Saints coach Sean Payton and players who’ve been in New Orleans a few years have endured a cruel kind of three-peat.

Three seasons running have ended with playoff loses in which the decisive points were scored on the final play.

The latest loss came Sunday in overtime against Minnesota.

Payton expresses confidence that quarterback Drew Brees will be back.

But the Saints will have to compete for the service of several 2019 starters who are among 17 other New Orleans players entering free agency.
