This will easily be the biggest game ever for the Saints. And I think Duece will be the man to lead the charge, right up the middle. I do think this will be a low scoring game, with our defense making key stops, but most likely giving up some big plays in the air. My prediction: New Orleans 17 Chicago 13. Personally I think it will all come down to which Rex plays on Sunday.

Deuce will be on the loose!!! i look for Deuce to gain somewhere between 110 to 150 yards rushing. Bush will have a TD and a couple of big plays. The D is key here as well as how Rex plays!

gonna be a bit snowy in chitown but should not be too bad!

Saints 27
Bears 21

I predict the game will actually rest on how well they deal with Bush. If they focus the defense on Duece and his running and put a LB on Bush then we'll see big play after big play from Bush until they take pressure of Duece in which case you see 5-10 yrd runs from him... Colston and Horn will also be able to keep the defense from playing close in to stop the run but Bush is the wildcard here. So I figure that they aren't going to be able to completely figure out how to stop Bush, Duece, Colston, Horn, AND Henderson which will give us a good amount of points. But with Thomas on Berrian most likely that's a lot of points for them. I say Saints 35 Bears 31. Oh and if bad rex shows up it's Saints 35 Bears 14

How the Saints contain Bernard Berrian will determine the outcome of this game.

So many things could happen tomorrow... Duece and/or Bush run wild, Brees airs it out for 400yds, Benson/Jones run wild, good Rex shows up, bad Rex shows up... etc.

I see a couple key points that will determine the outcome, and no, none of them have anything to do with the weather.

Bears Run Defense - we are having problems stopping it ever since we lost Tommie Harris. But don't be fooled, we still are not giving up as many yards as people might think, but we aren't coming up big in the red zone like we did earlier in the year either, which is where Deuce may make his biggest impact IMO.

Saints Run Defense - The Bears have a more than solid 1-2 punch with Jones and Benson (1,857yds rushing combined), and with the Saints giving up an average of 4.9yds a carry throughout the season it's reasonable to think that the Bears can run at will on them. This not only runs the clock and keeps the ball out of Brees and company's hands, but also keeps our defense fresh.

It's going to be a great game, I'm so pumped to watch this. Win or lose I'm proud of my team this year, as I'm sure you guys are of yours.

Here's to a great game and an NFC Superbowl champion this year!

This will be absolutely huge. If good Rex shows up and regular Fred Thomas shows up, this could be a long day unless Berrian loses a leg to gangrene prior to the game.

What's up with these calls? Are they trying to give the game to the bears? First on the Reverse with Berrian holding onto the guys shoulder, then just now with the kickoff "fumble" Peyton should've have even needed to challenge.

Don't like that call, but the Saints REALLY need to start holding onto the ball.

Let me first say that I am for the Saints all the way here... amazing play by Reggie just now, but how is that not a taunting penalty? Well, I'm happy all thev same... go Saints!
