Sean Payton on Andrus Peat: 'I thought he did a lot of good things'

While Andrus Peat drew his first NFL start in Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles, it came with mixed reviews. Peat did look solid at many points throughout the game, but also was beaten for two sacks.

Apparently, one man who focused more on the positives of Peat's first start, was head coach Sean Payton. According to Evan Woodbery of The Times-Picayune, Payton said Peat looked "solid" against the Eagles.

"I thought he did a lot of good things," Payton told The Times-Picayune of his film review of Peat.

It's good that Peat didn't struggle mightily on Sunday, as it seems there's a chance he could start again on Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons. Terron Armstead is dealing with a knee injury, which has given Peat the nod.
