The third week of the 2015 NFL preseason will see the Houston Texans take on the New Orleans Saints on Sunday (August 30). Scheduled at 1 p.m. PST, the New Orleans Saints will be playing host to the Houston Texans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Bearing in mind that the Houston Texans and the New Orleans Saints are also expected to face each other mere weeks after this preseason match for the 2015 NFL regular season, it would be interesting to find out if the NFL teams will be revealing some of their gameplays and strategies in the game this Sunday.
"This is a real opportunity. I would call it an ego-slash-confidence booster for the Saints defense against an offense in Houston that hasn't had a pulse yet," observed NFL scout Chris Landry, according to The Times Picayune. The NFL scout went on to say, "They haven't looked good in any of the practices that I've observed. Bill O'Brien is pulling out what little hair he has left."
In addition, Landry pointed out that the Houston Texans look at Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback due to this number of years of experience in the NFL. However, the NFL scout noted that the veteran status of Hoyer is the only reason he landed the starting quarterback role in Houston Texans as Ryan Mallett has been regarded as "just too far behind."
"So this is a game in which if they're moving the football on the Saints' defense at any point consistently," Landry continued, "then that's a bad sign particularly if they're going to play the starters a great deal and the main backups in sub-package roles." Needless to say, the Houston Texans should get in the field with the New Orleans Saints with more prepared NFL stars and better gameplays and strategies if they want to at least dent the defense of the latter.
Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints are boasting of their up and coming corner back Delvin Breaux. While the New Orleans Saints star remains to be officially identified as the starting corner back for the NFL team, a growing number of fans and followers are becoming aware of his athletic prowess. As for the NFL quarterback to stand in the way of Houston Texans' Hoyer, the New Orleans Saints have Rob Ryan. As per the observations of sports analysts, the New Orleans Saints star can cease every possible opportunity in each NFL game while determining the capacity of the team's linebackers.
