BEST OF MAXIM
The FOX NFL Game of the Week features the New Orleans Saints traveling to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears. As both hold realistic aspirations of claiming the conference crown, let's get the lowdown on each team's subplots heading into this matchup:
FIVE THINGS TO WATCH: NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Darren Sproles: revitalized or one-week wonder?
God bless him, but...
The New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears will meet on Sunday. While the Saints (4-0) are looking to start the season 5-0, the Bears (3-1) are looking to rebound from a disappointing loss in Week 4.
With Sean Payton back on the sidelines the Saints have wiped away the troubles from 2012 while first-year Bears coach Marc Trestman has to Bears playing well.
Coverage of the game between...

Melton is in great hands, there’s no better doctor out there than Andrews.

Brandon Marshall was focused on his own demeanor. He was judging himself by how he handled himself on the sideline Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
And Marshall said he felt proud about how he composed himself during the Bears’ 26-18 loss at Soldier Field.
‘‘Sorry for patting myself on the back’’ Marshall said. ‘‘There’s not too much that I can hang my hat...
Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery had a career game Sunday against the Saints, catching 10 balls for 218 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:Jay Cutler targeted Jeffery 13 times, seven more than any other Bears player. Brandon Marshall has been blanketed by opposing defenses in recent weeks, but the emergence of Jeffery as a dangerous weapon should open things up for Marshall going forward.
The Saints are back.After posting a disappointing 7-9 record a year ago, New Orleans is off to a 4-0 start.With Drew Brees throwing for 4 touchdowns and over 400 yards last Monday Night against Miami, New Orleans is finally playing their best football.Their last two games have been blowouts, and it seems they have come a long way from the last second victory against Tampa Bay back...
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...
The Bears are running very thin at the defensive tackle position. Coming into Sunday's game, the team had been forced to place Henry Melton on Injured Reserve. They will now also be without Stephen Paea, who missed practice all week with a toe injury. Without both Melton and Paea, the Bears defensive front will be a weakspot for the team. Nate Collins and Landon Cohen, both...
I always enjoy playing the Bears because it gives me a chance to interact with my buddy "ChicagoBearJew". We keep in touch throughout the season on twitter even when our teams don't play, but he's my go to source for information on the Bears. Of course I had to get his take on a number of things pertaining to this matchup. He's a must follow on twitter, so be...
Chicago Bears players and coaches discuss today's 26-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Join Bear Report publisher Jeremy Stoltz from the Soldier Field press box throughout today's NFC contest between the Chicago Bears and the New Orleans Saints.
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...
So, ESPN, what are you trying to say here? Is Darren Sproles not a hard worker? Does Danny Woodhead work harder than Darren Sproles? Perhaps there are some racial undertones here as well. Either way, interesting take on the Chargers running back who is a diminutive dynamo.

Chicago’s offensive line was a mess in the first quarter of today’s contest against the New Orleans Saints. The protection issues early put the team in hole, from which they could not recover.
