Saints vs. Chiefs

The Saints travel to historic Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs tonight. This should be one of the more exciting games of the preseason with the starters playing into the 3rd quarter. That could be bad news for some of the players on the bubble with the first round of cuts looming next week. Playing time for 3rd and 4th stringers will be limited and as we've seen already this week with the cut of QB Matt Baker and OL Jake Kuresa and Nik Sobic, you better impress the coaches when given the opportunity, or you won't be on this team.

It will be interesting to see how some of the wide receivers play tonight. It will be the second game without starters Marques Colston and Devery Henderson, so guys like David Patten, Lance Moore, Terrance Copper, Robert Meachem, etc. will have plenty of opportunities to show their stuff. Fans are hoping to see something out of Meachem, so hopefully, tonight he can showcase his skills.

Other players on the bubble for the roster or practice squad to watch for tonight include RB Pierre Thomas, WR Tramian Hall, CBs David Jones and Joe Porter, and LB Desmond Sims...all have shown signs of good things in training camp and will be among the hardest cuts.
