The Chicago Bears' season has been a complete letdown. Going into their Week 15 matchup, all their fans could do is hope they finish the season strong. That didn't happen as the Bears were blown out by the New Orleans Saints. Here are my five takeaways from the Bears' Week 15 loss.

Matt Forte is still a very good running back. He finished the game with 16 carries for 78 yards and two catches for 21 yards.

Drew Brees threw for 375 yards and three touchdowns. He connected with eight different receivers. The Bears secondary had a rough night.

Yes Jay Cutler is bad, but it doesn’t help that he was sacked seven times.

The Bears were able to provide pressure and sack Drew Brees twice, but it simply wasn’t enough.

There’s not much else to say about Jay Cutler other than that he threw three interceptions and still looks like a mess.
