, and he tackled the opportunity the same way he played for 13 seasons.Fast.Urlacher was honored by the Chicago Bears at halftime of their 24-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, after he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer. He got his Ring of Excellence from Bears owner Virginia McCaskey, and the team also presented Urlacher and his family with a statue of the All-Pro linebacker.The 40-year-old Urlacher, who rose to stardom at the University of New Mexico before he was selected by Chicago with the No. 9 pick in the 2000 draft, then blitzed through a quick speech thanking his family, former teammates and fans for their support over the years."This whole process, not just the Hall of Fame weekend, but this process of getting ready for this week," Urlacher said, "all my teammates, 15, 16 guys came back, I get a chance to see them Cheap Mitchell Trubisky Jersey
, go to the facility, see a lot of people that worked there when I was there, it's awesome."Urlacher spent his entire 13-year career in Chicago. He retired after the 2012 season when he was unable to come to terms on a new contract with the Bears.He relished the opportunity to address the fans at Soldier Field for the first time since his career ended."It was amazing," he said.

Patterson’s score came a short time after he gifted the Bears great field position with a fumble, although he may have earned himself a second dressing down for slowing down to high-five J.C. Jackson during the successful return.White’s touchdown capped a 64-yard drive that marked Tom Brady‘s only real work of the second quarter. Patterson’s fumble was followed by running back Sony Michel losing the ball and the Patriots offense only ran three plays from the 7:34 mark of the first quarter through the 9:46 mark of the second quarter.The Patriots, who lost Michel to a knee injury on the same play, only wound up running 8 fewer plays than the Bears and outgained their hosts by 16 yards, so it’s been a pretty good day on defense when the Patriots haven’t started drives backed up in their territory by turnovers. Mitchell Trubisky has had success when he’s pulled the ball down to run, but is 8-of-20 when he’s put the ball in the air.Should he continue to struggle on that front once play resumes, it will likely take more turnovers for the Bears to navigate their way to a win on Sunday.
