For the first time since a controversial end to the NFC Championship Game, the New Orleans Saints will be taking the field for a game that counts.
The Saints will host the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football to kick off the 2019 season.
New Orleans is coming off a crippling loss to the Rams in the conference title game last season, but boasts high expectations.
The Texans have made headlines as well.
Houston traded two first-round picks for new left tackle Laremy Tunsil.
The Texans are without running back Lamar Miller, who tore his ACL in the preseason.
