Week 5 NFL preview: Saints vs. Bears

New, comment

The rejuvenated and undefeated Saints travel to Chicago, where the Bears are reeling from an embarrassing Week 4 loss to Detroit. Matt Ufford marvels at the wonders of Drew Brees and previews this key NFC matchup.

The New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears square off in a rematch of the 2007 NFC Championship game -- how did Rex Grossman ever beat Drew Brees? The Saints are off to a hot 4-0 start with Sean Payton back on the sideline, and Brees will yet again add to the record books if he can get his 11th consecutive 300-yard passing game. The Bears have given up at least 30 points in two of the last three weeks and could be in trouble against an offense that demolished the then-undefeated Dolphins last Monday night.
