Monday Night Football - Week 1

Houston Texans (0-0) at New Orleans Saints (0-0)

The Saints face the Texans in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the first, and most important game of tonight’s Monday Night Football doubleheader! It’s a well-known fact that the Saints have failed to win a Week One game since 2013, but if there were ever a time for that streak to come to an end, its here tonight. Motivated by heartbreak and hunger, bolstered by a great roster and staff, energized by the best fans in the NFL, these Saints are ready to make their run, and it all starts right here!
