The New England Patriots have started to create some separation between themselves and the Chicago Bears thanks to some great individual plays in all three phases of the game – two of which interceptions by the defense. First, rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson was able to wrestle away the football for his second pick this season:

On the very next defensive series, it was Jonathan Jones’ turn to come up with an interception – and it was a spectacular one-handed catch to turn the football over inside New England’s 5-yard line:

Despite starting deep inside their own territory, the Patriots were able to march all the way down the field thanks in part to a big 55-yard catch-and-run by wide receiver Josh Gordon. The big play set up New England at the Bears’ 1-yard line – and on 2nd and goal, the team turned Jones’ interception into six points:

The play counts as as touchdown pass from Tom Brady but essentially is a perfectly executed run from James White.
