STILLS’ SPEED: Saints fifth-round draft choice Kenny Stills had only one catch for 22-yards on a heady adjustment to haul in a back-shoulder pass from Drew Brees . Yet, even when he didn’t catch the ball, Still’s speed gave Kansas City trouble — a promising sign for a team trying to overcome a season-ending injury to deep threat Joseph Morgan.

Before exiting, he led a 10-play, 74-yard march that set up a Garrett Hartley 24-yard field goal in the second quarter. Luke McCown took the bulk of the snaps for New Orleans, completing 18-of-28 throws for 216 yards.

Andy Reid made his coaching debut for the Chiefs after spending 14 largely successful seasons in Philadelphia, and looks to improve on the team’s abysmal 2-14 record in 2012. Alex Smith, who came over in an offseason trade with San Francisco, was excellent on his only drive. He went 7-for-8 and threw for 68 yards, including a 13-yard throw on 3rd-and-6 that set up a 1-yard TD run for Jamaal Charles.

Chiefs vs. Saints: Reaction to New Orleans’ 17-13 preseason win

[+] Enlarge Derick E. Hingle/US Presswire There won’t be any excuses for Mark Ingram this season, as the Saints plan to keep him involved in their running game. Ingrams time?

Saints edge Chiefs in Payton’s return

THQ, the franchise’s former publisher, hired a number of porn stars to promote parts 2 and 3, which bothered more than a few people. Including the people who made the game, as it turns out. In an interview with Edge Online , associate producer Kate Nelson, had this to say: I did not always love how much THQ put an emphasis on porn stars. In Saints Row 2 and Saints Row 3 there was an emphasis on the penthouse girls, and earlier Tera Patrick. I think its important in marketing games to make sure that the essence of the game is whats being marketed, and I think the porn star angle didnt really fit in with what Saints Row is at heart, which is a parody. We like to poke fun. In reference to Tera Patrick, one of the bigger names in the porn business, she was given the title of producer of the game: Even though it was clearly just for show, Nelson and everyone else at the studio was not impressed: “Saying that someone who had no industry experience was in a role that is sexualised as a producer of our project, or saying the penthouse girls are our QA staff I justI can see the humour in that angle of promotion but for me thats the line where it gets into reality.” Nelson asserts, throughout the interview, that all examples of sexism in game is purely for laughs. She also notes women as a whole take on a more proactive role in the upcoming sequel: I think our game actually does represent women in a positive way, but the press will focus on, oh hey, there are strippers, or theres a dildo bat its unfortunate from my perspective that that doesnt come through.
