Saints WR Brandin Cooks said he is looking forward to Sunday's rematch against the Chiefs' standout young CB Marcus Peters. The two of them went head-to-head in college in 2013, with Cooks at Oregon State and Peters at Washington. Cooks finished with 10 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown, but mostly while playing catch-up in a 69-27 loss to the Huskies. Peters had two interceptions, a forced fumble and three pass defenses. "It was a battle," Cooks said. "One of those battles, I guess you're going back and forth on punches as you would say in boxing terms. But it was a great one. He made some plays, I made some plays. It was one of those, you remember that game and you build off it."

Chiefs' secondary will cause problems for Saints (0:29)

Drew Brees said he doesn't think Chiefs QB Alex Smith gets the respect he deserves. … I think he's a very, very good football player. (Probably doesn't hurt that Smith led the 49ers to a gut-wrenching playoff win over the Saints the last time they met up in January 2012).
