The New Orleans Saints are off to a hot start and are looking to continue their undefeated record traveling out to Chicago. The weather in Chicago may not cooperate with them as there is a chance of rain on Sunday. The Saints also have lost their last 3 games in Chicago. The Bears played some clean football in their first 3 wins of the season, but fell apart against the Detroit Lions last week. The offense turned over the football and the defense couldn’t stop the Lions offense.

Saints Player to Watch: Drew Brees

Drew Brees was on fire on Monday Night against the Miami Dolphins. He completed the game with 413 yards passing and 4 touchdowns. A pair of his touchdowns were to his stud tight end Jimmy Graham. He was selected as the NFC’s player of the week for his performance and he will be looking to do it all over again against the Bears.

Bears Player to Watch: Jay Cutler

The Bears offense is going to ride on the success or failure of Jay Cutler. Cutler was good in the first 3 starts, but in his last start against the Lions he threw a couple of touchdowns, but added 3 interceptions and lost a fumble.

Matchup to Watch: Darren Sproles vs. Bears Defense

Darren Sproles scored a couple of touchdowns last week and had seven catches for 114 yards on Monday. He will be going up a defense that gave up 139 rushing yards to Reggie Bush. Both running backs have similar qualities, so Sproles could be looking to have another nice performance against that defense.

Prediction

It is difficult to select against an undefeated team, but with the possibilities of the game getting a little slippery and the game out in Chicago, the home town team will have a little advantage over the Saints passing attack. I think the Bears will control the football and Jay Cutler will bounce back from his performance last week and lead his team to a victory over the undefeated Saints.

Bears  27, Saints 17
