Trevor Siemian said the late success didn’t make him feel any better because the team lost the game, but head coach Sean Payton had a more charitable view of how the quarterback played on Sunday.
“Overall, he played well,” Payton said in his press conference. “We missed some pickups. He had a few throws in there that were not primary receivers and played with poise, brought us back. I thought, overall, I felt like it was good."
Siemian didn't do much early on in what was his first start since 2019. Siemian lost a fumble while the Falcons were building a 24-6 lead over the Saints, but threw two fourth quarter touchdown passes to help get New Orleans back into the game, the story said. It would appear Siemian will get the call again in Week 10 against the Titans.
