The Toro Times staff gives their thoughts and final score predictions on the Houston Texans upcoming game against the New Orleans Saints

A three-game winning streak, sounds nice doesn’t it? Winning four of the last five sounds nice too right? Well what if we also said first place in the AFC South?

None of that seemed possible after the terrible start for the Houston Texans, but that is exactly where they sit right now as they are about to host the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints have been up-and-down this season and just fired former defensive coordinator Rob Ryan following their 47-14 defeat at the hands of the Washington Redskins.

For Houston that brings an unknown in terms of defensive scheme, but the good thing for them is the same players will be operating whatever game plan is brought out on Sunday.

Of course, defense will be key on the other side as well as Houston will need everything they can get from their guys to stop this high powered Saints offense. So who comes out on top? Our staff writers take their best shot at guessing the outcome.
