Chiefs beat Saints, 27-21

The Saints missed an opportunity to get back to five hundred and lost to the Chiefs Sunday, 27-21, to fall to 2-4.

Sean Payton's team was uncharacteristically undisciplined in their effort and committed ten penalties for 75 yards. Several of those penalties were pre-snap, some were completely unnecessary like Nick Fairley's personal foul that extended the Chiefs final scoring drive and killed precious time late in the game. 

The Saints also lost the turnover battle. Drew Brees was picked off in the first quarter by Daniel Sorenson, who returned it 48 yards for a touchdown. In the fourth quarter, Mark Ingram fumbled deep in Chiefs territory that negated a scoring drive. 

For the game, Drew Brees was 37/48 for 367 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Mark Ingram led the Saints in rushing with 62 yards on 16 carries. Michael Thomas led all receivers with ten receptions for 130 yards but also contributed to the litany of mistakes by failing to get out of bounds on the final play from scrimmage. 

With the win, the Chiefs improved to 4-2.
