Chicago Bears vs New Orleans Saints Preview
On their day, the Saints are the best team in the NFC but injuries to their key players have stopped them reaching their true potential.
How much they will win this game by comes down to the status of star back Alvin Kamara and whether or not he is cleared to play after missing Week 17 due to COVID.
When these teams met in late October, the Saints were without receiver Michael Thomas but Drew Brees put together a patient performance, continually checking down to Kamara as New Orleans won 26-23 in overtime.
Assuming the Saints are at full go, the Bears will struggle to keep up as their late season revival comes to an end here.
As good as Mitch/Mitchell Trubisky has looked since his return to the starting lineup, the Bears have played two turnover free games all season and that is where the Saints defence will prove to be the difference.
Assuming Kamara plays, I like the Saints by double digits as their inevitable heartbreaking playoff exit is postponed by another week.
