Adam Vinateri made back-to-back field goals for the 22-14 lead. Vinateri made a 20-yard field goal to make it 22-14 with 3:16 left in the third.

With 7:26 in the third, he made a 24-yard field goal, as the Patriots went up 19-14.

Dominic Rhodes scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown to make it 16-14. Vinateri made it 14-9 Bears when he made a 29-yard field goal.
