The Bears got a lot of breaks in the first half, but Chicago still trails New England 21-17 because of they're lacking a passing attack on offense and a pass rush on defense. Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky made several big plays with his feet, but completed only 8 of 20 pass attempts for 92 yards. On the other side of the ball, Khalil Mack has been a non-factor for the Bears defense. Mack, who entered the game as questionable with an ankle injury, did not record a tackle in the first half, as the Bears routinely dropped him back in coverage as opposed to turning him loose against Tom Brady.

Bears starting nickel back Bryce Callahan left the game with an undisclosed injury, forcing the Bears to use backup cornerback Sherrick McManis in the slot. Callahan entered the game as questionable with an ankle injury but managed to start despite missing practice on Friday.

The Patriots' trip to Chicago to face the Bears on Sunday provided Bill Belichick a springboard to do something close to his heart: Teach history. Players relayed that Belichick went into depth Thursday on the history of Soldier Field, which included iconic old photographs that traced back to some of the earliest games played in the stadium, such as Army vs. Navy – watched by 110,000 spectators – on Nov. 27, 1926. On Friday, when Belichick was asked by reporters about his own memories of coaching at Soldier Field, he highlighted Walter Payton's first game, in 1975, when Belichick was just breaking into the NFL as a special assistant with the Baltimore Colts. "It's a great environment. It's a lot different now. Obviously, it's hard to even recognize Soldier Field as Soldier Field -- certainly from the inside," Belichick said, in reference to renovations from the early 2000s that still preserved some of the stadium's original columns on the outside. "It's a big, expansive structure like JFK [Stadium] in Philly or the [Los Angeles Memorial] Coliseum. You don't see those stadiums any more. It's a pretty special place."

Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack (ankle) and wide receiver Allen Robinson (groin) were both limited in practice on Friday and listed as questionable to face the New England Patriots on Sunday. Cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) had full participation and appears set to start vs. New England, but nickel back Bryce Callahan sat out practice and is also questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury.

The Bears say Leonard Floyd was not fined for his suplex tackle of Miami's Danny Amendola last weekend. Floyd was flagged for unnecessary roughness following the play.

Bears head coach Matt Nagy is still calling Khalil Mack "day-to-day" with a right ankle injury. Mack did not practice on Wednesday, but the club remains hopeful that he can play on Sunday versus the Patriots. Also, wide receiver Allen Robinson has been limited this week with a groin injury that Nagy said was aggravated in Chicago's loss to Miami last Sunday.
