Between them, the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears have won eight games, lost three and started four different quarterbacks.

It has not all gone according to plan, but both teams have arrived at this Week 7 juncture not only with their head above water, but in the thick of the NFC playoff picture.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said the first order of business is to get your starting quarterback healthy and keep him involved. Perhaps the Saints had the same mindset.

Not many people would have thought that the New Orleans Saints would win four games in a row after quarterback Drew Brees was lost to a thumb injury. That's exactly what the 5-1 Saints have done though, and are one of only six NFL teams without at least two losses. They now travel to Chicago to take on one of the league's most feared defenses in the 3-2 Bears. Chicago has allowed an average of only 13.8 points per game this season and have forced 10 turnovers.

'Slippery' issue in Saints vs. Bears: Players, coaches ready for grass at Soldier Field

Every variable matters for New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, and this week's detail is the Kentucky Bluegrass at Soldier Field in Chicago.

To the average person, grass is grass. But in football, the difference matters.

"If you're not careful and you wear shoes that are designed for surfaces that we play on down here, you're going to have footing issues," Payton said.

Bermuda grass has a wiry texture, making it resilient. Kentucky Bluegrass on the other hand...

Chuck Pagano calls Raiders loss “wake up call” for Bears defense

  • News source: Josh Alper

Over the first four weeks of the 2019 season, the play of the Bears offense generated a lot more questions than the play of the defense but the latter unit’s last outing caused a little more scrutiny on that side of the ball.

They gave up 169 rushing yards to the Raiders after allowing an average of 61.5 yards in their first four outings and didn’t record a sack after averaging over four a game to open the season. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix said that the performance...

If you're a superstar like the Saints' Michael Thomas or Cam Jordan, extra attention from the other team just part of life

Here is a fact of life if you are one of those game-changing, money-making, super star NFL players: You’re going to get a lot of extra attention, and it won’t just be from the TV cameras and the adoring fans.

In addition to the guy directly in front of you, there’s going to be the other guy somewhere else in your field of vision who is also responsible for you. There’s going to be entire parts of the opposing game plan focused on lessening your impact on the game...

The Saints will be facing one of the best defenses in the NFL on Sunday. And they’ll possibly be missing three of their best offensive players.

Already, quarterback Drew Brees is out as he continues to recover from a thumb injury. Running back Alvin Kamara and/or tight end Jared Cook also may be out.

Kamara has both an ankle injury (which existed before Sunday’s win at Jacksonville) and a knee injury (which didn’t). Cook, who scored the only touchdown in the...

When Drew Brees makes his long-awaited return to NFL competition, he'll also be contending with an extra piece of equipment.

The Saints quarterback said in an interview Bobby Hebert on WWL Radio that he'll have to wear a brace to protect his surgically repaired thumb.

"That's doctor's orders," Brees said in the interview.


The 18-year veteran hasn't played since he suffered a ligament injury during the Saints' loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. He's been...

The New Orleans Saints face the Chicago Bears in the Windy City this week. This battle of top-10 defenses will certainly be a must watch if you love defensive football, but if you prefer high-flying offense you may just have to grit your teeth and bare through this one. Many fans have the perception that Soldier Field is a place the Saints have not had success in, mostly due to the 2006 NFC Championship experience paired with the losses there in 2007 and 2008.

If things keep going on their current track, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton believes the NFL could be on its way toward having full-time officials.

Payton touched on that during an appearance on Brett Favre’s weekly SiriusXM radio show this week, when Favre’s co-host Bruce Murray asked the Saints coach his opinion on how games have been officiated this season.

To preface the question, Murray brought up both the newly reviewable interference calls and the...
