Thumbs up: Drew Brees

Became third QB ever with 6,000 completions. More importantly, Saints won without him throwing TD pass for first time since 2009.

Thumbs up: Kenny Vaccaro

Team-high nine tackles, sharing a sack with Cam Jordan, and broke up fourth-down Mitchell Trubisky pass on Bears’ penultimate drive.

Thumbs up: Marshon Lattimore

Ended Chicago’s last chance to force overtime when he intercepted Trubisky with 1:11 remaining. Also had three tackles, two deflections.

Thumbs down: Mark Ingram

Led Saints with 75 yards and a TD on 18 carries, but his two fourth-quarter fumbles nearly cost them the game.
