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.

He seems to have a good grasp of where to go with the football. When he throws it, he has nice zip and accuracy. His athleticism is obvious too when he moves around. His best pass came on a nine route to Eldridge Massington. He also connected to an open receiver on a post route. Let’s not get too...
