Games like Sunday against the Bears highlight just how different the Patriots are than the rest of the NFL. Four weeks ago the Patriots suffered an absolutely embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs. The media basically wrote off Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as washed up and said it was time to move on. Fast forward four weeks the Patriots haven’t lost a game since then and have posted scores of 43, 37, 27, and 51 while Tom Brady has thrown 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Meanwhile the Bears suffered their third loss at home last week, and there were reports of locker room dysfunction. Instead of coming out and shutting the critics up, the Bears collapsed against the measuring stick of the NFL.
