But he didn't let it get to his head. Marshon Lattimore's interception of Mitchell Trubisky sealed a 20-12 win for the Saints.
The Saints scored on an 8-yard run by Alvin Kamara on the opening possession and a 1-yard run by Ingram later in the first half. New Orleans is 4-2 overall and 4-2 against the spread, with all four of their wins both SU and ATS coming in its last four games.
The Saints had kicked a 32-yard field goal, but Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller was flagged for lining up offside, giving New Orleans a first down.
Despite two lost fumbles by Mark Ingram, the Black and Gold defense kept the Bears in-check. 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. Kamara had 76 yards from scrimmage - 48 receiving.
The Saints will host NFC South rival Tampa Bay (2-5) next Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as they attempt to stretch their winning streak to six games, which would be the team's best since the 2011 season.
Ingram's second fumble gave the Bears the ball back with 2:12 remaining in the game. Fortunately for the Saints, they had already built a 17-6 lead by that point.
