Saints-Chiefs 2013 Recap: Alex Smith Outduels Drew Brees, Saints Win 17-13

Lofton and Vaccaro, wrapping up. Hopefully, not too far downfield. - Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Andy Reid brought his new-look Chiefs to New Orleans tonight to meet the new-look Saints defense with Sean Payton back at the helm of the team for the first time since January 2012. Check the stats here and discuss what you saw in the game and how you feel about the Saints going forward.

The Saints sounded rusty on both sides of the ball early, staking the Chiefs to an early 10-3 lead before giving way to the backups, who eventually scored 14 third-quarter points to take the lead. The Chiefs cut the lead to four points with a fourth-quarter FG, but the teams traded punts before the Saints made a few fourth down conversions to run out the clock to end the game, 17-13.

In the words of Jim Henderson, "it wasn't too sloppy for a first preseason game." and that's about all I've got to say until I actually get to see the game on NFL Network's replay on Saturday at 1:00 pm eastern time.

Stats are below, as is the "Saint of the Game" poll and the comment thread...hit it!
