The New England Patriots did not have TE Rob Gronkowski and their top running back Sony Michel leaves with a knee injury in the second quarter, and they still figured out a way to win in Chicago. That’s what separates the Patriots from the rest of the teams in the NFL. Quarterback Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes, but special teams was the difference.  A 95 yard kickoff return from Cordarelle Patterson and Kyle Van Noy blocked a punt and return it 29 yards for a touchdown. Never count out the Patriots, because they always find a way.
