Kevin White was the best man for the job. The 4-yard loss set up a field goal for the Patriots, who tied the game then at 24-24 in the third quarter. White pulled in the ball at the one-yard line just before Patriots receiver Josh Gordon could get a hand on it from behind him. White's long-awaited redemption story was not meant to be. "Just go out there and make a play if the ball comes your way".

There are, I suppose, a multitude of ways to look at the Bears' loss to New England on Sunday.

The Chicago Bears are catching a huge break with the injury news to New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

It's possible the slight lethargy was due to the lingering hamstring injury that's kept him limited in practice, but Gordon revealed after the game that he was just tired during the drive. As NFL.com's Ian Rapoport revealed, starting running back Sony Michel was carted off the field following an injury to his leg/ankle.

New England also ruled out backup tight end Jacob Hollister, who is dealing with a hamstring injury, as well as defensive ends Geneo Grissom and John Simon. Shoot, they definitely used a Miami-ish type game plan.

"Get to the quarterback", Hicks said. "You gotta talk to [offensive coordinator Josh] McDaniels about it".

"We're just going to keep developing our confidence in one another", he continued. But New England squeezed past the Bears (3-3). He had been one of 10 Patriots players listed as questionable for Sunday's game, but the Patriots on Saturday night officially downgraded him to doubtful.

Finally, on PlayStation alone, Black Ops 4 set a global, new day one record on the PlayStation Store for digital full game sales. Despite being released for just nearly a week, PC hackers already managed to code Black Ops 4 auto aim hack .

Regardless, the Patriots are extremely thin at running back and will need to make a trade this week if Michel is out long-term.

White had 57 yards receiving and two TDs.

With multiple important players on the injury report, Tom Brady and the Patriots are going to face one of the best defenses in the National Football League in the Chicago Bears at less than 100 percent.

The Patriots had four players involved with the pass rush, dropping seven deep into coverage. Star outside linebacker Khalil Mack was limited all week with an ankle injury, and it showed in this game.

"I just missed a tackle".

Chicago's second-year quarterback is still searching for consistency in the passing game. And [White] made a really good play. Bears receivers have to be better for Trubisky in those situations. Gronk didn't even travel with the team to Chicago ahead of their Week 7 game.

"A lot of people were out of rhythm", he said. "We played a little bit better today".
