The Chicago Bears saw a few of their players play well in this game.
1. Cole Kmet
The Chicago Bears have needed a lot more production from the tight end position for a long time and they are starting to get it more from Cole Kmet. When he came out of Notre Dame, he was seen as someone who could become an outstanding player in the NFL.
Well, that is starting to happen regularly which is good news for both Kmet and the Bears. It showed on Sunday afternoon against the Saints too. He made six receptions for 55 yards and he caught two touchdown passes.
Kmet was a big reason that the offense wasn’t a complete disaster in terms of production. The two touchdown receptions made it seem like the Bears were actually in the game although we know they weren’t. We can only hope that Kmet keeps this going into next year.
2. D’Onta Foreman
The Chicago Bears needed to get their running game going and D’Onta Foreman helped them do that on Sunday. Was it this superstar performance? No, it wasn’t. However, he helped the quarterback advance the ball a little bit without as much pressure.
Foreman had 20 carries for 83 yards. He didn’t have a score but he did carry the ball a lot which is important for a team like this. Again, he didn’t dominate like a top NFL running back but he did his job. He will come into the next game feeling good about himself.
The Bears’ defense wasn’t able to hold the Saints to enough points where they won the game but they did play okay. Guys like Jack Sanborn and T.J. Edwards deserve an honorable mention when talking about winners from the game.
