Default Why the Texans will get a win against New Orleans.

I wanted to outline some things that I have been thinking about the past day, and why I think the New Orleans game will be a win. Regardless of the outcome. I am not talking about a win in the column, but more of a mental standpoint.

The Texans find themselves in familiar waters coming into the third game of the season. 2 wins and 0 losses and on top of the AFC South. The one glaring difference, is Wade Phillips and the defenses mindset. At this time last year, the Texans were one of the worst defenses. Of course, we thought with time they would get better. Turns out after a 6-10 season, we were wrong.

After nearly pitching a shutout against Indianapolis, and keeping the Dolphins from getting a TD on multiple red zone attempts. The defense is full of confidence heading into a game where the Saints can put up numbers, and in a hurry. I think, the offense is the ones that will have to show up Sunday. This game is going to be close, and a blow out for either side is not coming. Whether the score is 7 to 3 or 45 to 38, the defense is going to keep us in this game, and the offense will have to capitalize off every turnover the defense EARNS.

If it does turn out to be the latter. Then there is no reason to panic, even if Brees puts up 500 yards. There is going to be shoot outs in the course of a season, and there is going to be defensive struggles. (This can be illustrated by the Green Bay Packers last year.)

I think this game is going to come down to, not talent on the rosters, but how each team reacts to momentum shifts. Thoughts?
