Booger McFarland said it best: "It's Monday Night Football, not Monday Night Raw" for Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Brees then completed three passes for 35 yards and the Saints called their final timeout with two seconds left.

The 40-year-old Brees completed 32 of 43 passes. He threw one interception in the first half that could have proved costly.

Houston jumped out to an early 7-0 lead after leading a 7-play 94 yard drive that ended with a 21-yard touchdown run from Deshaun Watson.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta Rolls Out This Thursday
The second Beta test weekend will begin Thursday, September 19 and will be available to players on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta debuts on September 12 on PlayStation 4 and runs through September 16.

On the drive's first play, Watson went deep up the middle, finding Will Fuller, V for a 54-yard gain. Thomas was down around 42 seconds. The Saints had only 16 seconds left when they snapped the ball on their own 47.

Fans in the Superdome, who won't soon forget officiating gaffes in last season's NFC championship game that also went against the Saints, booed as time expired. They mortgaged their future to arguably overpay for stud left tackle Laremy Tunsil, trading two first-round picks and a second to the Dolphins.

Although Howard has the opportunity to make his regular-season debut against the Saints, the Texans could very well err on the side of caution and have him sit out an additional week.
