Rob Gronkowski Injury Moving Patriots-Bears Line

Marc Carnevale and his son Nick both avid Patriots fans show off their team spirit

The Patriots are more than capable of going into Chicago and getting a win, but the fact that they will be trying to do it without Gronkowski may hinder their plans a bit.

Given Gronkowski's importance to New England's offense, bettors began to hop on the Bears shortly after the news broke.

Patterson fumbled a kick return, giving the Bears the ball at New England's 24-yard line.

The star tight end did not make the trip with the team to Chicago ahead of its clash with the Bears, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source.

Patterson returned four kicks for 179 yards with the touchdown.

Chicago had pulled within 38-31 on an 11-yard score by Burton with 4:13 to go.

LBs DONT'A HIGHTOWER, KYLE VAN NOYWhile we're on the subject of special teams, Hightower and Van Noy deserve mention.




Jackson was flagged three times - twice for illegal hands to the face and once for defensive pass interference.

Jackson later intercepted Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

Gilmore didn't allow a single catch in coverage on four targets.

The Patriots earned their first road victory of the season despite playing most of it without running back Sony Michel, who left in the second quarter with an apparent left knee injury.

Brady completed 25 of 36 passes for 277 yards with two touchdown passes to James White and one to Julian Edelman with one interception.

The New England Patriots officially downgraded tight end Rob Gronkowski to out for their upcoming kickoff Sunday at Chicago.
