Saints defense gives up early scores
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.
