SAINTS MAUL BEARS, MOVE INTO NFC SOUTH LEAD.
By: Takudzwa Makoni
The Chicago Bears once again flattered to impress, as their much-hyped offence managed to score only 15 points in another nationally televised loss against the
The Soldier Field faithful could only watch in disgust as Drew Brees completed 29 of his 36 attempts for 375 yards and three touchdowns.
The Bears offensive line meanwhile allowed 7 sacks and forced three inteerceptions.
In a matchup of the league’s most disappointing teams, Brees and the Saints showed a little more friskiness than in recent weeks, picking of Chicago’s Jay Cutler on the first drive of the game.
The New Orleans offense was efficient, putting up two 80-plus yard drives for touchdowns in the second quarter. Cutler and this Bears offense couldn’t match the efficiency, as the offensive line continuously crumbled around Cutler.
The Bear’s run game did find some joy, keying what Bears offense there was, however the Saints kept the scoreboard ticking over, and the Bears kept giving away the ball.
Incredible as I may seem, the 6 win Sainta could actually clinch the NFC South with victories over the underwhelming Falcons and Tampa Bay Bucs, paving the way for the first ever division winner with a losing record.
