A pair of 0-2 teams with struggling defenses meet in Week 3, as the Kansas City Chiefs head on the road to take on Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.

Through the first two games of the season, Kansas City's defense has given up a staggering 75 points, losing 40-24 in Week 1 before falling 35-17 in Week 2. On Sunday, Romeo Crennel's defense will have the tough task of stopping Brees and New Orleans' potent offense.

Luckily for Crennel, New Orleans' defense has also given up 75 points through the first two weeks of the season. The Saints fell 40-32 to the Redskins in Week 1, and dropped Week 2's contest, 35-27, to the Panthers.

Though the Saints are 0-2, Brees has thrown for 664 yards through the first two games. Brees, though, has thrown four interceptions to go along with his four touchdown passes.

Kansas City should be able to run the ball against New Orleans, as the Saints boast the league's worst run defense through the first two weeks of the year, allowing 186 rushing yards per game on the ground.

Kickoff is scheduled for noon CT at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Televised coverage can be found on CBS.
