  • Preview

The Chicago Bears are facing off against the New Orleans Saints. The Chicago Bears are 8-8 with the 7th seed. The New Orleans Saints went 12-4 for the 2nd seed.

The Chicago Bears got off to a great start with their defense hiding their quarterback woes, but now they're on full display. In order for Chicago to win this game their defense needs to play lights out as well as establishing the run with David Montgomery on the ground is a must. Trubisky has Allen Robinson so the passing game has upside at the very least.

The New Orleans Saints have a great defense as well, but what separates them is their offense which hasn't been what it's been in years past but all of the major pieces on offense are healthy now, so look out.

The Saints have the advantage in almost every way. Allen Robinson will be going up against a tough secondary so I wouldn't hold my breath for Trubisky having a good game. The +10.5 Chicago will probably find a way to ruin but the game should be generally low scoring with two strong defenses and running games so I will take the +10.5 nervously. With the O/U of 48.5, I'm leaning toward the Under for the same reasons I'm taking +10.5 Bears.
