Season openers aren't must-wins, but this Saints' victory sure felt like one
 
1 Attachment(s)
If the Saints hadn't pulled this one out, Sean Payton should've just asked NFL commissioner Roger Goodell if the league could just schedule their bye week the first week of the season.

Or heck, just go ahead and give the Saints a loss in Week 1 and just let them play a 15-game schedule.

But, there's no need for that now.

The Saints finally shook off their season-opening blues, thanks to Wil Lutz' game-winning 58-yard field goal as time expired for a heart-stopping 30-28 victory over the Houston Texans.

It was their first season-opening win since 2013.

"It's hard to believe, right?" said Drew Brees. "It's great to start the season off with a win, start in the positive. Obviously we know the stretch of games we have coming up here."

It's hard to say a win in Week 1 is a must win. But considering the Saints have back-to-back upcoming games on the West Coast to play the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks, followed by a home game against the Dallas Cowboys, the Saints desperately needed this one.

None of those next three games will be easy.

And neither was this one.

The good news is the Saints get David Onyemata, a key cog up front on defense, back next week.

It was a must win, otherwise we were probably headed to 0-4 again.

They had better bring their best game again if they want to win another game against them. We can beat these guys. We just have to keep the throttle down and the other foot on their throat!
