I guess that depends on your (or the package that the cable is in) definition of "patch cable".
If the cable you have does not specifically say "crossover" cable, then you should be good to go.
If you want to take another step to see if it is the right kind of cable... take a look at the plug and see if you can see the wires inside the plug (there are 8 of them lined up next to one another).
The sequence of wires should be:
Both ends should be this way and then you should be able to plug into the router no problem... *knocking wood*
