Chiefs, Saints Defenses Are Similar...At Giving Up A Lot Of Points
 
Last year the Kansas City Chiefs defense started out the season even worse than they did this year, giving up 89 points in two games compared to only (only?) 75 points this year. The good news is that the defense rebounded last year and finished 12th overall.

But what's the New Orleans Saints excuse? They've been as bad as the Chiefs, ranking last in the league right next to KC with 75 points given up in two games.


According to our Saints blog, Canal Street Chronicles, the Saints will get better defensively.
That it isn't as bad as it looks. We haven't looked well in the two games played, but I think that has a lot to do with the defense learning the new scheme and the absence of some of our starters.
The Saints are a pressure defense which is not good news for the Chiefs. Matt Cassel is very poor against pressure so the Chiefs offensive line creating room for him becomes extremely important this week. If they can do that, there will be opportunities to exploit them.
