The Chicago Bears have lost the battle of the 5-8's tonight as they welcomed the New Orleans Saints to Soldier Field in what was anything but a close game.

Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler had a night worthy of forgetting as he was sacked an incredible seven times through the game.

Cutler didn't do much well for most of the night, but the Bears fans at Soldier Field seemed unhappy with their Quarterback as the game came to a close.

Cutler threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter which gave the Bears their first points of the night.

Down 24-0 when Cutler first found the endzone, it meant that the Bears Quarterback would open the question of why he hadn't been doing it all night.


Cutler was sacked seven times, threw three interceptions and had less than 100 yards in the first three quarters.

In the final period, he threw 96 yards, two touchdowns and wasn't intercepted once, showing that he could find a way through the Saints defense.

Not that Cutler can be completely to blame for the Bears third consecutive defeat, their entire offense struggled against the new leaders of the NFC South.

Alshon Jeffrey was the Bears top receiver on the night with 78 yards and a touchdown, but the Bears next high receiver was Ka'Deem Carey with just 39 yards.

Drew Brees shows the Saints quality

Saints Quarterback Drew Brees had an impressive night as he led the Saints to their sixth win of the season.

Brees threw for 375 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception and was sacked twice.

He led the offense to dominant win with Tight-end Josh Hill getting two touchdowns from his two receptions in the game.

Jimmy Graham also had 87 receiving yards and Wide Receiver Marques Colston grabbed the Saints other touchdown pass of the night.

All about the Saints

The Saints now stand at 6-8 and are top of the disappointing NFC South with the Carolina Panthers on 5-8-1 and the Atlanta Falcons on 5-9.

The future of the NFL's worst division is now in New Orleans' hands as they face two divisional matches to end the season.

The Saints host the Falcons and visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to end the season with a win over the Falcons likely to be enough to secure the division.

As for the Bears, their season has been over for a while now and rumours that they may be set to fire head coach Marc Trestman will now continue to grow.

Currently on a three game losing streak, the Bears now have to host the play-off chasing Detroit Lions in their penultimate divisional match of the year.

It is worrying times for the Bears as they sit dead last in the NFC North with the Lions and Green Bay Packers having great seasons.

Even the Minnesota Vikings have shown signs of progression in Mike Zimmer's first season as head coach whilst the Bears are continuing to fall.
