The Bears are sitting at 5-10 right now with Jay Cutler benched and former Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen slinging the pigskin around. If they can find a way to beat the Minnesota Vikings next week on the road, the Saints will slide down to eight overall selection in the draft.

Minnesota looked hot this week with Teddy Bridgewater and the offense coming along strong against a usually good Miami defensive front. They weren’t able to close the game out, which unfortunately is a common problem among the bad teams this year.

If Minnesota loses next week along with the Saints, they will both have the same record. The Saints would still have the lower pick because they had a lower strength of schedule than the Vikings.
