The New Orleans Saints won yet another one-score game as they defeated the five-win, Nick Foles-led Chicago Bears in overtime.
Yet again, the New Orleans Saints barely squeezed out a victory.
Their win, defeating the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in overtime, was their fourth one-score victory in a row, having defeated the Lions by six, Chargers by three, Panthers by three and now Bears by three.
As you can tell, the Saints’ victories haven’t come easy to the franchise this season.
Without their superstar receiver Michael Thomas and having had to defend against the Bears No. 1 receiver Allen Robinson, the Saints played well on Sunday afternoon. It was far from perfect, but in the regular season, whatever it takes to get a win is all that matters.
This was also the seventh straight game the Saints have trailed — yes, that’s every game this season. The Saints, after going up 3-0, eventually were tied at 3-3 and then let the Bears briefly take a 10-3 lead.
They went into halftime down 13-10, but it certainly didn’t stay that way. With two New Orleans field goals the only points scored by either team in the third quarter, the Saints were able to regain the lead and never look back.
That said, let’s dive into three takeaways from this underwhelming performance from New Orleans.
