Saints fall to Texans 27-13; remain winless in preseason

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Saints stay winless in the preseason falling to the Houston Texans 27-13. The loss drops the Saints to 0-3.

The score is unimportant in the grand scheme of things for the black and gold. The optimist will point out Drew Brees went 4-for-6 passing for 40 yards, in one drive. The series resulted in a Zach Hocker 28-yard field goal.

Penalties should be a concern for Head Coach Sean Payton and the Saints. They registered 11 infractions for 148 yards.

New Orleans scored one touchdown on the afternoon, an Edwin Baker 45-yard run in the third quarter.

Hahnville native Alfred Blue scored on a 1-yard TD run for the Texans. The former LSU Tiger is fighting for the starting job after a hamstring injury to Arian Foster.

The Saints close out their preseason schedule Thursday night at Green Bay. Kickoff is set for 6:30, and can be seen on FOX 8.
