But whether it’s him or Chase Daniel behind center, the Bears have to figure out a way to get their ground game going.

Even without Drew Brees, the Saints are still a marquee matchup. And, even with their mild struggles, so are the Bears.

The price to get into Soldier Field for Sunday’s game against the 5-1 Saints is $197 on SeatGeek and $190 on StubHub. The average purchase price in the secondary market has been almost $362, according to TickPick.

That beats the next most expensive game on the Week 7 slate — when Philadelphia visits Dallas on Sunday night — by almost $50.

The Bears look to capitalize off a bye week after they were upset in London by the Raiders. Bears coach Matt Nagy said Monday that he’s been looking for better ways to expand their run game, which ranks four-to-last in the NFL in yards per carry.

The Bears face a defense that helped New Orleans to an NFC Championship Game appearance in 2018, but now rank in the bottom half of the league in run and pass defense.

Quarterback Mitch Trubisky returned to practice on Monday, but his status for Sunday is still unclear. The third-year quarterback has been out suffering a separated left shoulder and torn labrum in the first quarter of the Bears’ eventual 16-6 win over the Vikings on Sept 29.
