MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WVUE) -

After the game all of the buzz was about what appeared to be a heated sideline exchange between Saints Head Coach Sean Payton and running back Adrian Peterson. Both men addressed it after the game. 

"No, I would tell you if we were in a heated exchange. So why don't you ask him. He was into it, we were all into it. There was none that I could recall, and I'm being honest," said Payton.

"There's no issue. I don't know what clip you're talking about. That's what people do. They jump to conclusions. I stopped this two questions ago. I told you there was nothing," said Adrian Peterson.

As for Peterson, his homecoming was less than stellar. He finished with six carries for 18 yards. The Saints must regroup quickly. They have the defending Super Bowl champs coming to New Orleans this Sunday.

    If you could describe the Saints 2017 draft in one word, epic comes to mind. The class reaped numerous starters, and catapulted the Black and Gold into the playoffs. With success comes higher expectations to draft solid again, but GM Mickey Loomis doesn't see it that way. Mickey Loomis: I don't know if pressure is the right word. Look last year we had five picks in the first three rounds, this year we have two. It's a different opportunity then we had a year ago. Obviously we're exci...
