The New Orleans Saints notched a big with in Week 3 of the preseason over the Houston Texans. The Saints are now three in a row on the preseason and just defeated a team that figures to be back in playoff contention once more in 2013.
What is most impressive about the victory is the fact New Orleans did it without Drew Brees, so that bodes well for a team that finally sees Brees and head coach Sean Payton reunited.
Saints fans are obviously the best in football, so here is how the world of Twitter reacted after the Saints won the big game.
The Saints start the preseason 3-0 for the first time since 2009. #NOvsHOU
