The Stat Line Of The Night – 10/4/10 – Patrick Chung

The Pats entered the half down 7-6 to the Fins, but things changed quickly in the third quarter.  Brandon Tate started things off by returning the second half kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown.  Then it was Chung’s turn to get in on the action.  After a three-and-out, he successfully broke through the Dolphins offensive line and blocked a punt off the boot of Brandon Fields, setting his team up on the Miami 15-yard line.  Two plays later BenJarvus Green-Ellis would give the Patriots a commanding 20-7 lead.  But Chung was not done there.

Early in the fourth quarter, with his team up 27-14, Chung blocked a Dan Carpenter field goal attempt, that would be scooped up by Kyle Arrington and returned for a touchdown, giving the Pats a 34-14 lead.  And not long after that he would cap off a brilliant night with an interception, which he would return for a touchdown.  The Patriots would become the first team in league history to record a passing touchdown, rushing touchdown, kickoff return touchdown, interception return for a touchdown and blocked field goal for a touchdown, all in the same game.  Patrick Chung’s play was a big part of that, and it earned him the “Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, October 4, 2010.
