The Bears are no longer undefeated after a disappointing loss on last Sunday to the Lions. They take on the New Orleans Saints who are firing on all cylinders and remain undefeated, on Sunday October 6th. They are now battling injuries to key players on the defensive side and will look to prove themselves against a high Caliber team. They take on the Giants on the 10th, which should be an easy win as long as the Giants keep on playing how they have been this season. The Blackhawks beat the Capitals in the season Opener and showed diverse offensive power with six different players getting on the score sheet. This was an exciting win that cumulated with Johhny Oduya, Brandon Saad, and Marian Hossa all scoring in the third period to kick off their title defense with a come-from-behind 6-4 win. The crowd was a raging 22,158 fans cheering on last season’s champs as they presented the championship banner, having it raised to the rafters as the crowd went wild. They look to build on their positive start on Saturday the 5th against the Lightning. The Bulls travel to Indiana that same Saturday for the preseason opener, which will feature Derrick Rose’s return to the NBA floor. The “Windy City Assassin” spent his birthday (the 4th) just relaxing at home with his son, and has said that he plans on holding nothing back on the court and playing hard like any other game. Thibodeau expects them to play well and will be focusing more on Rose’s rhythm and feel for the game. It is also important to note that Northwestern plays the Ohio State Buckeyes this Saturday, biggest game they have had in about 15 years. It would be great to see a big Wildcat upset on Game Day.
