The New Orleans Saints closed out the 2023 preseason at home in Caesars Superdome with a 17-13 loss to the Houston Texans. There was a lot to evaluate in their final preseason game as the Saints are now facing some really tough decisions today. All NFL teams must have their rosters reduced to 53 players by 3 pm CST. While we are waiting on news on who will make the final squad, let’s take a look at some of the important quotes from Sunday night’s game.
