But he didn't let it get to his head.

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.

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.

Management had guided for third-quarter operating income to be between a loss of $400 million and a gain of $300 million. Shares in Amazon on Thursday, slightly down at the close, bounced some 6% after hours with the decisive earnings beat.


The New Orleans Saints (4-2) are riding in a four-game winning streak after beating the Green Bay Packers, 26-17, last week. Ingram finished with 99 yards from scrimmage, including 75 on the ground, but his two late fumbles kept the Bears in the game into the final minutes. And once again, the Saints needed their defense to bail them out.

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 Black and Gold defense held Chicago in-check with a Kenny Vaccaro pass breakup on 4th-and-1. Chicago converted the first fumble into its only touchdown with 3:43 to go on Tarik Cohen's short dive over a pile of players at the goal line. As for the total, the number now sits at 47 points after hitting the board at 48.5.

No one will ever accuse Sean Payton and Drew Brees of being conservative. For now, Ingram remains the team's lead back, but his team bailed him out on Sunday.
