Saints D dominates Bears in Prime Time!
The New Orleans’ defense has propelled the Saints to a 4-2 mark as they shut down the Bears on Sunday Night Football, 16-7, at Soldier Field.
DB Eric Allen picked off a Rick Mirer pass and dove into the end zone to give the Saints a 7-0 lead midway through the 1st quarter and that was the only TD the Saints needed. Doug Brien kicked 3 FGs the rest of the way to get the win.
The Saints’ defense held the Bears to only one score and 311 yards of total offense. The Saints also forced four Bear turnovers.
The Saints (4-2) will host Atlanta next week, while the Bears (1-5) face the World Champion Packers at Soldier Field.
