Simplified defensive scheme helping Saints, but defense a work in progress in some key areas _lowres

Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON--New Orleans Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis (21) returns to the field against the Dallas Cowboys after missing several weeks due to injury in the Superdome in New Orleans, La. Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015.

After playing 18 snaps last week in his first game back from injury, Keenan Lewis could see a bigger role this week.

But while the New Orleans Saints cornerback is likely excited about that possibility, he’s also eager to see how well Philadelphia Eagles throw eggs.

The last time the Saints played in Philadelphia, Lewis said the team buses were egged several times by Eagles fan. This year, he said, he’s going to put a bull’s-eye up on the bus and see which fans have the best arm.

“They’ll throw probably 10 eggs at each bus and make a lot of noise,” he said. “You got to try to find a way to block it out and play ball.”

Lewis said he wasn’t impressed with their aim the last time the Saints were in Philadelphia and is hoping to see a better effort from the fans.

“They kind of missed last time. The fans probably hit the wrong window,” he said. “The bull’s-eye was in the middle. Hopefully they worked on their aim during their training camp as well.”

Lewis played in nickel and dime packages during last week’s game against the Dallas Cowboys and was not targeted once by quarterback Brandon Weeden during the 26-20 win.

He said he doesn’t know how much he’ll play this week.

“I’ll let coach make that decision,” Lewis said. “I’m getting better every day. That’s the positive.”
