The (1-1) Houston Texans of the AFC South Division will take a trip to the “BIG EASY” to take on the (0-2) New Orleans Saints of the NFC South in 2015 NFL Exhibition action. The team will play on Sunday, August 30th, 2015 at 4:00 PM EST. The 2015 Houston Texans are the 2015 feature on ESPN “HARD KNOCKS”. Houston Head Coach Bill O’Brien recently and the coaching staff has made some decision that will affect the team going forward. Particularly in naming Brian Hoyer the starter at quarterback. The New Orleans Saints are winless in the preseason through two weeks. The NFL is dedicating the 10-year anniversary of “HURRICANE KATRINA”, a storm that went down in the history of our “GREAT COUNTRY”. There is no reason to panic; these games don’t count. New Orleans will be in the thick of the playoff hunt this season. The opening betting line has Houston as a four-point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The betting odds total is 44-points for Sunday’s game.
The Houston Texans recently released safety, Stevie Brown, as NFL organizations are trimming their rosters. Hoyer enters his first season as the starter in Houston after coming over from the Cleveland Browns. O’Brien is familiar with the skill set of Hoyer and backup Ryan Mallett from their day’s in New England. The organization could make a change at any time as a matter of fact Mallett has a higher upside than the starter. The Houston offense will struggle early in the regular season, and changes will be made. Houston will also be without starting running back Arian Foster for a while, there is no timetable for his return. Foster has been often injured since signing a mega contract. All-Pro offensive left tackle Duane Brown will miss the contest wit ha hand injury. There is one certainty on the Houston defense, and that is end J.J. Watt will give everything he has on the field. The former University of Wisconsin star hard work and dedication is paying dividends. 2014 First overall pick Jadeveon Clowney is also back in the mix. Many experts in the NFL, including myself, question the talented defensive end work ethic and love for the game. 2015 first round draft pick Kevin Johnson has impressed the coaching staff and will see extensive playing time Sunday. Safety has been a position of concern, but they will find the right player to fit their schemes. Longtime Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel is one of the best in the league.
The 2015 New Orleans Saints already knows who their starting signal caller will be. Drew Brees is close with the New Orleans community. The former Purdue University All American recently walked home from a Friday Night practice at Tulane University. Brees and head coach Sean Payton want to bring another Superbowl title to New Orleans. The Saints offense is getting used to life without Jimmy Graham, who was dangerous in the “RED ZONE” in the passing game. The Saints have plenty of playmakers at the skill positions. The offseason concern was upgrading the offensive line. The Saints acquired Max Unger from Seattle for Graham and drafted Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat with the thirteenth overall pick. Defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan has more parts to work with including upgrades at linebacker. Dannell Ellerbe comes over from Miami and 2015 second round draft pick Stephone Anthony has impressed in training camp. Veteran cornerback Brandon Browner and safety Kenny Phillips can help in the secondary. The past week the City of New Orleans has been documented, and the Saints want to put an exclamation point on the memory of the disaster.
