After an offseason of waiting the New Orleans Saints have finally arrived at Week 1 of the preseason for their matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

There are plenty of stories to watch heading into the game, especially with the recent injuries to Joe Morgan and Kenyon Coleman. Here we will take the time to highlight some of the things to watch as well as give some insight into the opposition.

Chiefs Player to Watch: Sean Smith

The Chiefs have a new cornerback from the Miami Dolphins by the name of Sean Smith who will slide into a starting role across from Brandon Flowers.

Smith has had a spotty track record to date in the NFL, but all of the physical traits are there for him to turn into one of the NFL’s best corners. He’ll have a task ahead of him in helping deal with Marques Colston and a host of others.

 

Saints Player to Watch: Steve Breaston

With Joe Morgan out for the season someone is going to have to step up and take his place in the slot. One candidate is rookie Kenny Stills, but the Saints could choose to go with a more experienced option.

New Orleans recently brought Steve Breaston to town in order to provide depth for Marques Colston and Morgan. Now that Morgan is officially out for the year Breaston may have a more realistic shot at making contributions the entire season. Keep a close eye on him against the Chiefs.

 

Matchup to Watch: Chiefs Pass Rush vs. Saints Offensive Line

Kansas City has a formidable pass rush thanks to Justin Houston and Tamba Hail at the outside linebacker spots. The Saints are currently attempting to figure out what to do at the left tackle position with Jermon Bushrod gone.

So far this offseason Charles Brown has been holding down the No. 1 spot, but we’re all well aware of his spotty injury history. Behind him you have Jason Smith and rookie Terron Armstead. All are going to see ample amounts of playing time for them to compete for the starting job.

It’s a point of interest to watch more than any other, especially with the pass rush the Chiefs are capable of bringing.

 

Prediction

Making a prediction in the preseason is always tough, especially in Week 1. That said, you have to love the depth the Saints have on the offensive side of things, especially at running back. New Orleans should be able to utilize the committee and grind down the Chiefs backups over the course of the game before ultimately pulling away for the win.

Chiefs 10, Saints 14

    You forgot about our running backs. Jamaal Charles lit you guys up for 233 yds last time we met.

  • octavia a henry

    I bet he want do it again and that’s the only game you guys won that should tell you something about the season we had. Not taking anything away from Charles he is and will be a great RB.

    • chiefridgy

      Hey we won two games. Hahaha

      • octavia a henry

        Y’all will win three this year and we will win 10.

    • superman_25_58

      Has your defense gotten any better?

      • octavia a henry

        What you think” time will tell.

      • octavia a henry

        No they haven’t. Looks like the same old defense different coach.

        • superman_25_58

          Saints is one of the few teams that I don’t mind in the NFL actually. My favorite is KC obviously but yeah our 1st team offense scored a TD on first possession and Brees was held scoreless vs KC 1st team D and Brees wasn’t able to put it in the end zone vs the 2nd team D either. Instead they had to settle for a field goal. I know the score said the saints won but the final score doesn’t matter bc most the guys who played the 2nd half will be cut at the end of the pre-season. We might be in trouble if Alex Smith goes down though.

      • octavia a henry

        You are right I agree I wish KC and Alex smith the best I have no gripes with them either Good Luck to you all.

      • octavia a henry

        Don’t get me wrong I’m a die hard Saints fan Roger Gooddell stuck it to us, but I never want to see any team go through what we had to endure last year. The fans suffered through out the whole ordeal.
