Watch Matt Forte attack Lance Briggs with a cardboard box, because why not

It's gameday. 

The Patriots are in town. 

Khalil Mack is probably playing with a significant injury. 

Stressed out? Don't blame you. So enjoy this video of Matt Forte pranking Lance Briggs:

Bears vs. Patriots Live Blog: Score, highlights, analysis from NFL Week 4 game

WE"LL DO IT LIVE. 

Welcome back, gang. It feels like only a week ago we were all in Miami, watching one of the drunkest Bears games we've seen in a while. No rest for the weary, though, and the Bears are back in Chicago and oh god they're playing Tom Brady and the Patriots. Khalil Mack WILL play, though, and Rob Gronkowski will NOT. One step at a time. 

As always, J.J. Stankevitz will be your eyes and ears from Soldier; give him a follow. Lorin Cox's tweets are also worth your time. 

1ST QUARTER

1240 - TOUCHDOWN BEARS. After the Bears recover a fumble on the kickoff, Trubisky runs in the silliest QB "sneak" you'll see in a while. BEARS 10, PATRIOTS 7. 

1235 - CODY PARKEY FROM 46 YARDS STRAIGHT CASH. PATRIOTS 7, BEARS 3. 

1230 - Trubisky is like, the entire offense right now. Up to 37 yards rushing. Whatever works! 

1217 - look at this absolute unit: 

1210 - Touchdown Pats. New England sort of did whatever they wanted to on that drive. It begins. PATRIOTS 7, BEARS 0. 

1205 - Bears kickoff to the Pats and we're underway here. So far NE's pass-catching backs are as good as advertised.
