Houston Texans over New Orleans Saints
August 31, 2015 in Sports News
As part of the third week of preseason Houston Texans dominated 27-13 over the New Orleans , adding another loss for the Saints, who remains without a single victory since the start of this couple of weeks of preparation towards the 2015 regular season in the NFL, Texans kicker Randy Bullock was one of the most sought after within the field of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, where he had two field goals of 49 and 29 yards, in addition to successfully converted three bonus points.
Given the defensive gifts offered by the Saints, the visiting team controlled the game since the starting quarter as well as Bullock performance added the efforts in the end zone through Alfred Blue, who burst into the end zone after a yard mini hauling during the first minutes of the opening quarter, by the the third quarter, quarterback Ryan Mallett completed a six-yard pass to receiver Jaelen Strong to extend the lead and in the fourth quarter the final figures were established after sending the six yard pass to Chandler Worthy courtesy of Tom Savage, Strong was a bit shaky in the start of the game but as the action progressed we saw a more confident receiver.
The home side had little reason to smile and just witnessed the ephemeral work of its star quarterback Drew Brees, who made only four out of six attempts for a 40 yard gain, the only action for Brees in the entire game had fans disappointed on the expectations placed on the quarterback. the duo Hoyer, who was recently named the starting quarterback and Hopkins was a very interesting sight as both players started accommodating their rhythm
For the most part of the first half, head coach Sean Payton didn’t put his starting players in formation despite the fact that the 3rd preseason game is the test for the expected shaping of the regular season force; While Houston improved his season record to 2-1, Saints fell to a deplorable 0-3; this next Thursday, in their final test, Texans will go to AT&T Stadium to be measured against the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans will deal at the legendary Lambeau Field against Green Bay Packers,
