Payton harps on Saints' mental errors in 2 losses
METAIRIE - Saints coach Sean Payton says he's been disappointed by his players' lack of situational awareness during a pair of close losses to open the season.
The coach says the result has been costly pre-snap mental errors including blown pass coverages, running backs failing to pick up a blitzes and an offside on an opponent's field goal try.
Those were examples of the errors that plagued New Orleans in a 26-24 loss at Cleveland this past weekend.
The Saints will seek their first victory in their home opener against Minnesota this Sunday, but may be without running back Mark Ingram.
Payton says he's not yet ready to discuss Ingram's health publicly, but a person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Ingram has a broken hand.
