Saints embracing timely 3-game 'dome' stand
METAIRIE - Saints coach Sean Payton sounds conflicted when the topic turns to his extraordinary success in the Superdome in recent years.
Payton is pleased to remind Saints fans that they can create an advantage for their team by being excruciatingly loud at the right moments. He's less comfortable playing up the fact that he has coached 20 straight games in the Superdome without losing.
Payton says there's a lot that has gone into all those dome victories, but stresses, "none of it's applicable for this weekend's game" against San Francisco.
New Orleans (4-4) plays its next three games at home, putting the Saints in position to build on their slim divisional lead in the shaky NFC South.
Quarterback Drew Brees says the Saints want to take advantage of their recent momentum.
