The Saints and Chiefs both go into Week 3 winless, but it looks like the Chiefs will be the team to stay that way when Sunday's action is over.

The Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints will square off at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. Upon completion of the game, the NFL will have one less team without a victory, as both squads enter the game with identical 0-2 records.

While the Chiefs being winless at this juncture isn't a huge surprise, the Saints have lost to the Washington Redskins and Carolina Panthers -- two teams that were widely considered to be inferior to New Orleans prior to the start of the season.

The Saints are notoriously tough at home, and they're chomping at the bit to get their first win of the season. And, while Kansas City is in need of a win as well, New Orleans' situation seems much more dire, and it appears that the pundits agree.

Eric Allen and Mark Schlereth are late getting their picks in this week, but everyone else at ESPN has predicted that the Saints will win. Yahoo! experts currently feel the same way. To complete the sweep for the Saints, all of CBS Sports' football writers are going with New Orleans, as well.
