The Bears lose their second in a row as Jimmy Graham has yet another 100-yard game.
Drew Brees threw two TDs and Graham tied an NFL record with his fourth consecutive 100-yard game. The Saints won this one 26-18.
"We knew the formula coming into this game was to remain patient, to run the football effectively, to be very efficient in the passing game and to take care of the football, priority No. 1," Brees said, "and we were able to do all those things."
According to The Associated Press, the Saints haven't won in Chicago since 2000. Brees threw for 288 yards on 29-35 passing. Graham had 10 catches for 135 yards, and with his fourth 100-yard game in a row, ties the NFL record for tight ends.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Chicago beat themselves having some pass protection problems, a lost fumble, with six penalties on top of that.
"They deserved to win it, "Bears coach Marc Trestman said. "On our side of it, certainly disappointed in the way we started this game offensively, and that starts with me and accountability to get our guys going the right direction."
