The New Orleans Saints continue their AFC road trip, this time taking on a young Houston Texans team. Here is how the game will go for the Saints.
The New Orleans Saints are flying high after a 34-0 thrashing of the all of a sudden lowly New England Patriots. However, the Saints need to make sure that they stay grounded heading into their week six game against the Houston Texans.
In case you're wondering if they are able to pull this off, you're in luck, as you won't have to wait until Sunday afternoon to find out what happens with the Saints. Of course we have to mention, as with any reading into the future, there's always the potential for quantum leap shenanigans.
Here is your official spoiler alert for the Saints matchup with the Texans. Read on if you dare, for you have been warned.
The Texans are a young team led by a rookie quarterback in C.J. Stroud. Unlike pretty much every Ohio State quarterback that has come into the NFL before him, Stroud looks to be the real deal, and the favorite to take home the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award for 2023.
Of course, Stroud and the Texans haven't played a defense like the Saints, arguably the best in the entire NFL. That will show on Sunday afternoon, as the young signal caller will appear more rattled than he's shown to this point in his rookie season.
Of course, the Texans have some pass rushers on their side as well, such as fellow rookie Will Anderson. The offensive line of the Saints is still (frustratingly) a work in progress, and that too will show on the field in Houston, with the banged up Derek Carr not feeling the most comfortable in the pocket.
As a result, the Saints will win a hard-fought defensive battle by a final score of 23-17, to improve to 4-2 on the season. There is your official New Orleans Saints spoiler for week six. Do with this information what you will.
