New Orleans will play on Sunday against Chicago at Soldier Field.  The weather for gametime is 40 degrees and dropping to close to 29 degrees in the evening. 

The Saints are a 4 point favorite over the Bears. The team will face offensive challenges without three top contributing wide receivers. Expect a heavy dose of the rushing game from running backs, Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray. The multi-dimensional Kamara will also be a valuable resource for the Saints in their passing attack.
