In a rematch four years in the making, the Chicago Bears will look to redeem themselves after a snow-filled 2010 outing during which visiting New England came away with its third straight win in the series. The Oct. 26 matchup at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough will mark the first time since 2006 that the Patriots have hosted the Bears, and only the fourth time overall. In 12 all-time meetings between the two franchises, New England has prevailed in eight of them, though the vast majority of the head-to-head clashes came prior to 2000.
