After a strong performance against Carolina, the defense tumbled back into it’s old ways. They gave up plays of all sizes and natures to New Orleans.

Mark Ingram got 173 yards rushing on the run defense. Brees found multiple receivers for deep plays all night. It was rough to watch, but not unexpected. Even with having injured players like Morgan Burnett and Sam Shields, it was going to be hard to slow the Saints down.

With them back, Packers fans can all hope for a stronger effort. If history is any indication, they should have a strong bounce-back against Chicago. Since he came to Chicago, Jay Cutler has only beaten Green Bay once.

Once?! Yes, once. Surprising maybe, but not when you look at how he played in those games.

Besides losing to them, he always manages to commit some heinous turnovers. Like in the first matchup, where he tossed about a million interceptions – 4 to be exact – including one to Johnny Jolly, who was a defensive tackle. Or this year, where he added two more to the total in a blowout loss to Green Bay in Chicago. All in all, he now has 19 INTs in the 10 Packers games he’s played, a big part of why his record is as bad as it is.

The defense is probably going to get torn apart by Matt Forte, but with the offense expected to produce the game could force Chicago to pass more often against the stronger Packer secondary. That should prove fruitful for Packers fans and their fantasy owners. ‘m expecting a decent outing, and so should you.

Prediction: 23 Points Allowed, 3 Sacks, 3 Turnover Forced (2 INTs, 1 Fumble Recovery)
Verdict: Startable
