Chase Daniel's Drew Brees-like showing proves most impressive for New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints' 38-20 exhibition victory against the Houston Texans was his first appearance since he became the official King of New Orleans in February.

But the MVP on this night was another Saints quarterback, Chase Daniel, who put on a Brees-like show, to the delight of the sellout crowd of 70,025.
