Kickoff returner Devin Hester gave Chicago possession at the New England 30 on the ensuing drive after the field goal with a 61-yard run return. Taylor scored six plays later to cap a drive that used up 2 minutes, 13 seconds of clock.
By the end of the quarter, the Patriots held a time-of-possession advantage of 27:22 to 17:38 and a 402-115 edge in yards.
