Bears vs. Saints: Week 8 Live Game Thread

New, comments

The Bears travel to the Crescent City to take on the Saints just days before Halloween. What’s the over/under on Mike Ditka costumes?

New Orleans Saints v Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears (3-4) come to town to take on the New Orleans Saints (4-2), who have won four straight games after starting the season 0-2. Chicago has won their last two, which was highlighted by a stellar defensive effort against the Panthers. They were able to frustrate Cam Newton and company, and win 17-3 with rookie Mitch Trubisky completing a whopping four passes.

It’ll be the 30th time in NFL history that these two teams square off, with the Bears leading the all-time series 15-14, which includes two postseason showdowns in the 1990 and 2006 season. Chicago won both of those games at Soldier Field.

The Saints are riding a three-game winning streak against the Bears, with victories in 2011, 2013, and 2014. New Orleans is 6-5 at home vs. Chicago, with the last Superdome meeting occurring in 2011 and seeing the Saints emerge as 30-13 victors.

Drew Brees can make NFL History early in this game, as he needs just 12 completions to crack the 6,000 club. He’d be the fastest quarterback to do so, and join Peyton Manning and Brett Favre as the only three to eclipse the mark.
