Patriots Share Their Perspective On Bears’ Heart-Stopping Hail Mary

Adjust Comment Print

There's a new standard, and we love how coach (Matt) Nagy has set the bar high for us.

"I mean, it looked like we tackled him before he got in", Belichick stated flatly.

Tom Brady finished 25-of-36 passing for 277 yards, three touchdowns, and his seventh interception of the season. The defense scuffled for a second straight week, allowing Tom Brady and his offense to control the game. Trubisky's 8-yard run made it 10-7 Bears with 59 seconds left in the first quarter.

After a three-and-out on New England's next drive, they would not see the ball offensively until the Bears had countered with a field goal and (following a fumble on the kickoff) a touchdown. However, with several key Patriots on the mend and Gronk potentially not even present, Khalil Mack and the rest of the Chicago defense should be licking their chops when it comes time to face these Pats. For a reserve player trusted on special teams, Braunecker took this play hard. "I'm glad I was able to get a good touch on the ball and was able to make something happen". He started the game, but finished with just one tackle. "It's just, can't imagine a worse feeling on the football field knowing that you're responsible for something like that". "But it is what it is".

The dramatic finish made the Bears' trouble on special teams all the more painful. This game was played in the comforts of home, and the Bears viewed it as their next opportunity.

Late Saturday afternoon, news came out that Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski did not travel with the team to Chicago due to a back injury.

Canada, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, among other nations, consider the Muslim Brotherhood to be a terrorist group. The Department of International Relations and Cooperation is reportedly unhappy about the meeting.

Trubisky was striving to prove himself playing against a future Hall of Famer in Brady.

"Obviously we take a lot pride in what we do, so we've got to watch the film, correct it and get ready to make some plays coming up the next game", Houston-Carson said.

Instead, Trubisky was off with far too many of his throws and the Bears left points on the field.

"Super tough loss", defensive lineman Akiem Hicks said. "But teammates say that the fourth-year receiver and free-agent signing Allen Robinson are Chicago's best players at high-pointing the ball and using their height (both are 6' 3") to get vertical and pull down that kind of catch.

The Bears were in no mood to take pride in losing only by a score to one of the league's top teams. It was the first time it happened against Chicago since Tom Flynn recovered a punt blocked by Eric Howard in the end zone for the New York Giants on September 14, 1987.
