They were torched not only by Saints starting QB Drew Brees for two touchdowns, but were also routed by backup QB Chase Daniels who had another three touchdowns.
This season, under the new defensive leadership of Wade Phillips, the Texans will be looking to redeem themselves.
Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints will be looking to continue their winning ways. Coming off a commanding win against the San Francisco 49ers, they will be watching Houston very closely.
These two teams will meet again in the regular season, and you can bet that the coaches will be taking notes tonight.
This game should be a great opportunity to see the development of the Texans defense as well as the great offense of the Saints.
Kickoff is at 7:00pm CT.
