New Orleans Saints 40 Houston Texans 33 As Brees, Lance Moore Connect
Written by 

It was Drew Brees and Lance Moore to the rescue as the New Orleans Saints topped the Houston Texans 40-33 in the Superdome in New Orleans.

 The Saints were dominated by the Texans throughout the first half as its defense collapsed.  However, the Texans did not capitalize  being in the Saints red zone having to rely upon field goals instead of touchdowns and leading New Orleans by only 16-10 in the first half. 

The Saints and the Texans are now 2-1.   

With 2:42 left in the game, for the win, rookie Mark Ingram powered through the Texans defensive line for the final touchdown.  Drew  Brees hit Moore for the second two-point conversion in a row using the same extra point pass-catch play.  Earlier in the quarter, Brees connected with Lance Moore for a 16-yd TD and the  2-pt conversionputting the Saints up by a 32-26advantage with  7:10 to go in the 4th quarter.

The Texans then came back down the field and scored on a freak pass deflection which went for a 4th quarter touchdown putting the Texans ahead by 33-32.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
