Saints escape with a 20-12 victory over the Bears

WATCH: Bears' Zach Miller Suffers Gruesome Leg Injury During Apparent TD Catch, Refs Take TD Away

But he didn't let it get to his head. A streak that started in Charlotte, continued in London, picked up steam back home vs. the Lions, survived a slow start in Green Bay, reached five games with a 20-12 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Ingram finished with 99 yards from scrimmage, including 75 on the ground, but his two late fumbles kept the Bears in the game into the final minutes. New Orleans improves to 5-2 on the season, and keeps the top spot in the NFC South. And once again, the Saints needed their defense to bail them out. Safety Kenny Vaccaro (two tackles for loss, a half-sack and a pass defensed), defensive end Cameron Jordan (a half-sack and two QB hits) and DE Trey Hendrickson (1.0 sack) were among several others who made big plays in key moments.

The Bears moved the ball better than they have in weeks - picking up 153 yards in total offense in the first half, as many as they gained last week in a 17-3 victory over Carolina - but they bogged down twice inside the Saints' 25-yard line. Kamara had 76 yards from scrimmage - 48 receiving.

On the ground, Mark Ingram rushed for 105 yards and a touchdown in 22 carries while Alvin Kamara added 57 yards in nine attempts.

$70 Yosemite entrance fee: Big increases proposed for parks
Federal law requires that 80 percent of all entrance fees collected at a national park be spent on maintenance at that park. Peak season is winding down at Shenandoah National Park, but next year's busy season could come with a price hike.

No one will ever accuse Sean Payton and Drew Brees of being conservative.

Ingram's second fumble gave the Bears the ball back with 2:12 remaining in the game.
