The New Orleans Saints finally come marching into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the preseason home opener. After ending a 10-game preseason losing streak last week in Los Angeles, the Saints are ready to keep that winning feeling going tonight against the Houston Texans. The third preseason game is widely considered to be the most important of the four games, as this is the one where we will see the starters get some time on the field.
We’ve yet to see stars like Drew Brees and Mark Ingram on the field, but tonight would likely see them make their first starts. We might even see Adrian Peterson take a carry in this debut in the black and gold, but we’ll have to see about that one. The keys here are that the starters look good, the backups stay sharp, and everyone stays healthy!
