Drew Brees is back, but Michael Thomas is gone. Can the Saints figure out the rest against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs?

That'll be the question in Week 15 as New Orleans looks to keep pace in the race for the top-seed in the NFC. Brees will start in his first game back from injured reserve due to 11 cracked ribs and a collapsed lung discovered after a win over the 49ers in Week 10.

Taysom Hill started the past four games, winning his first three before a scuffling loss to the Eagles a week ago. But as Brees returns, two of his top targets are done for the rest of the regular season.

Both Thomas and All-Pro kick returner Deonte Harris were sent to IR ahead of this weekend's matchup and will not be eligible to return until the Saints' first playoff matchup.

The showdown with the Chiefs could go a long way in determining when that game will be for the Saints, who have already clinched a playoff berth.

Re: Saints vs Chiefs Game Day Thread

Running game and dink dunk passes play a bigger role today for the Saints. Gotta play keep away from Mahomes.

Preparing a pork roast for the game.

What's on y'all's menu?

Re: Saints vs Chiefs Game Day Thread

Hope DA has a plan to contain Mahones, Tyrek Hill and Kelce ... ok Ill
Settle for keeping contain on Mahones and slow those other 2 down.

Have our OL dominat the run game, time of possession and get Mahones off the field. Keep Brees clean Brees 2.4 release and win baby win.
