Drew Brees did Drew Brees things, and the Saints won for the fifth consecutive game to move to 5-2 with a 20-12 victory over the Bears. That ties the team’s longest winning streak since 2013.
According to New Orleans running back Mark Ingram, he’s the reason why the game was so close: ''I was terrible. I let my teammates down, put us in a bad position,'' Ingram said. ''The game was only close because I sucked.''
Brees threw for 299 yards on 23-of-28 passing—against a stout Bears passing D, mind you—to become the NFL’s fastest QB to get to 6,000 completions, needing only 240 games to do so.
