The Chicago Bears look to end the New Orleans Saints undefeated start to the 2013 regular season on Sunday.
For the Bears, their last game came on the road against the Detroit Lions. The Lions were able to put pressure on Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler and that forced Cutler into making mistakes. On offense, the Lions took advantage of the fact that the Bears’ defense operated from a nickel defense and that allowed for Lions’ running back Reggie Bush to have his way in the running game.
As for the Saints, the team moved their record to 4-0 after defeating the Miami Dolphins on Monday night. In that game, similar to what the Lions did to Cutler, the Saints’ put pressure on Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill and forced Tannehill into making mistakes. On offense, the Saints’ dynamic passing game was too much for the Dolphins to handle.
The game between the Saints and Bears on Sunday figures to be an important one . For the Saints, this is the team’s first of two tough road games as the team plays the New England Patriots next week. For the Bears, this is the first time under head coach Marc Trestman that team is coming off a loss. Under Lovie Smith, the Bears generally were a good bounce-back team after a disappointing loss. Trestman’s team responded nicely in the second half of the Lions’ game and the hope is the team can take that moral victory with them into their game against the Saints.
