NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Playing in the Superdome for the first time since the NFC championship game last season, New Orleans' high-powered offense picked up where it left off, rolling over the Houston Texans 38-20 Saturday night.

Drew Brees, who played for only one quarter, led New Orleans to two touchdowns - handing off to Reggie Bush for a 9-yard score and leaping over center for a 1-yard TD that put New Orleans up 14-0.

There was not much drop off when Chase Daniel took over in the second quarter. The Saints outgained Houston 409 yards to 291.
