Saints’ Drew Brees tosses a pop a shot touchdown pass to Latavius Murray


NEW ORLEANS – Nothing has come easy for the New Orleans Saints offense against a feisty Chicago Bears defensive front. That was especially true on Drew Brees’ improvised 6-yard touchdown pass to running back Latavius Murray late in the third quarter.

Brees barely got rid of a dump-off pass to Murray after escaping the pocket under heavy pressure when his first couple reads weren’t open. And Murray did an excellent job of turning to look for the ball after delivering a block on the play.

Murray then did the rest of the work for the 6-yard score and a 14-3 lead with 4:08 remaining in the third quarter. The Saints also benefitted from a gift from the Bears’ defense two plays earlier when the Bears jumped offsides on fourth-and-3 to give New Orleans a fresh set of downs.
