Saints vs. Texans: What's the Game Plan for New Orleans? | Bleacher Report: After a bye in Week 11, the New Orleans Saints will hit the road to take on the Houston Texans in a Sunday afternoon matchup.

The Saints (4-6) are looking to snap a two-game losing skid, but head coach Sean Payton's club will have to do so in unfriendly territory against a 5-5 Texans squad that has won three straight.

New Orleans, which ranks dead last in the NFL in total defense, will be playing in its first game without former defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Following their 47-14 Week 10 loss to the Washington Redskins, the Saints fired Ryan, who was in the midst of his third season in New Orleans.

I was taken to the far end of the camp, where there was an empty barracks and was put in a chair right in the middle of the room. There were about 15 guys sitting around the room who accused me of being a traitor. They said that I was only looking after the interests of the pro-American internees instead of the pro-Japanese.”
