Trubisky finished 26-of-50 for 333 yards and two touchdowns to go with two interceptions, and both picks came at crucial points in the second half. We are just going to keep developing our confidence in one another, and he's making great plays when I throw him the ball. "In a ideal world, you'd love to get into the end zone for that, but we were a little far away, and into the wind".
There wasn't any new information immediately following the game, but Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio offered a small update later Sunday night. "So after I caught it, I thought I had a chance, like I said, for a split-second and once I felt a bunch of guys I knew it was over". "I wanted to grab it", he said. Somebody else went up to grab it. We have a lot of guys stepping up, making plays, nobody really cares who gets to shine. "Pushing and pulling, and everything like that", he said when asked what happened. "But fortunately enough, we were able to hold them out of the end zone". Trubisky dazzled with his legs, covering over 70 yards on an eight-yard touchdown run and dancing his way to a 39-yard scramble that set up a touchdown in the third quarter.
Van Noy is the first New England player to return a blocked punt for a TD since Tedy Bruschi against Baltimore in 1996.
There were no protests by either team. Gordon had his biggest game yet as a Patriot, finishing with four catches for 100 yards.
Patriots: Michel had to be helped off the field after he got twisted around by Bilal Nichols as he was tackled on the first play of the second quarter. Brady threw another interception on a tough throw to a covered James Develin, and Cordarrelle Patterson lost a fumble on a kick return. But then again: When the Jets come to town next weekend, it'll have been almost a month since the Bears' last win.
