THE FACTS

-The Saints have not allowed any opponent to score 18 or more points on them this season. Already, that's a jump from last year, when just three foes all year were held to 17 or less.

-Chicago's defense is the only one in 2013 that has forced three or more turnovers in every game played so far. Seattle's the only team otherwise to force three in at least three games.

KEY MATCHUP: A thorough pasting of the up-and-coming Dolphins defense (38 points, 465 yards of offense) improves the Saints to a Scoreability rating of 15.53, jumping from 20th to 15th in the league. They'd be higher if Darren Sproles didn't fumble at the two-yard line near the end.

Chicago's allowing 28.5 PPG, in spite of their turnover haul, and the average opponent needs just 94.32 yards to score a touchdown, ninth worst average. Drew Brees plays another mistake-free game, and the Bears will be in trouble.
