Patriots vs. Bears Score: Justin Fields ruined Bailey Zappe’s return to lineup as Chicago went mad with ‘MNF’.

The Patriots entered “Monday Night Football” by 8.5 points over the Bears, who are aiming for a three-game losing streak at Mac Jones, who returned to the lineup after a three-game absence. They left rookie Bailey Zappe down center and the Bill Belichick defense was the best performance of Justin Fields’ young Bears career. Despite Zappe’s stance briefly burning the Gillette Stadium crowd with a passing attack from New England, Fields stole the show from the quarterback and made headlines in a multi-faceted ground game as Chicago turned 33-14 in prime time. The ankle sprain was less than a quarter before Belichick benched him following an ugly second-quarter interception. But Zappe’s energy has been a huge boon for the Pats after a run-of-the-point drive to start his night. New England didn’t record their 10th down until the fourth quarter, allowing three turnovers, including a poor handoff to Jakobi Meyers and backbreaking interceptions to Roquan Smith and Kyler Gordon. To literally run away with victory, here are a few points from Monday night’s big Bears embarrassment: Why The Bears Win They finally figured out how to put Fields in a position to win. Like the Giants with Daniel Jones, Chicago had his young QB lean on his legs and the signal caller showed extra effort and elite vision in a carry designed to speed up a dash attack featuring a rough touch from David Montgomery and David Montgomery. gave Khalil Herbert. In the meantime, he hit enough downfield shots, including a tight shot from Cole Kmet, to put the Patriots in tension. Simply put, the Bears were created to win old-school football and on Monday they helped arguably their best player, QB, do so. Matt Eberflus’ defense has also been a huge help in many ways. night. Jaquan Brisker’s selection of Mac Jones forced New England’s QB change, and after Zappe’s initial spark, his unit basically honed to eliminate Rhammondre Stevenson and Damien Harris, the Pats’ usually powerful 1-2 punches. into the debilitated one of action. Roquan Smith’s heads-up play barely made the fourth Zappe, but Kyler Gordon’s INT prevented it. Why the Patriots Lose The sidelines floated as if waiting for a momentary call to restart the game. They couldn’t move the ball to any rhythm, and they couldn’t stop the Bears’ trio ground fight. QB Switch seemed like a genius at first. Rookie Zappe threw downfield with confidence and DeVante Parker played for the young signal caller. However, the three-and-outs then led the unit to ruin, eventually leaving Zappe’s orders almost out of pocket. His wrong choices erased a potential comeback. It didn’t help that the line didn’t pave the way for serious momentum from either Stevenson or Harris overnight either. Defensively, the Pats’ less inspiring night was probably even more surprising. Despite Matthew Judon’s more flash (2.5 sacks), there was no answer to blocking Fields when QB explodes out of pocket. And their tackle left a bit of a disappointment in the red zone with Montgomery and Herbert moving forward. Their own 39. However, the wrong handoff from Zappe to Meyers dropped the ball to the floor and Justin Jones recovered and took possession of the Chicago bonus. After Fields delivered a quick strike to Darnell Mooney, the Bears extended the lead before taking a break with a field goal and never looked back. GAMEPLAY Fields and Khalil Herbert deserve props for hand-eye coordination in the Screen Pass TD through the traffic jam. , but Bears rookie safety Jaquan Brisker showed some serious hops and hands in choosing Mac Jones early on.
