"Best game of the year! Those Saints were awesome," said one Saints fan.
It was a sweet victory and Saints fans couldn't be more excited.
"That was one of the best games I've ever seen the Saints play. Shout out to Alvin Kamara for that first touchdown. That was an explosive run by you," said Saints fan Kelton Hawkins.
Already leading their division, Sunday's win adds another to the Saints' streak.
"Five in a row, baby. Five in a row," yelled one Saints fan.
It has many in the Who Dat Nation optimistic about the rest of the season and postseason.
"We do what we do because the Saints are number one. We going all the way. Playoffs, baby!" said another Saints fan.
Of course, Bears fans weren't happy with the game's outcome.
"The better team didn't win today. It's unfortunate the referees took this one from us, but we're coming. Bear down," said one Bears fan.
"You Saints fans, y'all are not nice people. You can't have me come down to New Orleans, take my money, eat your food and then beat us. That's not fair. That's not right," said Bears fan Archie Hubbard. "But you know, what? You all are wonderful hosts. I'll be back to New Orleans.
Both sides were split on one controversial call in the third quarter, when Bears tight end Zach Miller dislocated his knee in the end zone.
"I thought it was a catch but I'm not going to complain," said one Saints fan.
"It wasn't a catch," said another.
"Everything that we saw, it was a catch and then I texted my brother at home and he said it was a catch so we don't know what happened. It was crazy. It was a bad call," said a Bears fan.
Another Bears fans says the ball was clearly under his arm.
"Even if it touches the ground, as long as you got control, it's a catch," he said.
Yet even Bears fans agreed it was a fun game to watch.
"It was exciting," said one Bears fan.
"It was a fabulous game, good job, everybody," said another.
