Alvin Kamara continued his red-hot rookie campaign with another touchdown, this one coming from eight yards out to make it 7-0.

Last week the Bears managed to win a game without much in the way of offense, thanks to two defensive struggles. As for the total, the number now sits at 47 points after hitting the board at 48.5.

Since the program began seven years ago, about 8.1 million pounds (more than 4,050 tons) of drugs have been collected nationwide. The East Hills site will accept all prescription and over-the counter drugs and substances, including "sharps" such as needles.

And before the fumbles, Ingram and Kamara also played big roles, as they each surpassed 75 yards from scrimmage for the third game in a row. This time, Marshon Lattimore ended the drive with an interception.

Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky heaved the ball and Miller grabbed it but landed awkwardly on his left leg on the way down. As Miller was carted off the field with an apparently serious knee injury, officials ruled that replayed showed the ground caused the ball to loosen in Miller's grasp as his upper body crashed to the turf - after his knee had given out. New Orleans improves to 5-2 on the season, and keeps the top spot in the NFC South.

What seemed to be a touchdown catch for Miller was overturned on the field and ruled an incomplete pass.
