METAIRIE - Lance Moore says he's confident the veteran Saints will clean up mistakes that have cost them two losses in their past three games.

New Orleans was primed to run away with the NFC South after a 5-0 start.

In the past month, however, the Saints (6-2) have seen Carolina pull within one game of the division lead.

The Saints and Panthers meet twice in December, but there are several tough games looming before that.

NFC East leader Dallas visits on Sunday night, followed by reigning NFC champ San Francisco the following week. Two weeks later, the Saints visit NFC leader Seattle.

Coach Sean Payton says he'll work to make his pass-heavy offense more balanced, and that his defense will address its problems stopping the run.
