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.

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
