Monday Night Football in the Mercedes Benz Superdome Saints vs Texans Kickoff at 6:10pm

The first game of the Monday Night Football doubleheader is going to be in New Orleans (The Big Easy). The Saints kickoff the year against a promising top AFC team, and both of these offenses should light up the scoreboard. The Saints were once again making a push for the Super Bowl and ended up being eliminated on an unfortunate ending. Houston won the AFC South last season, and are heavy favorites to do so now with the Andrew Luck retirement. Both teams will get an immediate test for Week 1, but the Saints are touchdown favorites at home, where they went 6-2 last season.
