Brees guides Saints past Chiefs

Aug 24, 2007 - 3:30 AM By Marc Bowman PA SportsTicker Contributing Writer

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Ticker) - The New Orleans Saints were simply dominant in their 30-7 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday.

Quarterback Drew Brees was nearly perfect, completing 17-of-19 passes for 182 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver David Patten. Brees completed his first six passes Thursday and is 36-of-45 for 361 yards in four preseason games.

Running back Reggie Bush led the rushing attack for New Orleans (2-2), carrying the ball six times for 51 yards as the Saints drove into the Chiefs red zone in each of their five first-half possessions.

In the fourth quarter, backup running back Pierre Thomas scored from six and 19 yards out for New Orleans.

Although the Chiefs (0-3) solved part of their offensive puzzle when they signed star running back Larry Johnson to a five-year contract extension Wednesday, they continue to have questions at quarterback.

With Damon Huard missing the game because of a calf injury, Brodie Croyle had a golden opportunity to grab the starting job for himself.

Unfortunately for Croyle, the mistakes which have plagued his preseason continued as he was 5-of-17 for 45 yards and an interception.

In the preseason, Croyle has completed 14-of-33 passes for 171 yards with two interceptions overall.

The Chiefs managed just three first-half first downs.
