Saints vs. Patriots: Biggest Winners and Losers from New Orleans Preseason Debut

On most occasions when games played in the Boston area result in a score of 7-6, people think about a Red Sox win (or loss depending on if you're a glass-half-empty type of person). That wasn't the case Thursday evening.

The local team did win 7-6, but this was no baseball game.

The New England Patriots held off the New Orleans Saints, 7-6, in the first official preseason game for the Saints.

7-6.

Quarterback Drew Brees played for two series Thursday and went 1-for-4 for four yards. His last pass of the night was his sole completion. Talk about ending on a high note.

The New Orleans offense posted 280 yards of offense in the game and never reached the end zone. The Saints settled for two field goals, a 46-yarder from John Kasay and a 26-yarder from Garrett Hartley.

After that—quite possibly because of that—the game was devoid of offense. It was sad coming from two teams that usually put scoreboards through the ringer.

Here are some winners and losers from the New Orleans Saints from their game in New England.
