Aaron Rodgers said the Green Bay Packers were always going to need to put up big numbers against Drew Brees and the star quarterback is enjoying the trust being shown by head coach Matt LaFleur.
The Packers defeated Brees' Saints 37-30 on the road at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, with Rodgers passing for three touchdowns and 283 yards.
It means the Packers have gone 3-0 to start the NFL season and an in-form Rodgers is encouraged by the team's performances, especially against a team led by the quality Brees possesses.
"Any time you're playing a Drew Brees team you know you have to score, he's such a dynamic player," Rodgers said.
"The two times we've played here before it felt like they put up 50 both times, I know they got 52 in one of them.
"We knew the type of game [they would play], they've got a lot of playmakers and Drew obviously knows how to deal the ball.
"But right now, our offense, I feel really good about it. We got in a good flow, I feel like again Matt had a nice flow with the calls, we did a good job on third downs for the most part and were opportunistic with some big plays when we needed it.
"We got a lot of guys involved, had a number of guys catch passes and a number of guys we needed to play well played well."
Rodgers' scoring passes were recorded at five yards to Allen Lazard, 18 yards to Marcedes Lewis and one yard to Robert Tonyan.
The 36-year-old feels the team are being trusted to make the right decisions by second-year head coach LaFleur.
"I really like the timing on certain calls," Rodgers said.
"Sometimes, you've got to kind of dig deep at certain times and hold on to something and trust the players. I really appreciate the flow that we had and the trust in us to make the plays."
The Saints are 1-2 from their three games and head coach Sean Payton admitted the team are not performing how they need to.
"We're not playing well enough. Let's not fool ourselves. We're making too many mistakes," Payton said. "We're not playing disciplined enough on both sides of the ball."
