When the New Orleans Saints buckled down Wednesday morning in preparation for Saturday’s wild-card playoff game against the host Seattle Seahawks, the first topic Coach Sean Payton said he stressed was turnovers.

It was turnovers that stamped the Saints; run to victory in Super Bowl XLIV last season, most memorably a pair of interceptions by cornerback Tracy Porter in the NFC championship game and then the Super Bowl. New Orleans finished +7 in postseason turnovers in 2009.
