METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Drew Brees sounds as if he's fine with coach Sean Payton's commitment to stick with rookie left tackle Terron Armstead in a game New Orleans may have to win to make the playoffs.

Armstead made his debut Sunday in a 17-13 loss at Carolina. Three times, the player he was blocking - Greg Hardy - sacked Brees. Twice, Armstead was called for false starts.

Beyond that handful of plays, however, Brees and Payton insist they came away from their analysis of game video with the impression that Armstead performed relatively well under difficult circumstances.

Payton says Armstead performed well as a run blocker and held up well in pass protection much of the game.

Armstead says Payton's patience with his mistakes help his confidence.

New Orleans hosts Tampa Bay on Sunday.
