"Tell Sean Payton to keep talking that s-", Peters said.
Following the game, head coach Sean Payton stated how much the team liked the matchup between Peters and Thomas and those comments seemed to run Peters the wrong way. "Because I like what he was saying on the sidelines too. You feel me? And then we going to have a good little, nice little bowl of gumbo together", Peters added, according to Gary Klein of the LA Times. "So tell him, keep talking that (expletive), and I hope he sees me soon". I hope he see me soon, you feel me?
Thomas had a career day against Peters and the Rams, setting a new franchise record for most receiving yards in a single game with 211, catching 12-of-15 passes and six of eight when covered by Peters. Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas was a monster in the game. Thomas may have won Offensive Player of the Week with Peters covering him, but he's not really someone you want to target, as he's a turnover-producing machine.
During Peters' postgame interviews, he owned up to his poor performance and was adamant he could play better.
Hopefully, these two teams do get to meet up again in the playoffs.
