While the Texans were on a bye, the Saints allowed St. Louis 37 points, giving the winless Rams their first victory of the season. The Saints scored 26 fourth-quarter points, but it wasn't enough to overcome one of QB Marc Bulger's best games (302 yards, two touchdowns) and the play of RB Steven Jackson, who ran for one touchdown and passed for another.
Texans WR Andre Johnson vs. Saints secondary. The Texans are hoping the return of wide receiver Andre Johnson will give the offense a lift. The Pro Bowl receiver was the NFL's top receiver before going down to a knee injury in Week 2 that forced him out of action for the next seven games. He will face a Saints secondary that is ranked 29th in the league, allowing 251.2 yards per game.
