Patrick Chung's up-and-down game ended on a high note.
Last week against the San Francisco 49ers, Patrick Chung played just 19 of 67 snaps, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.
This week, however, it was a different story for the former second-round draft pick. Devin McCourty temporarily migrated back to cornerback for injury reasons, and Patrick Chung saw steady work at safety.
By game's end, Chung totaled four tackles, as well as two interceptions returned for 27 yards.
Still, Chung's helmet-to-helmet contact on defenseless Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts was a dangerous and boneheaded play. Shorts was assisted off the field by trainers and the Patriots were assessed a 15-yard penalty.
Chung made some great plays, but leading with his head was far too reminiscent of ex-Patriot Brandon Meriweather.
