The Saints travel to Chicago and try to take down the Bears. Week 5 picks.

The Saints are back on track this season standing at 4-0.  The Bears are looking solid under their new coach, but they are in a tough division. After a rough Week 3 we were able to get back on track with a 12-3 week 4 performance.  That puts us at 48-15 for the season, better than all of the ESPN Experts. Week 5 is gives us some more tough match-ups.  Let's stay above...

Saints' clock control a factor in 5-0 start

For Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints, time of possession is of the essence. ''It's an important statistic,'' Payton said Monday, acknowledging the role that his team's ability to control the clock has played in its 5-0 start. The Saints' fourth-ranked offense has had the ball for an average of 34:37 per game, which led the NFL heading into Monday...

Steve Gleason interviews Pearl Jam in emotional ESPN Segment

Music and sports don’t often find themselves together, but when they do it’s beautiful. Steve Gleason was a safety for the New Orleans Saints, known mostly for his blocked punt in 2006 that was used as a symbol for the resurgence of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. In 2011 he was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Given two...

Vote: Which Saints’ Weapon Concerns You the Most?

Coming off their first loss of the season, the Patriots will host New Orleans in Week 6, hoping to put a stop to the Saints’ undefeated start. While New England’s offensive woes were on full display against Cincinnati, it is their defense that will be faced with an even harder task — stopping the many weapons that comprise the Saints offense. Jimmy Graham, who is on a record...

Reunited Saints sitting at perfect 5-0 record

The New Orleans Saints are now one of three teams in the NFL to be a perfect 5-0 on the season after Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. More promising for the immediate future, The Black and Gold is the only unbeaten team in the NFC, after Seattle fell to Indianapolis. Saints fans may be reveling in perfection, frenzied by the fact that 90 percent of teams...

Saints Nation: Saints Pick Up Valuable Win on the Road 26-18 at Bears, Still Unbeaten at 5-0

After a fantastic first half, maybe the best of the season, the Saints played some ugly and mostly conservative football to hang on 26-18 (led 20-7 at halftime). But a win is a win, particularly on the road with a field like that. Soldier Field was in horrific condition and footing was very difficult, affecting the offense negatively. Drew Brees played very smart and efficiently...

Brees, Saints beat Bears, go to 5-0

Brees threw two touchdown passes, Graham tied an NFL record with another 100-yard game and the Saints beat the Bears 26-18 on Sunday to remain unbeaten. Brees was 29-of-35 passing for 288 yards in his first victory in four career games at Soldier Field. Garrett Hartley matched a...

Drew Brees, Tom Brady see streaks come to an end on Sunday

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees and New England Patriots QB Tom Brady both saw some long running streaks come to an end on Sunday. Both players were on the road. Brees was trying to break his own record while Brady was trying to continue his assault on a touchdown record. Drew Brees tied his own record last week, throwing for 300 or more yards in his ninth consecutive game. After...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Bears

The offense didn't have one of their best performances by any means, but got the job done. The offensive line continues to be the achilles heel of the entire team, but they had a mediocre game this week which I view as an improvement. The running game was decent early, just good enough to force the Bears to passively pay attention to it. That helped the passing game and protection...

Packers beat Lions with defense; Bears fall

The Packers needed defense to stifle the Lions at Lambeau Field while the Bears couldn’t find enough defense on Jimmy Graham and the Saints at Soldier Field.

Bears O-line comes up short again
