The Patriots benched Patrick Chung as the kickoff returner and turned to Danny Amendola. Bill Belichick has sometimes cycled through returners until finding a hot hand to use for the season.

Week 8: vs Chicago Bears

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Tom Brady has been on a tear since being benched early in the loss to Kansas City - 48/75 for 622 yards passing, seven TDs and zero interceptions thrown is what he's thrown over the past two games, folks. Impressive. Four players have been targeted 10 or more times during the last two explosive games: Rob Gronkowski (19 targets for 12/162/0 receiving); Julian Edelman (22 for 14/135/0 receiving); Brandon LaFell (11 for 8/152/2), and Shane Vereen (11 for 6/74/2 receiving). There are a lot of fantasy points available from Brady during recent weeks - start one of the above fantasy receivers and your club should be doing well at the end of Sunday. The Bears' pass D just last weekend allowed Miami 25/32 for 256 net yards, two TDs with one interception thrown, and four sacks taken for -21 yards. Two weeks back, it was Matt Ryan slinging 19/37 for 245 yards, one TD and one interception while taking four sacks for -26 yards. Chicago gives freely in this phase of the game. In fact the Bears are tied for 19th in the NFL averaging 247.6 net passing yards allowed per game, with 12 passing scores given up to date, vs. eight interceptions (tied for third in the NFL) and 19 sacks (tied-eighth) generated so far. This is a good matchup for the streaking Brady and company.

2014 Week 7 vs NYJ (3 / 1 / 19 / 1 rec)

Danny Amendola had his best day as of the season, which granted, isn't saying much to this point. Amendola was used as the primary kickoff returner, a new wrinkle that actually worked well, as he averaged 26 yards per return and was fairly consistent in getting past the 20. Amendola also had the highlight play of the night, a great touchdown grab on 3rd and goal way back on the 19 yard line. Amendola ran his route and saw Tom Brady scrambling to his left. He improvised, darted up the field, Brady fired the ball, and Amendola leaped and twisted in the air as he caught the ball behind him and scored. A play you'll likely be seeing on Top 10 plays of the week. Other than that, Amendola wasn't too involved, but it was good to see him be productive despite his diminished role.
