Bears Offense Continues To Struggle Against New Orleans

Chicago's offense musters up just 12 points in The Big Easy.

NEW ORLEANS - The Bears were flying high off their back-to-back wins coming into Sunday. When the Saints served up Chicago a big dose of reality with a 20-12 loss. It was the reality that their offense right now is one of the worst in the NFL.

The Bears offense could only muster up 12 points in their loss to New Orleans. Through eight games this season the Bears offense has scored twenty or more points just once. Their win against the Steelers in week three.

Mitch Trubisky has yet to eclipse the 200 passing yard mark. The rookie threw for 164 yards and an interception. 

The offense has a lot to figure out, and they'll have to do so without the services of tight end Zach Miller who dislocated his right knee in the third quarter. The bye week couldn't come at a better time for that unit.

"We've got a chance to get guys well, healthy," says Bears head coach John Fox. We've got some young guys we've plugged in including Mitch. That will give us an opportunity to kind of get up to speed, and get better during that time."

Drew Brees failed to throw a touchdown pass, but was very efficient. Brees went 23/28 for 299 yards. Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara both scored a rushing touchdown.

The Bears are on the bye next week. They will host Green Bay on Sunday, November 11 at Soldier Field.
