Saints fall to Texans in preseason opener
The New Orleans Saints lost their preseason opener on Saturday night 17-13 to Houston, but the first team offense and defense looked good.
Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton led New Orleans on a ten-play touchdown drive, where he completed all five of his passes including a nine-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Washington.
It was also a good night for linebacker Chase Hansen who re-signed with the team less than a week ago after spending a couple of seasons on the team’s practice squad. Hanson played 24 snaps on defense, seven on special teams, and had six tackles, two tackles for a loss, and an interception.
The Saints next preseason game is Friday night at Green Bay.
