The Patriots looked as good as you possibly could have imagined against the Chicago Bears. The snow did not slow down their game a bit and Tom Brady had one of his best performances of the year. The defense shut down Jay Cutler and the Bears’ offense and forced 4 turnovers including 3 from Cutler. The game looked close from the beginning and both teams looked like they were in for a battle. However, after the 2nd Patriots TD, the game just became out of control. The Patriots rolled to a 36-0 lead and eventually gave up a TD in the 3rd quarter.
It is nice to see all aspects of the Patriots are playing well. It’s also nice to the Patriots not only can hang with any team, but have the ability to beat anyone in the league. We all knew the Patriots offense would be solid and they have been, especially recently. The biggest question as of late is how this defense would handle themselves being so young. They continue to tear it up as well and are playing quality football. Not to mention, against the Bears, the Patriots defense held the Bears to 47 yards rushing and just 152 yards passing. That is quite impressive.
If the Patriots keep this up, they will for sure be the Super Bowl favorites if they are not already.
