Following nearly a month of training camp practices at the Ochsner Sports Performance Center and opening a preseason with two victories for the first time since 2014, the Saints close out the 2023 NFL Preseason at Caesars Superdome against the Houston Texans on Sunday, Aug. 27, 2023 at 7 p.m. CT.

The Texans look to establish a new identity in 2023 as they went back to their past and hired former 49ers Defensive Coordinator DeMeco Ryans (who played linebacker in Houston from 2006-11) to be their head coach this offseason.

Houston will build around their future franchise cornerstones, quarterback C.J. Stroud out of Ohio State and edge rusher Will Anderson Jr. from Alabama, who they selected second and third overall in the 2023 NFL Draft.

The preparation leading to Sunday night gives the Saints additional opportunities to build chemistry as they prepare for their Week 1 regular season game against the Tennessee Titans at the Caesars Superdome. Additionally, Sunday night will be the last chance for players to make an impression on the team's coaching and scouting staffs before the roster reduction from 90 to 53 players on August 29.



Although Houston entered the NFL as the league's newest franchise via expansion in 2002, the Saints and Texans have a long history in the preseason, as this will be the teams' 12th meeting.
New Orleans has a 5-6 preseason record against Houston, with the most recent contest a 12-13 loss in the 2022 exhibition opener at NRG Stadium.
The Saints and Texans have played five times in the regular season with New Orleans leading the series 3-2. The teams will meet again on October 15 at NRG Stadium.
The clubs first met on September 14, 2003 at the Superdome, a 31-10 Saints win.
The two teams last met in the regular season in Week 1 of the 2019 season on Monday Night Football in the Superdome, with the Saints claiming a 30-28 victory, as QB Drew Brees led a furious fourth-quarter game-winning drive and K Wil Lutz kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired. The win improved New Orleans' regular season record against the Texans at the Superdome to 3-0.
The Texans have a 6-5 lead in the preseason series, with Houston taking the last preseason tilt, a 17-13 victory on August 13, 2022 at NRG Stadium.

I think our performance in week 3 or preseason will be somewhere inbetween what we saw from Denver and LA Rams this week.

Re: Saints vs. Texans Preseason Game Day Thread

We just lowered the price of our tickets to the game tonight to $70 for the pair on Seatgeek.com. I'm sure it has handling fees and such on top of that. If you want them we can transfer them directly to you via text or email for $60 and take payment through Venmo. Wanted to give y'all first shot at the lower price. Normal ticket price per seat runs in the $300 range.

Club Level Section 229 Row 1 Seats 11 & 12



Let me know via PM if interested.

Edit: Sorry! Just sold through Seatgeek.
