Will the Bears face the Saints without Drew Brees AND Alvin Kamara?

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees isn't expected to play Sunday at Soldier Field against the Bears as he continues to rehab his thumb injury. Teddy Bridgewater has thrived in his absence, completing over 69% of his passes for 1,089 yards, seven touchdowns and just two interceptions in five games (four starts).

But the engine that makes the Saints offense go is RB Alvin Kamara, who tweaked his knee against the Jaguars Sunday. He was dealing with an ankle injury heading into the game, too, and played his least amount of snaps of any game this season.

New Orleans worked out RB Travaris Cadet on Monday, which at least signals some concern on the team's part that Kamara may not be able to play.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton expressed an interest in having NFL officials become full-time league employees in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio.

"I think, ultimately, we're going to be at some point dealing with full-time officials," Payton said Tuesday. "I don't know that half of our fans even realize most of these guys aren't even full time. I think the game is sped up so much now and we got better angles of it all. Shoot, the video angles of each play...the fans are more educated, so I think we're headed in that direction."

Same jerseys, different team. If it seems as if you New Orleans Saints fans are watching a dissimilar football squad these last few weeks, well, you are.

These new Saints still win, mind you, they just do it differently.

With future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees on the shelf with a sprained throwing thumb, the Saints no longer just zoom up and down the field with Brees’ laser-like passes providing most of the transportation. Now, they depend on a don’t-beat-yourself offense, a terrific defense and, for my money, the best kicking game in football. New Orleans’ special teams are really special.

These Saints are reminding of us of why we call it FOOT-ball. Punter Thomas Morstead and placekicker Wil Lutz have been critical to all victories in the Saints’ 5-1 start.

Ironically, the younger Peat didn’t play peewee football but hit the ground running when he arrived in high school.

As we conduct another version of the NFL Power Rankings, we got to thinking -- what's the one thing that could hold each team back?

Some teams have a lot of flaws to choose from (sorry, Dolphins and Redskins fans). Pinpointing a weakness on other teams might seem a bit nitpicky -- it's kind of hard to take Patriots and 49ers complaints seriously at the moment. But every team has that little imperfection that could hold it back, and our NFL Nation reporters highlight...
