The numbers are significant. Last season, Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw 32 touchdown passes, 23 of those at home.

The Saints were 1-5 in road games played on grass.

Sunday the Saints play on grass at Kansas City. Brees said the numbers are not something he “stresses”. He spoke to reporters Wednesday at the Saints facility.

Kickoff Sunday at Kansas City is noon.
