Game recap: New Orleans Saints smother Chicago Bears 36-25 as defense delivers another strong performance

Chicago - Just like the vast expanse of fog that blanketed downtown Chicago and Soldier Field on Sunday afternoon, the New Orleans Saints defense, clad again in their all-white uniforms, swallowed another NFL offense, this time the Chicago Bears and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

It was the fourth consecutive game the defense has suffocated an opposing offense, strangling any signs of life with a strong pass rush, sure tackling and step-for-step pass coverage. After holding Dallas, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville to an average of 245 yards per game, the defense stayed the course vs. the Bears, limiting them to 252 yards of offense. It took the Bears until the fourth quarter to break the 100-yard mark.

The result: a 36-25 victory, the team's fifth consecutive. Sunday's result - which wasn't as close as the final score indicated, the Bears (3-3) recovered an onside kick late in the game - was all the more impressive considering which players weren't on the field. Franchise quarterback Drew Brees missed his fifth consecutive game and he was joined on the sideline by star running back Alvin Kamara and tight end Jared Cook, the team's prized pickup in free agency. ...

Breakdown of duties for NFL game officials

  • News source: Rene Nadeau
  • Replies: 0
Much like many NFL and college football fanatics, you worry about the quality of officiating. It’s all contingent on human decisions. There is a push to make officials on the NFL level full time. Will that solve all the problems? The human error scenario will always enter into it.

For those ardent fans watching the action, I thought that this may be an opportune time to give you a little history of NFL officiating and explain what their responsibilities entail...

Drew Brees planning to practice this week

  • News source: Josh Alper
  • Replies: 0
The Saints moved to 6-1 with Sunday’s 36-25 win in Chicago and they have gotten the last five of those wins without quarterback Drew Brees in the lineup.

That record is a testament to how well Bridgewater has done in Brees’s absence. That absence appears to be nearing its end, however.

Brees’s recovery from a right thumb injury progressed to working with a regulation-sized football this week and he told Mike Triplett of that he plans to practice this week...

Rod Walker: Let's just give Sean Payton the Coach of the Year award now after big win vs. Bears

CHICAGO — Just go ahead and start etching Sean Payton's name onto the Coach of the Year award already.

Even if Bill Belichick's New England Patriots or Kyle Shanahan's San Francisco 49ers finish the regular season undefeated, give it to Payton.

Nothing Belichick and Shanahan have done or will do this season will trump what Payton has somehow been able to pull off these past five weeks.

Just when you thought the New Orleans Saints had done the unthinkable by...

Saints by the Numbers: Only garbage time spoils Saints’ stellar defensive effort

  • News source: Lenny Vangilder
  • Replies: 0
Only a pair of effectively meaningless late touchdown drives by the Chicago Bears denied the Saints defense an even better statistical effort than they produced Sunday in an impressive victory.

The two Bears touchdowns in the final 2:31 were the first allowed by the Saints defense since the fourth quarter of the Tampa Bay game.

It has been 19 years since New Orleans has gone back-to-back games without allowing an offensive touchdown (the Bears’ first TD came on a...

With Alvin Kamara out, Latavius Murray stepped up in a big way with 119 rushing vs Chicago

CHICAGO — It was Latavius Murray’s turn in the New Orleans Saints’ backfield.

Coming into Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, he hadn’t had much of a chance to show what he could do. He was coming off his best game in a Saints uniform last week, but he still only had 11 touches.

Sunday against Chicago, with star running back Alvin Kamara sidelined by an ankle injury, Murray needed to be more. He needed to be The Man, and he needed to do it against one of the...

Saints march on without slew of starters, top Bears at home

CHICAGO — It didn't matter that the New Orleans Saints didn't have quarterback Drew Brees, running back Alvin Kamara or tight end Jared Cook.

The Saints marched on, topping the Chicago Bears 36-25 to move to 6-1 on the year and 5-0 without Brees.

It wasn't smooth sailing near the end, though.

The Bears recovered one onside kick, scoring a late touchdown to pull within 11 points and nearly recovered a second one with 46 seconds to play.

To add insult to injury...

When discussions begin about football games, everyone talks about and compares offenses and defenses. Seldom do they discuss the third and very important aspect of the game.

The kicking game was a focal point Sunday at Soldier Field.

CHICAGO -- The "plan" is for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees to return from his thumb injury in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to Sunday’s FOX broadcast.

But, man oh man, do these Saints just continue to prove each week that they’re going to be alright if he doesn’t rush back.

The New Orleans Saints (6-1) have been winning in many different ways since their Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees was injured in week two. Today in Chicago, the Saints were facing their toughest challenge since Brees has been sidelined, a rested Chicago Bears (3-3) team coming off its bye.

No Drew Brees? No problem.

That would have sounded crazy to say about the Saints when Brees suffered the thumb injury that knocked him out for much of this season, but the Saints dominated the Bears 36-25 today and improved to 5-0 in games Teddy Bridgewater has started this season.

Bridgewater completed 23 of 38 passes for 281 yards, with two touchdowns and no turnovers. He played very well against a good Bears defense, and showed that the Saints are just fine with...

CHICAGO — Might as well give New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton the NFL Coach of the Year award now.

The extremely short-handed Saints went in to a difficult venue and absolutely demolished a Bears team that was coming off a bye.

We start with that thought here in our top observations from the fifth consecutive Saints win.
