This is a marquee match up, the New Orleans Saints are undefeated heading into Soldier Field to face the Chicago Bears. Both teams are looking for a win, but getting to 5-0 will be tough for the Bears.
“You just got to tune out everything outside the locker room and focus on going to play a good opponent this week,” said receiver Marques Colston. “You’ve got to fight against human nature at all times, and 4-0 was obviously the start that we were looking, for but there’s still a lot of football yet to be played.
“So it’s focusing on the reason why we are sitting at 4-0 and just continuing to try to get better.”
The Bears could’ve come into this game undefeated as well. In last Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions, quarterback Jay Cutler threw three interceptions and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. The Bears aren’t expecting a repeat of their mistakes.
“I don’t think what happened (last Sunday) means that it has to happen next week or the week after,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said, via ESPN. “It could, but we’re working to prevent those situations from happening. We got guys committed to do that.”
