2. The Chicago Bears’ quarterback situation is awful
Speaking of the New Orleans Saints’ defense, the defense should definitely have a great game as it is coming up against a quarterback that the Chicago Bears do not really have full trust in and we don’t even know who is going to start the game.

Whether it is Mitchell Trubisky or Chase Daniel, the Bears’ quarterback situation has been a mess. Trubisky has been suffering from the same problems that Jared Goff has been exhibiting in recent weeks but on a much larger scale.
Not only that, but he has another shoulder issue after missing time with a shoulder injury last season. It has gotten so bad for Trubisky in Chicago that fans are already looking at options aside from him to be the starting quarterback.
If he is not healthy enough to go then it will be Chase Daniel, who is good enough to make one or two great throws a game but simply does not have what it takes to come up against a playoff team and beat them.
This is the first game where Teddy Bridgewater has a significant advantage over the quarterbacks on the other side of the field. Bridgewater does not even need to have an excellent game, either, as his counterparts certainly won’t.
These two factors will give the Saints its fifth win in a row over the Chicago Bears. The last time the Bears defeated the Saints was in an overtime win in 2008.
