Adams told Sky Sports News: "There's a long way to go but it is of course very nice to be top of the table. I want to be top - it's nice to have a weekend where we can enjoy being top.
"There's lots of good teams in this division and it's a great sign that we've made a good start. It was exactly what we needed. We've had to come from behind in games this season. We had a solid first half and then stepped it up in the second half.
"We didn't panic, we stuck to what we had to do. It wasn't a classic like Cardiff and Brentford, but it was workmanlike."
Norwich face Charlton Athletic in their next outing in the Championship on Tuesday.
