Previewing Chiefs vs. Saints

By Bill Williamson

Here are three keys for the Kansas City Chiefs to focus on in Friday’s preseason opener at New Orleans. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m.:

Playing in Andy Reid’s system: The vibes are good in Kansas City. The early reviews of Camp Reid are strong. It will be interesting to see this group play and see where they are under Reid. I expect to be impressed.

Alex Smith: The new starting quarterback is the key for the Chiefs. Reid has raved about Smith. Now, it’s time to see how this partnership will work.

Jonathan Baldwin: This is the third season for the former first-round pick. It is time for Baldwin to start producing.
