NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The hometown fans booed quarterback Aaron Brooks in the pregame introductions. They were cheering him by the time the game was over.Brooks threw for two touchdowns as the New Orleans Saints' offense finally showed signs of life in a 31-10 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
They'll be able to score touchdowns if they stick to their game plan and protect QB David Carr.
Question on the Saints: Can this defense get by without Darren Howard?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
