Drew Brees #9 of the New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees Set To Return As Saints Continue Winning Streak With Victory Over Bears [VIDEO]

The New Orleans Saints pulled away with an impressive 36-25 road win against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

The Saints played their fifth game without Hall-of-Fame quarterback Drew Brees. They are 5-0 in those contests, as backup Teddy Bridgewater has admirably held the fort in Brees’ absence. For Sunday’s game against the Bears, the Saints proved they could handle a bit more than just Brees’ absence.

New Orleans also without star running back Alvin Kamara, tight end Jared Cook and two promising young players in wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith and defensive end Trey Hendrickson. Without three of their most important offensive pieces and going against one of the NFL’s top defenses on the road, the Saints accumulated their highest single-game point total of the 2019 season.

With the help of an offense that kept the ball for a total of 38 minutes and 47 seconds, the Saints kept control of the game to bleed out a win against Chicago. With Brees set to return for next week’s game, the Saints are in prime position to continue this hot streak.

Chicago QB Mitch Trubisky has continued to regress in his third season, as he has looked lost on the field and the offense behind him has struggled mightily. Additionally, the defense is no longer forcing takeaways to give the Bears more opportunities.

While last year, the Bears offense and defense were great and the special teams needed improvement, the exact opposite has been the case this year. Kicker Eddy Pineiro has been the cure to what ailed the Bears last year. Thus far, Pineiro has a 9-10 record on field goals and 11-11 on extra points. Kicking has been the only constant for Chicago this season.

“I feel good where I’m at,” Pineiro said. “I am hitting the ball well and just good snaps, good holds, yeah.”

The 3-3 Bears will host the 2-5 Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 27. The 6-1 Saints will go back home to greet the 3-3-1 Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 27.
