Saints vs. Chiefs 2013: First Half Recap

New, comments

Here's your recap of the first half and your second half open thread, all rolled into one!! Like a delicious pig in a blanket of bacon!!

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints trail the Kansas City Chiefs 10-3 at halftime. So far, the defense sounds about the same as in 2012, allowing the Chiefs to score on their first two drives (including an Alex Smith-led, 14-play, 80 yard drive for a TD to open the game), and the Saints first team offense sputtered a bit before Drew Breeeees!! led them on a 74-yard drive for an effing FG.

I'm saying this to you as much as me: Come in from the ledge, people, it's only the first preseason game.

Check the stats below and then jump into the discussion of the second half!

On a side note, I think odds are that Hokie's going to call Baraka Atkins "Baraka Obama" at least one time in the second half. Right after he says "optimumizing" again.
