They've dropped four straight at home, also losing to San Francisco, Cincinnati and Baltimore. On the road, they've fared better of late with two straight wins. They won at Carolina on Oct. 30 and at Pittsburgh two weeks ago.
RUN DOWN: The Saints could not stop the run last week. Who knows if they'll have to worry about it this week?
"It's obvious that as a unit we're not playing like we need to,NFL Jerseys Cheap," Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro said. "If everybody's buying in we wouldn't have lost a game."
But if it makes Young feel any better, New Orleans was not exactly planning any celebrations ? not after that wipeout against Carolina last week.
It will be facing one of the league's top running backs in Matt Forte,Wholesale Cheap Jerseys. But the Bears have a total of 23 rushes for 48 yards the past two games even though they keep talking about being more balanced on offense.
That idea vanished weeks ago.
"Aren't they on top of their division right now? And what's their record?" Bears defensive end Willie Young said. "Holy cow. That's love right there, man. They got it made."
RUNNING AGAIN: New Orleans' Khiry Robinson returned to the active roster last week after missing six games with a forearm injury. He did not get any rushing attempts because the Saints fell into an early 17-0 hole. He had 330 yards and averaged 5,Cheap Jerseys For Sale.2 per carry in the first six games before getting injured.
"You would never think we would lose four straight in the Superdome," center Jonathan Goodwin said. "I haven't given up hope on playing at home."
GETTING AWAY: Maybe going on the road isn't such a bad thing for the Saints.
"Some guys are like the No. 1 receiver on their team," Bennett said. "I try not to compare, but I do compete to a certain extent with each guy that's a tight end, because you want to be the top tight end in the league. There's a competition, solid competition, that they don't really know about. But I watch Gronk (New England's Rob Gronkowski). I watch Graham. I watch Delanie Walker down in Tennessee ? all those guys. I'm constantly competing with those guys,China Jerseys Cheap, but it's not like a comparison because each game is different. The game plan for each game is different. What their offense is doing is different from us, but I do compete with them."
The Saints got pounded 41-10 at home, their fourth loss in five games and their worst beating of the season. They can forget about the wild card, but they're still in the playoff hunt, tied with Atlanta for the NFC South lead, with the Falcons visiting next week.
If Young was a tad envious, that's understandable. After all, the Bears are officially out of playoff contention for the seventh time in eight years.
He had a difficult time last week, though. He had his lowest completion percentage this season (59.2), going 29 of 49 for 235 yards with a touchdown and interception.
At least the Saints still have a shot at the playoffs.
Two of the league's leading tight ends will be on display in Bennett and the Saints' Jimmy Graham.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) ? This sure looked like a potential showdown between NFC heavyweights, a made-for-prime-time matchup, when the schedule came out.
TOP TIGHT ENDS: On the one hand, Chicago's Martellus Bennett avoids comparisons to other top tight ends. On the other, he does see himself competing with them.

Both are 5-8, certainly not what they anticipated when the season began.
BOUNCE BACK?: Despite a rough outing against the Panthers,NFL Cheap Jerseys, Brees still leads the league in completion percentage (69.3) and ranks third in yards passing ( 3,983).
Bennett leads NFL tight ends with 77 receptions ? a franchise record for his position ? and is third with 821 yards,Wholesale Jerseys USA. Graham is fourth among tight ends in catches (68) and fifth in yards (695).
New Orleans gave up a season-high 271 yards rushing and 497 of total offense against Carolina, with Jonathan Stewart running for 155 and Cam Newton 83.
Instead, two disappointing teams will be on display when the New Orleans Saints visit the Chicago Bears on Monday night.
The Bears, meanwhile, have dropped two straight and will be without Brandon Marshall for the rest of the season. They placed the five-time Pro Bowl receiver on injured reserve after he broke two ribs and suffered a lung injury last week against Dallas.
Here are some things to look for in this game:
