Best Of Social Media: Week 7 Patriots vs BearsQuinn Harris - USA TODAY Sports

In the first quarter, the Patriots got the ball first, as Brady and the offense moved swiftly down the field for the games first touchdown.

The Bears responded with a Cody Parkey 46 yard field goal, but a special teams fumble by Cordarrelle Patterson setup the Bears go ahead touchdown. 10-7 Chicago after one.

The momentum continued to shift Chicago’s way into the second quarter, when running back Sony Michel also turned the ball over on a fumble in what appeared to be a serious knee injury in the moment.

Reports Tuesday later came out saying the injury was “not serious”.

The fumble led to the Bears second touchdown of the game on a running back Jordan Howard two yard run to extend their lead to 10 at 17-7.

Needing to weather the Bears 17-0 scoring run, kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson redeemed his fumble in a big way, returning the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. The Patriots deficit was trimmed to 17-14 at the ten minute mark of the second quarter.

Following a Bears punt, wide receiver Josh Gordon continued his streak of highlight reel receptions. The catch helped setup running back James Whites go-ahead touchdown pass from Tom Brady and a 21-17 halftime lead.

In the second half, quarterback Mitch Trubisky continued to show off his running ability as the Bears regained the lead again courtesy of Tarik Cohen. 24-21 Bears.

Following a 29 yard Stephen Gostkowski field goal to knot the game up at 24 all, the Patriots special teams unite came up big again courtesy of Dont’a Hightower and Kyle Van Noy.

A 31-24 Patriots lead after three quarters following the first blocked punt return for a touchdown in team history for over 20 years.

With the Bears driving to open the fourth quarter, cornerback Jonathan Jones made an incredible leaping interception of Trubiski for the teams second pick of the day.

The pick gave the ball back to Brady, and he made the Bears pay following this deep 55 yard pass to Josh Gordon that setup James White for another touchdown. A 14 point 38-24 lead with 8:40 to go in the game.

The turnovers continued to hurt the Patriots however, as Tom Brady endured another hard luck interception by way of a dropped pass that gave the Bears life.

The Bears cashed in as Trubiski found Trey Burton to make it a one possession game with 4:13 remaining.  38-31.

The Bears had one more chance to send the game to overtime, but it fell just (a yard) short.

The Patriots would escape Chicago with their fourth consecutive win to move to 5-2 on the season. They’ll head to Buffalo for Monday Night Football Next.
