Saints vs. Texans: How to watch online, TV schedule, radio and more

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the league's top preseason offenses go head-to-head in Houston.

Neighbors become enemies when the New Orleans Saints take the five-hour trip west to face the Houston Texans in their third preseason game on Sunday.

The Saints and Texans are strange bedfellows when it comes to preseason performance. Boasting the league's top two passing offenses, and each averaging over 20 points per game, Sunday's matchup will be the perfect test for each team's defense.

New Orleans is looking to get back on track with defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was brought over from Dallas to solidify the league's worst defense in 2012. Results have been impressive so far. The unit has allowed just 400 yards in two games, holding teams to only 3.1 yards per carry on the ground.

The Texans find themselves in a similar position defensively, but will be without defensive end Antonio Smith this week. Smith is serving a three-game suspension for striking Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito with his helmet in last week's game.
