Victory gives Saints hope, though flaws remain exposed

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The New Orleans Saints feel a lot better about themselves after securing their first victory of this season, but they know they still face an uphill battle to climb into playoff contention.

A 26-20 overtime-home victory against injury-ravaged Dallas on Sunday night left the Saints (1-3) three games behind NFC South co-leaders Atlanta and Carolina and nowhere near where they want to be.

"We finally got the monkey off our back, but like we've been saying all morning, it's just the first one," said rookie linebacker Stephone Anthony, who had seven tackles and a sack for a youth-infused defense. "We have to go get some more. You can't get two without getting one, so it's a good start."
