Lutz's career-long field goal lifts Saints over Texans

Saints’ two-minute defense ‘wasn’t good football,’ is a concern going forward Saints’ two-minute defense ‘wasn’t good football,’ is a concern going forward

The Texans would take a 14-3 lead into halftime before the Saints made a run.

The Saints and Texans open their seasons in New Orleans in a nationally televised "Monday Night Football" game between two playoff hopefuls.

Kelemete was the Texans starting left guard previous year and has a season of experience in the Texans offense to be able to hold his own against the Saints' defense. The runoff began from when the game was stopped, not when Thomas came down with the ball 15 seconds earlier. Having Howard as the left guard would be an improvement in the offensive line, but the Texans will have to make sure he is healthy enough to play before he makes his official debut. Then they offered the Saints the choice of a 10-second runoff or losing a timeout. Alvin Kamara, who had 169 yards from scrimmage, followed with an 11-yard run, and the Saints ran the clock down to 55 seconds before Lutz converted a 47-yarder.

This is the first time the Saints won their season opener since 2013. They mortgaged their future to arguably overpay for stud left tackle Laremy Tunsil, trading two first-round picks and a second to the Dolphins. The extra time likely would have allowed the Saints an extra play opportunity to give them potentially a closer field goal try.
