Saints 20, Bears 12: Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Aaron Jones

Alvin Kamara continued his red-hot rookie campaign with another touchdown, this one coming from eight yards out to make it 7-0. For now, Ingram remains the team's lead back, but his team bailed him out on Sunday. Kamara's score was set up by a 54-yard reception by Brandon Coleman and an offsides penalty on the Bears that allowed the Saints to keep driving instead of attempting a field goal.

It was a struggle as Mark Ingram fumbled twice in the second half, the first setting up a 1-yard touchdown run by Tarik Cohen that made it 17-12 after the Bears (3-5) failed to convert the 2-point attempt.

Drew Brees finished 23-of-28 passing for 299 yards.

Tom Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans, was hospitalized on Sunday after feeling weak. But on the next three plays, Saints defensive end David Onyemata tackled Jordan Howard for a loss, defensive end Cam Jordan hit Trubisky's arm for an incompletion and defensive end Trey Hendrickson picked up a third-down sack to push Chicago back to the 30.

NOTES: The Saints inducted two new members into their Hall of Fame, LB Jonathan Vilma and G Carl Nicks.

The play was initially ruled a touchdown, but as Miller was carted off the field with his leg in an aircast, a replay review overturned the call and the Bears were forced to settle for a 44-yard Connor Barth field goal.
