While coach Sean Payton wants to address the mistakes that nearly cost his team a pair of crucial victories at Dallas and Cincinnati, he doesn't see a troubling trend yet.

If anything, he sees a team that has been good enough to extend its current winning streak to five by overcoming several blunders in hostile environments with clutch plays at the end.

The New Orleans Saints seemingly were on their way to comfortable victories in each of their last two games, only to blow two-touchdown leads each time and find themselves frantically coming from behind in the final minutes.
