The New Orleans Saints finish off the most brutal part of the schedule. Admittedly, a 3-3 record at this point would be an absolute success. Starting with this game against the Chicago Bears, things get a lot easier. Of course, no game in the NFL is a gimme. Be that as it may, out of the next 10 games only ONE team made the playoffs last year: The Atlanta Falcons. It’s almost to good to be true. But that’s the incomprehensible truth. The Saints got a gift here.

Playing the Atlanta Falcons twice in three weeks will be very tough. Also, the NFC South is gonna be a lot tougher this year. That being said, the Saints will likely be favorites in many of these remaining games. Six of the last ten will be at home as well.

Now the Saints play the Chicago Bears at home. The Bears were 3-13 last year. As a result, they severed ties with longtime QB Jay Cutler. The Bears drafted their quarterback of the future Mitchell Trubisky from North Carolina. Strangely enough, they also added Mike Glennon for big money.

Regardless, the Saints are just way too talented to drop this game at home.

Final: Saints 49 Bears 27
