Here's a breakdown.
One of the game’s fiercest pass rushers, Jordan is the Bears’ version of Khalil Mack -- a dominant player capable of destroying game plans. He has five sacks this season and is a big reason why the Saints defense has allowed an average of merely 245 total yards, 178 passing yards and 13.3 points per game in their last three victories. Jordan’s presence might compel the Bears to feature the quick passing game, which allows the quarterback to get rid of the ball faster and help Massie so he fares better than Jaguars rookie right tackle Jawaan Taylor – who surrendered two sacks. Expect the Bears to assist Massie with running backs and tight ends too.
He’s not Jalen Ramsey, but Lattimore belongs in the top tier of NFL cornerbacks. Robinson has been the Bears’ most consistent – and only? – offensive weapon this season. How well Lattimore handles this challenge could determine how well the Bears passing game impacts the outcome.
"If they want to talk about Cam Jordan vs. Khalil Mack and different things like that, that’s cool. I’ll ride with my guy every time and I’ll take my guys against any offensive line and any team. So, yeah, it’ll be fun."
--Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins
"Did you guys watch the (Packers-Lions) game last night? I’m not going to be critical of the officials, but some of (the penalties) are phantoms, honest to god."
--Bears offensive line coach Harry Hiestand when asked about left tackle Charles Leno Jr.’s league-leading eight penalties
"You guys will see Sunday, 3:25 Central."
-- Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano when asked how Mack will respond to being held in check by the Raiders
Before this season, the Saints had won just once in their last 18 games when they scored 13 points or fewer. According to the Athletic, they've done that twice in six games this season – a testament to their defense and special teams.
The Saints have outscored their six opponents by a total of six points this season, the smallest overall margin by a 5-1 team after six games since the 1988 Bills, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
The Bears average 3.4 yards per carry. Only three NFL teams have a lower per-carry average – and two of them are winless.
