Bears lose Zach Miller to gruesome leg injury on negated touchdown

30 October 2017

The Bears went for two, but Trubisky's pass in the end zone was broken up by safety Marcus Williams, keeping it a five-point margin.

Per Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com, Benson was taken to Ochsner Hospital following the Saints' 20-12 win over the Chicago Bears but is expected to be OK.

"As far as the call, I thought it was a touchdown, just like everyone else on the sideline", Bears wide receiver Tre McBride III said.

Running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara each ran for touchdowns for New Orleans (5-2).

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. The scoring drive was setup by a Drew Brees to Brandon Coleman 54-yard connection.

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. But they lost 2 yards on three plays and had to settle for Connor Barth's 27-yard field goal, which made it 7-3. New Orleans improves to 5-2 on the season, and keeps the top spot in the NFC South.

Chicago had a TD overturned on video review after Zach Miller's 25-yard catch, during which the tight end's left leg bent unnaturally as he landed.

Instead, upon review, the National Football League decided that it was an incomplete pass, and the Bears settled for a field goal to cut the deficit to 14-6.
