The 4-2 New Orleans Saints will travel to the Windy City in Week 8 to take on the 5-2 Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.

The Saints enter Week 8 on a three-game winning streak, with wins over the Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Chargers and Carolina Panthers.

The Bears, meanwhile, are coming off a blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football. Chicago looked awful on both sides of the ball.

The Saints are 5-0 against the Bears since 2011. They are favored to win in Chicago by the oddsmakers since the Bears are struggling on offense and the Saints have one of the better offenses in the league with Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara leading the way.

With the Saints-Bears game almost here, let’s take a look at four bold predictions for the contest from a New Orleans perspective.

1. Drew Brees throws for two touchdowns

Drew Brees has thrown for 11 touchdowns on the season and only three picks. He’s completing 72.6 percent of his passes and has thrown for 1,618 yards

The New Orleans Saints came into this season with one of, if not the most talented roster from head to toe in the entire NFL which of course made them one of the few Super Bowl favorites.

Well, with injuries and ineffective play the Saints have had to make some adjustments as the main pieces of their team haven't lived up to expectations.

Last Sunday against the Carolina Panthers the team was missing their main offensive threats in Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders from a receiving perspective. However, Drew Brees and company looked as impressive as they have all season long.

The defensive line hasn't gotten as much pressure as we all would have hoped for as Cameron Jordan has recorded just 1.5 sacks through six games played after recording 15.5 last season. However, The line has still not allowed a 100+ yard rusher since November, 19th 2017 when surprisingly Samaje Perine accomplished it, that's 49 straight games.

New Orleans Saints left tackle Terron Armstead was already playing through a hand injury, and he gave it his best shot to play through an arm injury as well.

He left the field during the Saints’ opening drive against the Carolina Panthers, walking toward the sideline with his arm hanging down by his side. He tried checking back in to play through the pain, but ended up watching most of the game from the sideline with his helmet off.

Armstead played 13 offensive snaps, leaving the Saints to rely on recently reinstated James Hurst for the remainder of the game to protect Drew Brees’ blind...

Michael Thomas, Marquez Callaway, and Terron Armstead were all limited at practice, while Nick Easton still did not practice.

While Michael Thomas returned to practice, he continued to nurse both his ankle and hamstring issues following the injuries.

Following his coronavirus diagnosis, Emmanuel Sanders has a 102 fever, meaning he will definitely miss the Saints’ week 8 game.

Marquez Callaway, wearing the number of Marques Colston, has started to make a name for himself with the New Orleans Saints.

A glare on her left eye.

That’s what prompted little Carly-Faith Davis going to an ophthalmologist at the Vanderbilt Institute for a routine eye exam in May.

Her parents, Demario Davis and Tamela Gill Davis, booked the appointment out of precaution, to alleviate their worries.

“It was just a normal day for us,” the New Orleans Saints’ All-Pro linebacker recalled.

They weren’t supposed to be gone long. The babysitter was watching their three older children, and the Davises said they’d be back in an hour.

But as one hour turned into two, two turned into four, and four turned into nine...

Walker: Saints reflect on Hurricane Zeta, while looking ahead to overcome latest distraction

Alvin Kamara, much like he is on the football field, was quick and to the point when asked to describe his thoughts on Hurricane Zeta.

"Sh--, power went out, it was raining and it was windy," Kamara said.

Kamara grew up in Atlanta, so he's never had to deal with these type of storms.

Drew Brees, on the other hand, knows a thing or two about hurricanes. He's called New Orleans home for the last 15 years.

"They all run together," Brees said. "I feel like we definitely have at least one a year. This year has been a crazy one with the four or five that we have had that have been either...

The Edge: Assessing how New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears stack up for Week 8

  • News source: BY AMIE JUST | Staff writer
  • Replies: 0
The New Orleans Saints hit the road for a two-game road stretch, first taking on the Chicago Bears this weekend at Soldier Field on Sunday afternoon.

Due to a scheduling quirk, this will be the second time in as many seasons where the Saints have played in the Windy City.

The Saints traveled to Chicago to play the Bears last season due to how the Bears won the NFC North in 2018.

This go-round, though, the Saints play all of the NFC North teams — already having played the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions.

With the Saints' 36-25 win last season, the all-time ledger between the...

Khalil Mack, Allen Robinson remain out of Bears practice

Linebacker Khalil Mack has been a regular on Bears injury reports this season due to a couple of different injuries and has usually been a limited participant before playing in each week’s game.

This week is playing out a bit differently. Mack has not practiced at all this week due to an ankle injury. He hurt the ankle in Monday night’s loss to the Rams, but did not leave the game.

Wide receiver Allen Robinson also remained out of practice on Thursday. He is in the concussion protocol and the short week will likely work against his chances of playing against the Saints this weekend...

With the New Orleans Saints matchup against the Chicago Bears just days away, Thursday’s injury report has shed some clarity on players’ potential status. Of note, superstar wide receiver Michael Thomas returned to practice in a limited capacity. Additionally, budding player and undrafted free agent Marquez Callaway also returned to practice after being shaken up against the Carolina Panthers.

The only downside to the report is that offensive lineman Nick Easton was downgraded to “did not practice” after suffering a concussion.

On the Bears, Khalil Mack and Allen Robinson once again did...

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints receiver Michael Thomas returned to practice Thursday, giving him a chance to return to the lineup for the first time since Week 1.

It's still unclear if Thomas (ankle/hamstring) will be able to play Sunday at Chicago. But he was participating in individual drills during the early portion of practice open to the media Thursday -- which is something he did not do last week or on Wednesday of this week.

Thomas, the NFL's reigning Offensive Player of the Year, was originally sidelined by a high ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 1. He appeared close to...

Saints receiver Michael Thomas last played in Week One. It remains to be seen whether he’ll play in Week Eight, at Chicago.

Thomas has taken a step in that direction on Thursday, returning to practice for the first time in eight days.

In addition to the ankle injury Thomas sustained during the first game of the season, Thomas recently has developed a hamstring problem. He was limited last Wednesday before not practicing on Thursday and Friday.

The Saints removed cornerback Ken Crawley from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Crawley went on the list Oct. 23 after close contact with receiver Emmanuel Sanders. He missed Sunday’s victory over the Panthers as a “precaution.”

Crawley has played two games this season, making one tackle. He has seen action on six defensive snaps and 13 on special teams.

The Saints also designated linebacker Chase Hansen to return from injured reserve.

Hansen went on injured reserve Oct. 4 with a hip injury. He has never played a regular-season game.

This Halloween weekend the New Orleans Saints face the Chicago Bears in the Windy City. The Bears and Saints have a back-and-forth history under Payton/Brees. Chicago won the first three matchups, starting with the NFC Championship Game, but the Saints have won the last five in a row, three of which took place in Chicago, including last year. This is not the time to see that pendulum swing.

With teams like the Bucs, Packers, Seahawks, and Rams absorbing the national spotlight in the NFC, the Saints lay in wait, cast aside, presumed dead, but they are far from dead. The Saints now return...
