TOP STORYLINE
The Bears head to the "Big Easy" not having allowed a defensive touchdown in consecutive games for the first time since 2005. Rookie safety Eddie Jackson led the effort last Sunday against the Panthers, scoring touchdowns on a 75-yard fumble return and a 76-yard interception return.

BEHIND ENEMY LINES
The Saints (4-2) have recorded four straight wins following an 0-2 start. After losing to the Vikings 29-19 and Patriots 36-20, New Orleans has defeated the Panthers 34-13, Dolphins 20-0, Lions 52-38 and Packers 26-17.

The Saints are led by quarterback Drew Brees. The future Hall of Famer, who has been voted to 10 Pro Bowls in 16 NFL seasons, has completed 69.1 percent of his passes for 1,652 yards with 11 touchdowns, four interceptions and a 100.0 passer rating this year.

NUMBERS GAME
The Bears lead the all-time series with the Saints 15-14 but have lost three straight. The Saints won the last meeting 31-15 on Dec. 15, 2014 at Soldier Field, jumping to a 24-0 lead entering the fourth quarter behind Brees, who passed for 375 yards and three touchdowns in the game.
