    Saints Improve to 2-0 After 2nd Straight Win over NFC North Team

    NEW ORLEANS, la- The Bears were not who we thought they were.​

    The New Orleans Saints dominated the game from the opening kickoff, and for the first time in Drew Brees' career his team defeated the Chicago Bears.​

    It was an emphatic statement by Brees, as he went 17/25 for 291 yards and 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. He also scored on a sneak into the endzone in the first quarter to account for all of the Saints points on the day.​

    "I'll tell you, Drew was as good as I've seen him," said Coach Dunlap.​

    "When he plays at that level it's really fun to watch. I wouldn't want to be on the opposite side when that happens."​

    I'm sure the Bears would echo that sentiment. Their quarterback, Jay Cutler, had to fight through constant pressure from the Saints defense that included six sacks on the day.​

    Cutler finished 18/29 for 236 yards, but no touchdowns and one interception.​

    Their All-Pro halfback Matt Forte tried to carry the team on his shoulders in the second half as he rumbled for a couple of touchdowns on long runs, but it would be too little too late.​

    The Saints would build a 21-0 halftime lead and then cruise in the second half on their way to their second consecutive win against an NFC North opponent.​

    New Orleans now faces a tough test at home from the upstart Houston Texans. Meanwhile the Bears will try to rebound against the Packers.​
