Video: Reiss' 3 keys for Patriots vs. Bears

By ESPNBoston.com



In the video clip above, ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss gives his three keys for a Patriots victory against the Bears on Sunday:

1. Blocking pass-rusher Julius Peppers. The Bears move him around on each side of the line, so offensive tackles Matt Light and Sebastian Vollmer will have to be ready.

2. Directional punting and kicking. The Bears are dangerous in the return game, look for the Pats to keep the ball away from Devin Hester.

3. Stopping Bears RB Matt Forte, who is a threat both running the ball and catching it.
