Saints-Texans Game Notes

Posted Aug 21, 2010

Saints explode on the scoreboard


 

  • The 38 points scored by the Saints are their most ever in a preseason game in the Superdome and the second-most in a home preseason game in franchise history. On Aug. 24, 1968, the Saints defeated the Cleveland Browns 40-27 at Tulane Stadium. The franchise high for points in a preseason game was achieved a year ago in a 45-7 road victory over Oakland on Aug. 29, 2009.
  • For the second consecutive week, QB Drew Brees played three series. Brees drove the Saints to two touchdowns – a 9-yard run by RB Reggie Bush on the game’s opening drive and a 1-yard quarterback sneak by Brees.
  • QB Chase Daniel started the second quarter for the Saints and played most of the final three quarters. Daniel finished 15 of 21 for 182 yards, three touchdowns, one interception and a passer rating of 117.5.
  • DT Sedrick Ellis had a productive first half, getting a sack of Texans QB Matt Schaub in the first quarter and recovering a fumble in the second quarter.
  • For the second consecutive week, WR Adrian Arrington hauled in the longest play from scrimmage for the Saints. Arrington caught a 48-yard pass from Daniel in the second quarter Saturday night, nine days after a 51-yard catch and run in the preseason opener at New England. Arrington, who finished with three catches for 71 yards, also had a third-quarter touchdown reception from Daniel.
  • The Saints scored 28 first-half points Saturday night, a feat the team achieved four times during the 2009 regular season and playoffs (28 vs. Detroit, 34 vs. N.Y. Giants, 28 vs. Atlanta, 35 vs. Arizona in NFC Divisional Playoff).
  • P Thomas Morstead, who injured his shoulder in the first quarter against New England, returned to action Saturday night. He handled punting and holding duties. K Garrett Hartley handled kickoff duties.
  • For the second consecutive week, the Saints had a scoring drive of more than 10 minutes. The fourth-quarter drive that ended in Hartley’s field goal covered 60 yards, 18 plays and took 10:08 off the clock. Against New England, Brees engineered a 20-play, 86-yard drive that took 10:01.
