Chicago Runs Rampant to Beat New England 33-14: Live Game Log – Sports Illustrated

  • October 25, 2022

The New England Patriots return home for Monday night action as they welcome the Chicago Bears. They do so hoping to win their third straight game and move to 4-3 on the season, and remain in the AFC playoff picture. 
The Patriots will also be welcoming back reinforcements as quarterback Mac Jones returns to starting duty after an ankle injury that sidelined him. While rookie Bailey Zappe performed admirably in his absence, this is still Jones' team and his return should provide a boost to the New England offense. 
While Jones makes his return to the lineup, he will be doing so without one of his best weapons, receiver Kendrick Bourne. Bourne was listed as inactive for Monday night while he deals with a turf toe injury. 
Defensively, the Patriots will be tasked with stopping the duo of Bears running backs in David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. Not only do the Bears feature one of the best running back duos in the NFL but quarterback Justin Fields has the ability to hurt defenses with his legs as well. 
Stay tuned for live drive-by-drive updates as the Patriots host the Bears from Gillette Stadium on Monday night.
