Saints escape with a 20-12 victory over the Bears

Adjust Comment Print

It was the fifth consecutive victory for the Saints.

And when the Saints needed a big play to seal their 20-12 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, it was none other than the 21-year-old rookie who provided it. Drew Brees completed 27 of 38 passes for 331 yards and a touchdown against two interceptions. Chicago converted the first fumble into its only touchdown with 3:43 to go on Tarik Cohen's short dive over a pile of players at the goal line. Mitchell Trubisky completed 4 of 7 passes for 107 yards.

Like the Packers game, it wasn't easy, but the Saints (5-2) did enough to secure the win and their hold of first place in the NFC South. 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.

Kamara's backfield mate, Mark Ingram, also found the end zone, a 1-yard touchdown, extending the Saints lead to 14-3. Both were a part of the Saints' Super Bowl XLIII championship team in 2009.

Chicago had a TD overturned on video review after Zach Miller's 25-yard catch, during which the tight end's left leg bent unnaturally as he landed. The score was overruled by replay, and the Bears settled for a 44-yard field goal.

Today, the Bears' offense looks inept, and it doesn't help the guard Kyle Long has suffered an apparent broken hand.
