If 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.
