Saints at the Bears: First Look

On Sunday it’s the Saints at the Bears in what looks to be like a great matchup for both teams, even though the results for both teams in week 4 was massively different. The Bears were beaten badly by Detroit in what might have been a wake-up call for their defense, while the Saints took apart Miami on Monday night in the dome.

Bears Offense: 
Chicago added a couple of weapons to their offense for Jay Cutler who up until last week had looked better than he has in a long time. Cutler already had his go to guys in Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall but the addition of Martellus Bennet and the emergence of second year guy Alshon Jeffrey has made the Bears offense that much more explosive.

Bears Defense:
Reggie Bush made the Bears defense look slow last week, but a healthy Reggie Bush can do that to people. The Bears suffered last week when they had play an offense with a good passing attack that they felt like they needed to stop first, but then the Lions were able to run seemingly at will. The difference this week is that up until this point in the season the Saints rushing game has been suspect at best.

Tomorrow we’ll take a closer look at what the Saints need to do in order to win in Chicago.
 
By the Way: Drew Brees was named the NFC Offensive player of the week for his performance against the Dolphins.
