Saints gaining confidence in their defense

(TSX / STATS) -- WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- It's only the preseason, it's only one game and it was against the Cleveland Browns.

So, there are a lot of caveats to keep in mind, but given the play of the New Orleans Saints defense in recent seasons, the starting unit's solid effort in the 20-14 defeat in the preseason opener Thursday at Cleveland is worth noting.

The Saints held the Browns without a first down in the first quarter and came up with a goal-line stand to thwart Cleveland's first scoring threat in the second quarter.
