This Sunday’s game between the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints is set to possibly be one of the best games of Week 5.
With Drew Brees and his high powered offense rolling into the Windy City to take on Chicago and their turnover-machine defense, things could get a little nasty. Brees and the Saints haven’t had that much success winning games on the road when it comes to visiting Soldier Field.
“They’re a physical team; they do a lot of things very, very well defensively. You see it in the way they play, what they preach. It’s all about flying to the ball, hitting you hard, trying to get the ball out. They do it better than anybody in the league, so it’s something we’ve got to be prepared for.” Brees told NewOrleansSaints.com
Actually, Brees career passer rating at Soldier Field happens to be 71.3 percent and is also his lowest against any team in their home stadium. So this could either be his chance to turn things around and raise that quarterback rating, or be exactly what the Chicago Bears need, a huge bounce back win.
Early on this season Brees has passed for almost 1,500 yards with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions on a 103.8 passing rating. I would say the odds are in his favor against a defense who has struggled with their passing defense.
