Despite going on a six-game losing streak during the season, the Bears (8-8) snuck into the postseason after winning three of their final four games.
The Saints (12-4) were one of the hottest teams in the NFL following Week 3, winning 11 of their last 14 games. Quarterback Drew Brees missed a month of the season with a rib injury, but found his form in the Week 17 win over the Carolina Panthers. The veteran threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns to secure the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
This will be the second matchup of the season between the two teams. Will Lutz kicked a 35-yard field goal in overtime to give New Orleans a 26-23 win over Chicago in Week 8.
