Houston Texans vs New Orleans Saints Prediction:
Prediction: Texans 16, Saints 13
It’s tough to predict how the Saints will perform under their new coach. Allen hasn’t been a head coach in the past eight years and wasn’t all that successful with the Raiders either. On the other hand, the Texans had a great preseason last year. Though the Saints look apparently stronger, the Texans will take full advantage of their home ground and secure a victory.
