NEW ORLEANS - The vaunted 3-4 defense didn't show up for the first quarter of the first preseason game versus the Kansas City Chiefs, allowing two first-quarter scores to an Alex Smith-led KC offense in his first appearance with the team.

The Saints allowed 88 yards, seven first downs, and a Jamaal Charles one-yards touchdown run in the first quarter to fall behind 10-0.

Drew Brees did play into the second quarter to lift New Orleans'  first points on the scoreboard of the night, a 24-yard field goal by Garrett Hartley.

Tune in tonight at 10 for highlights of the New Orleans-Kansas City preseason game.
