FOXBORO, MA (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Saints went back to work Tuesday morning in a quest to find answers before the team’s first preseason game.
The team started joint practices with the New England Patriots in Foxboro, MA.

The two teams went through the first of two workouts in New England. Thursday night’s preseason opener is in Gillette Stadium.

The workout went about 2 1/2 hours and it featured plenty of 11 on 11 drills.

Cameras were only allowed to shoot 30 minutes of individual practices. So, the things you don't get to see are the interception of Tom Brady by Sheldon Rankins. There was also a solid secondary play made by Jairus Byrd and Roman Harper on Rob Gronkowski.

Saints Coach Sean Payton has been preaching competition all training camp and his team got plenty of that here in Foxboro.

“Obviously, we got a lot of good situational football drills between the base, 3rd down, red area, (and) two minute. We hit a lot of periods with certain points of emphasis. Both teams, I thought, did a good job of just competing and keeping each other up,” Payton said.

The scrimmage and practice with the Patriots continue Wednesday at 9:15 a.m.
