The New Orleans Saints defended their home turn against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1 of preseason action. After trailing 10-0 at halftime, New Orleans cam storming back to win 17-13. In a weird turn of events the first-stringers for the Saints did not look amazing. That turned out to not be an issue as the Saints proved they simply have better depth than the Chiefs.
Here is a look at how the Who Dat nation reacted to the Saints’ big win over the Chiefs.

Awesome first game! Saints win 17-14. Back-up quarterback looks good and we actually have a DEFENSE this season. Welcome back Coach!!!

Special teams and starters still gotta get it together, but the @Saints D looks like it's gonna bring the wood this year!
