METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

In the NFL a short-term memory is a must. Cornerback P.J. Williams got burned for an early score, Saturday, by the Texans' Will Fuller to put the Saints behind 7-0.

"On the touchdown he outside released. I was even with him, then he was to get on top of me. I didn't locate the ball as good as I should of, he made a good play on me," said Williams.

Williams erased the score from his mind, and caught redemption on a fourth-down attempt. Intercepting Brock Osweiler by out-jumping the receiver.

"Oh man it was good, good feeling," said a smiling Williams. "I definitely wanted to come back and make a play to make up for that. That was my goal. Being able to do it was definitely a good thing."

Williams came in to training camp as a primary backup, but with the release of Keenan Lewis, Williams has a shot to start for the Black and Gold.

"Every day I was taking baby steps to get myself better. Not only be a good player on our defense, but a good player throughout the league. I'm looking to get better for myself. Wherever I'm going to be, going to look in helping the team, that's my mindset," said Williams.
