METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- Fully one third of all of sacks and interceptions the New Orleans Saints' defense has produced this season happened in one game - the last game.

Middle linebacker Craig Robertson and defensive end Paul Kruger are among the Saints defenders who said they'd like to think the spike in big plays is something that can carry forward - not simply the result of favorable matchups on a particular week.

This Thursday night, the Saints play the Carolina Panthers and veteran, dynamic quarterback Cam Newton. Last week, it was Denver rookie Trevor Siemian, whose team's struggling running game has only increased pressure on him.

Kruger said he sees the Saints' defense ''starting to play well together, starting to understand each other as individuals and as a group.''
