Saints vs. Cardinals: Preseason open thread

The 2018 Saints Preseason continues back home in the Superdome. Join us here for the game!

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints continue the 2018 Preseason at home against the Arizona Cardinals tonight. The Saints left Jacksonville with a satisfying 4th quarter rally to win last week, but the first-team defense left a lot to be desired in their limited time on the field. The Saints look to fix some of what ailed them in that performance and get geared up for the wins and losses that truly count.

Besides the defensive starters, the brightest lights will shine on quarterbacks Tom Savage and Taysom Hill, as they should be taking all the snaps in this game, battling it out to secure the #2 spot on the depth chart. Its game time, so let’s mix it up in the comments and enjoy this Saints team’s first game under the lights of the Superdome! Who Dat!
