    week 1 Texans(24) at Saints(37)

    Good game Nate I am sure he will give it a nice write up. Texans were sloppy and all over the place so unprepared. We worked on improving the OL and RB's in the off season and then immediately abandon the running game and go pass happy. Even ran a more run oriented offense this year and still looked for the old plays from last year just terrible. Saints were up early 14-0 and then 21-3. The Texans did manage to get it to 24-17 in the 3rd qt but could not get a stop on 3rd down all day nor could I pick up on a 3rd down. Saints QB English was great and accurate and Saints defense was FAST. Final 37-24 Saints good luck this year Nate and good game. To add insult to injury so to speak Texans also lose Mario Williams for a period of time not sure yet how long but it was a dislocated elbow I think...

    SAINTS OPEN UP SEASON 3 WITH DECISIVE VICTORY
    New Orleans, LA - Savage Mason Reporting

    Saints came into OMFL Year 3 excited about their team after a very quite, yet good offseason. With some exciting pick ups on defense and just a few minor tweaks on offense, the saints were jacked and ready to hit the field. Overall their team speed is amazing and this squad will look to battle the Panthers and Bucs for the division.

    Saints 1st play of the game, RB Keller takes a shot and tears his abdominal, out for the game! This didn't seem to phase the Saints though as the offense didnt miss a beat with new RB Jacobs and Washington. Saints punch in their first two drives, with long, time consuming drives that just ate up the clock, and Texans defense. Jacobs punched in the 1st drive with a 7 yard rumble and the 2nd drive was topped off by an amazing pass catch combo with English and Henderson. Henderson made a spectacular grab over 3 defenders and over his head.

    Texans put together a great drive of their own, yet saints defense gets stingy and holds them to a fg.

    Saints get the ball back and start another great drive. This time topping it off with a 1 yard sneak by English. 21-3 Saints.

    Right before halftime the Saints allowed Johnson to get behind the defense and burn them for a long TD to make it 10-21 Saints.

    2nd half seen both defensives play very well as Saints added 2 fgs and the Texans a fg of their own. 27-13 Saints going into the 4th.

    This is where the game got interesting. Saints were trying to put the game away, while the Texans started to really open it up.

    Saints get the ball halfway through the 4th knowing they needed to put the game away or these Texans were going to get back in it quickly.

    Saints put together another drive using the combo of Jacob's hard running and English crisp passing to get it down to the 1 yard line. Texans defense as outstanding on the goal line all day line, this time though the saints used a playaction on 3rd down to hit a TE for the TD.

    Saints added a FG late off of a turn over and the Texans battled back and hit Johnson on an amazing play as he out jumped the CB for the td.

    Saints start out the year on the right foot, picking up a huge win at home vs a very good texans team. Saints defense looked great except for a few minor hiccups and a great play by Johnson. The schedule doesnt get any easier and the Saints will look to keep things rolling next week.

    QB JACK ENGLISH
    Jack was simply amazing today. He made all the throws that you can ask for, and some you never expect. 22/28, 2 tds, and 317 yards passing, and a rushing td. English used his arm and legs today to pick up some huge 1st downs and eat up the clock all game long. English has stepped into his own and looks to have a big year for NO.
