Saints rolling early at Chicago


The Saints are looking the part of an unbeaten team on Sunday.

With a strong pass rush and passing attack, the Saints have surged to a 20-7 halftime lead at Chicago. Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been sharp, completing 17 of his first 20 passes for 195 yards. Tight end Jimmy Graham has again been exceptional, racking up 106 first-half receiving yards. The Saints’ defense, meanwhile, has sacked Bears quarterback Jay Cutler three times.

Trailing 13-0, the Bears got onto the board with an Alshon Jeffrey TD with less than three minutes left in the second quarter. However, the Saints would come right back, with Pierre Thomas taking a short pass and scoring a 25-yard TD in the final minute of the half.
