The Chicago Bears face a New Orleans Saints franchise that has won the last six match-ups between the two teams, including a 26-23 overtime win this year. But if we’re talking just the postseason, then the Bears are 2-0 all-time against the Saints.
The Bears beat the Saints in 1991 behind the 236 combined scrimmage yards from Neal Anderson and Brad Muster, and they knocked them off in 2006 with Thomas Jones going off for 123 rushing yards on 19 carries and 2 touchdowns.
In order to take that playoff record to 3-0 the Bears will need to play mistake free football and hope for a little luck along the way.
