have a lot of teaching to do. We are excited to do that."

The Saints (1-1) will return home and continue Training Camp this week prior to facing the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome next Friday night at 7 p.m.  The Patriots will host the Philadelphia Eagles in their next preseason game on Monday, Aug. 20, on ESPN.
