The New Orleans Saints still had to prove that they can win on the road in their next game against the Chicago Bears. New Orleans won the time of possession battle, the turnover battle, and eventually the point battle winning 26-18. The defense played solid once again as linebacker Curtis Lofton led the team with 8 tackles. Safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Kenny Vaccaro, along with linebacker David Hawthorne, each recorded a sack on Jay Cutler.
Malcolm Jenkins also forced a fumble early in the game to get the momentum on the Saints side. While Brees’ 300 yard passing streak was broken in this game, the Saints finally demonstrated they could showcase a balanced offense on the road. Here are five things we learned from the New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears game.
