Which New Orleans Saints team will play against Houston Texans tonight?
Written by 

spag-vitt2-newIf the New Orleans Saints play like they did the last time they matched up against the Houston Texans in pre-season, it will be a long night for the home team in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

If they take on the Texans as they did during last year’s regular season, Brees and gang will score often and prevail against a powerful Houston offense.



Saturday night’s game is a showdown between two 2011 division champions.  During last year’s exhibition season,  the Texans manhandled the Saints 27-14 at Reliant Stadium.  A month later, the Saints overcame a Texan lead and won 40-33.

Much depends upon how Drew Brees does in what appears to be a game where the first teams will play much of the first half.

The Houston Texans certainly have their weapons in  Arian Foster and Ben Tate.

 The Saints hope to get great mileage from Brees, Colston and the rest of one of the most prolific offenses in decades.

The Saints take a 1-2 losing record into tonight’s match as they were surprised by a sharp performance by QB Blaine Gabbert of the Jacksonville Jaguars last Friday.

However, the Saints did get a good performance from its QB’s.  Drew Brees completed 10-of-13 passes for 133 yards with one touchdown pass and a 134.5 passer rating. Chase Daniel completed 16-of-21 throws for 185 yards with two scoring tosses and a 134.0 rating. 

Houston enters the game 2-0 having walloped the Carolina Panthers 26-13 and the San Francisco 49ers 20-9, a team that beat the Saints last year in the playoffs.
