The Saints have one of the best records in football, sitting at 5-1. Perhaps even more incredibly, they have managed to do so without star quarterback Drew Brees, who has been out with a thumb injury since leaving early in Week 2. Teddy Bridgewater has been phenomenal to say the least, going 4-0 in his starts, while completing 72 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and just two interceptions. Brees is certainly the starter when he returns from injury, but Bridgwater has done plenty to assert himself as the QB of the future in New Orleans. The Saints have the ninth-ranked passing offense by DVOA, to go along with the 14th-ranked overall defense by DVOA.

Chicago is coming off of a bye week after losing to the Raiders in London. They are 3-2 with a +18 point differential. However the biggest news of the week will be centered around Mitch Trubisky, who missed that game in London, but may be able to return this week with the extra rest time. Chase Daniel played fairly well against the Raiders, and was certainly not the reason the team was unable to secure the win. The line may speak to the lack of difference at QB given that it is posted at all while the status of Trubisky is in question. With that said, the Trubisky news is what you will want to follow throughout the week before wagering on this contest.
