NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - Defense and special teams are making a ton of noise in Chicago between the Saints and Bears. The Black and Gold’s units are doing a little more damage so far, holding on to a slim, 12-10 lead.

A blocked punt, a Vonn Bell fumble recovery, and a Teddy Bridgewater to Josh Hill, 4-yard touchdown gave the Saints enough ammunition to keep a halftime advantage.

The Bears found the end zone once in the first half, courtesy of a Cordarrelle Patterson 102-yard kick return.
