Finally, the Saints play tonight.  Even though it's only preseason, it's still Saints football.  

We checked with some fans of the Who Dat nation, downtown to find out what they are expecting in tonight's first preseason game for the Black and Gold.  

"I'm expecting a win, even if it's preaseason," said one female Saints fan who already had her black and gold on.  

This man said he'll be tuned in.

"Oh, absolutely," he said.  "Against Cleveland? Yes sir.  I'm expecting the defense to play well."

 "I'd  like to see that new Tennessee running back, Alvin Kamara," this man said.  "Seems like a stud."   

"First of all, I am excited that football is back and I'm expecting that the defense will be improved," said one Saints fan.  "As we know the offense has always been in the top 5, it seems in the last 5 years, so if the defense improves, we'll have something." 

"I can't wait to see Adrian Peterson, because if we run the ball more, that'll take some pressure off of Drew Brees," said another man.       

Another man said a win for the Saints depends on how long the starters play.

"They have to beat Cleveland," he said.  "It's the Browns.  They have no decal on their helmet."

Pregame coverage on WWL begins at 3 pm.  Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
