Well, that was ugly. The Saints played incredibly sloppy as they fell to the Houston Texans 27-14. Most notably, the defense sucked a big one. That's what you really need to take away from this game. 

Use this thread for all your post-game chatter. Click the picture to see more from tonight's debacle. Make the jump for final stats from the game. Warning: it's not pretty.

 Lots of other disappointing aspects to discuss tomorrow and just a few bright spots. Fleur-de-Links will be posted bright and early tomorrow morning, followed by my initial notes and observations.
