The New Orleans Saints are on the road for the second week in a row as they look to win their fifth game in a row over the Chicago Bears.
Coming into Chicago with not ideal conditions? That is the situation that every Bear fan dreams of when they are taking on a team as talented as the New Orleans Saints. The Bears are one of the toughest teams to beat on the road and the Saints are going to prove just how good they are in this game.
A loss is not that concerning, as they had to lose eventually without Brees and it is acceptable if it were to come in this game. However, a win, especially a definitive one, would prove that they should indeed be the favorites in the NFC.
The Saints already have tough wins under their belt without Brees. The team went into Seattle in rainy conditions and bested the 5-1 Seattle Seahawks. They also held the Dallas Cowboys to 10 points. Dallas has not won since.
The Saints are hoping for another road showing like the one they had in Seattle. If they are going to get that result then these three things must happen for the team.
