Saints beat Bears 20-12

Adjust Comment Print

In a 20-12 Saints victory, the Bears were driving with a chance to tie late in the fourth quarter.

"They have a really good defense", Saints coach Sean Payton said. The apparent touchdown was then overturned by replay officials.

On the game's opening possession, Chicago's defense was offside on a field goal attempt, putting New Orleans' offense back on the field.

It should result in more than four plays for nine yards from the offense. Brees' final numbers were typically exceptional - he was 23-for-28 for 299 yards and a 111.2 passer rating - but the Saints entered the game with the fourth-highest scoring average of 28.5 points. They're going to hurt us when we play a better team. "We were also making some big plays down the field". The Bears were frigged and should have won the game. Offensively, the Bears like to run and the Saints don't defend the rush very well.

Like the Packers game, it wasn't easy, but the Saints (5-2) did enough to secure the win and their hold of first place in the NFC South. The NFL odds are dealing this road dog too many points and we are happy to take them! Offensive guard Kyle Long suffered a hand injury while fellow lineman Cody Whitehair is dealing with an elbow injury.
