The New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans meet up in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL preseason at NRG Stadium in Houston. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET and the game will air on FOX-8 in New Orleans and ABC-13 in Houston. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Saints roster and the Texans roster.

The Saints are coming off a season where they finished with a 9-8 regular season record, but they will get Jameis Winston back after playing in just seven games in 2021 due to a torn ACL. Davis Mills will get a great opportunity to prove himself as the Texans’ starting QB in Year 2 as a pro.

The Saints are a 1.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -125 on the moneyline. The Texans are a +105 moneyline underdog. The point total is installed at 33 with -110 odds.
