Patrick Robinson Had the Best Catch of the Bears-Saints Monday Night Game

Typically, when it comes to figuring out who has the best catch of the night you look at one of the wide receivers or maybe a tight end. During Monday night's Bears-Saints game it would not have been shocking to see Matt Forte come up with the catch of the night (he has almost 90 after all).Instead the catch of the night belonged to a defensive back, Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson...

Saints Nation Cold Predictions – Bears – Week 15

I am sad… so sad… 3 more weaks (no typo) of this crap. Saints season can be described by this: Bi-polar, as in bi-polar personality disorder. Extremely up one day, extremely down the other.

Forte Does Damage In Passing Attack

For a second consecutive weekend, Bears running back Matt Forte couldn't get anything going on the ground.Fantasy Spin:He was given just 13 carries and totaled an ugly 26 yards. At least he got into the end zone in garbage time. He also caught eight balls for 74 yards which is why he's an elite fantasy running back who can post points whether his team is ahead or behind.
