Patriots Ready For Joint Practice With Saints
" FOXBORO (CBS) – When the New England Patriots take the practice field Tuesday afternoon, they won’t be going against each other anymore.

The Patriots and New Orleans Saints will hold two joint practices this week, starting Tuesday, leading up to their Thursday night preseason game at Gillette.

“[They’ll] definitely be a big challenge,” head coach Bill Belichick said of the Saints. “They’re good on defense; good in the kicking game. They have a good, strong team; they’re solid. They’ll have a game under their belt so it will be good competition. [I’m] looking forward to it.”

“We’ve done it before, so hopefully we can get a lot out of it,” said quarterback Tom Brady. “They’re a very good team. It’s fun to have a game week and we’ve been trying to string practices together. We’ve had some good ones, we’ve had some ones that haven’t been great and you try to learn from your mistakes and come back and not repeat them "
