Bears vs. Saints: 7 Chicago Players Facing the Most Pressure To Perform

The Chicago Bears face their second of three big tests to open the season when they travel to New Orleans to face the Saints on Sunday.

This game, predictably, will feature a top offense vs. a top defense as Urlacher and the immovable Bears try and stop Drew Brees and the unstoppable Saints.  

In recent years, Chicago has had New Orleans' number; Drew Brees is yet to record a victory over the Bears in matchups that have traditionally pitted two teams that are exceptional on one side of the ball and mediocre at best on the other side of the ball against each other.

But this year could change that. The Bears offense, now in its second year under Mike Martz's high-flying system, showed against the Falcons that they can put points on the board and lead the team to a win rather than being dragged into one by the defense and the special teams unit.

The Bears will need certain players to step up and lead the way if they are to top the Saints and move to a 2-0 record.

So, let's take a look at seven Chicago players facing the most pressure to perform in Sunday's contest.
