Quick Take: Brees, Schaub sharp in shootout

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Saturday's preseason games

» This game looked like a continuation of the shootout between these two teams last regular season. The score was 24-24 at halftime before the starters exited.

» Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub completed an extremely sharp preseason. He was 15-of-18 for 194 yards and a score. No quarterback has looked more accurate or sharper in August.

» New Orleans Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromertook his spin at the wheel as coach for this game. Drew Brees has a way of making any coach look pretty smart.

» Chris Ivory should have helped lock up his roster spot with 57 rushng yards on eight carries.
