CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Two years ago, the 10-6 New Orleans Saints were the biggest surprise in the NFC. Last year, the 13-3 Chicago Bears held that title.
The Saints have taken the title back.
In Week 3's only battle of unbeaten teams, the Bears appeared well on their way to a rare comfortable victory, after squeakers in Weeks 1 and 2. A 20-0 second quarter lead had the Bears' transplanted fans rocking their temporary home at the University of Illinois.
