Alshon Jeffery Shines, But the Chicago Bears Lose to the New Orleans Saints
The Chicago Bears are currently on a two-game losing streak as they lost to the New Orleans Saints 26-18 on Sunday. After starting the season 3-0 the Bears have failed to execute their offense effectively in the past two games. The Saints’ offense proved to be too much for the Bears and their defense was able to hold the Bears in check, for the most part. One player who shined for the Bears was second-year wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.
Despite the defeat Jeffery was able to have the best game of his career as he had 10 receptions for 218 yards and one touchdown. Jeffery was the one bright spot in a disappointing defeat for the Bears, and he really established himself as a legitimate No. 2 receiver for Jay Cutler. The Saints were not able to stop Jeffery, but they were able to stop everyone else.
The Saints’ defense has been one of the most impressive defenses in the NFL, and no team has been able to score more than 18 points against them. The Saints’ pass rush had a nice showing as they sacked Cutler three times and were able to keep good pressure on him for most of the game.
This was expected to be a tough game for the Bears since the Saints have been one of the best teams in the NFL this season. Next up for the Bears is a Thursday night showdown with the New York Giants. The Giants have yet to win a game this season, but the Bears should still not take them lightly. The Bears need to get back on track and get a win against the Giants because the NFC North division is very strong, and they do not want to miss out on the playoffs again.
