Energy can be an elusive concept on an NFL field.

New Orleans sputtered on Sunday, falling to its worst loss of the season in a 28-13 defeat at the hands of the Detroit Lions, and a few Saints felt like the team was a little flat.

Cornerback Delvin Breaux chalked up the loss to a lack of energy.

"There was no energy," Breaux said. "That’s something I pointed out whenever we came out for warm-ups. It was just no energy, everything felt dead, then as the game was being played, I didn’t see the energy on the sideline, either."

But a few of Breaux's teammates felt like the Saints' inability to execute trumped any issues with energy. Quarterback Drew Brees and Sheldon Rankins both said an inability to execute was at fault for the ugly loss.

"If guys said they felt it, that's them. I didn't feel (a lack of energy)," linebacker Dannell Ellerbe said. "I felt like guys were focused. Just because guys aren't hooping and hollering doesn't mean that they're not focused and ready to play."
