After fumbling earlier in the game, New England Patriots wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson wanted to get back in Bill Belichick’s good graces. He did just that with an explosive 95-yard kickoff return touchdown.

Early in the second quarter, Patterson took the ball from the five-yard line and used a series of moves to avoid defenders then hit the open lane. Once he reached a clearing, Patterson gave a high-five to a teammate then waltzed into the end zone.

Needless to say, this should square things with Belichick. Patterson’s return touchdown helped narrow Chicago’s lead and further displayed just how explosive Patterson can be as a returner.
