Pats Suffer First Loss
The Bengals beat the Patriots yesterday 13-6. The crushing blow of this game came on late interception thrown by Brady. On 1st and 10 at the Bengals 27 yard line, Brady lobbed a pass to receiver Aaron Dobson that landed into the hands of Adam Jones to end it for the Patriots.
The only points the Patriots could put up on the board this game was through two converted field goal attempts, effectively ending Tom Brady’s streak of 52 games in which he has recorded a touchdown pass. The loss brings the once undefeated Patriots down to a record of 4-1.
Brady’s counterpart Andy Dalton had managed the game well. He completed 74% of his passes and led the Bengals down field for their only touchdown of the game. The touchdown came on a 1 yard run by former Patriot, BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
The battering Bengals were tough on Tom Brady this game; connecting on 2 tackles of the quarterback in the first two drives of the game. In total the Bengals had 4 sacks this game. They took full advantage of the Patriots offensive line pushing them back into the pocket and making things very difficult on Tom Brady.
The main highlight for their defense was in the 4th quarter when they kept the Patriots out of the end zone, forcing them to settle for a field goal.
The Patriots defense also played well. They had 4 sacks of their own on Andy Dalton.
