Even though the New England Patriots have only enjoyed limited success since Tom Brady's departure in 2020, they're still not regarded fondly around the NFL. Just ask Chicago Bears defensive tackle Justin Jones, who took to Twitter to throw some massive shade at New England after Chicago's dominant victory on Monday Night Football during Week 7.
Jones and his squad walked out of Gillette Stadium with a convincing 33-14 win, but that didn't stop him from making a strong statement late on Monday night.
Alluding to the infamous Deflategate scandal, Jones tweeted that the "balls were inflated to the fullest. Result = 3 INTs."
This is an obvious nod to the 2014 scandal, in which Brady and the Patriots were accused of deflating the footballs used during their AFC Championship win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Either way, Chicago's defense came out firing against Bill Belichick's quarterback combination of Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe. The QBs tossed a combined 3 interceptions for an offense that managed just 260 yards. The result? A shocking upset under the bright lights of MNF.
The Bears have another tough road matchup ahead of them as they travel to Dallas for a Week 8 clash with the Dallas Cowboys. Despite Monday's big win, Chicago is listed as a 9.5-point underdog on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
