The New Orleans Saints handed the Los Angeles Rams their first loss of the season last Sunday when Drew Brees found Michael Thomas for a 72-yard touchdown pass with just under four minutes left in the fourth quarter. "We thought we really liked that matchup - a lot".
"Tell Sean Payton to keep talking that s-", Peters said.
Thomas performed so well that his head coach, Sean Payton, may have even taken a subtle shot at the job, or lack thereof, that Peters did defending him - something that Peters didn't appreciate too much. "So tell him, keep talking that (expletive), and I hope he sees me soon". You feel me? Yeah. "And then we're gonna have a nice little bowl of gumbo together".
If Peters and the Rams do see the Saints again this season, it will most likely be in the NFC Championship Game. All told, Thomas made six catches when Peters was in coverage on him.
According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Peters was the nearest defender on eight targets against the Saints, all of which were to Thomas.
There was a better chance Peters played quarterback next week than for him to remain quiet.
"Got up there in press, came back, he just beat me off the line", Peters said. "S-- happens like that in football".
