The Cincinnati Bengals defense did something on Sunday no other team has done in awhile—keep Tom Brady out of the end zone. Before Sunday, the Bengals ended Tom Brady’s 52 consecutive streak of throwing a touchdown pass. In a masterpiece performance, the Bengals defense stole the game and beat the New England Patriots 13-3 at Paul Brown Stadium.
Unfortunately, the Bengals offense was nowhere to be found. In two weeks, they managed to score thirteen points against the Patriots and three against Browns. In today’s NFL, sixteen points isn’t enough to make it to a Superbowl.
Eventually, Andy Dalton will need to make better decisions. Local, sports talk has questioned the Bengals decision to keep Andy Dalton as the starting quarterback. The Bengals defense stayed in Tom Brady’s grill the entire game. If they weren’t hitting him they were beating him up and pressuring him.
The Bengals next opponent is the Buffalo Bills, who will be starting Thad Lewis in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel. Cincinnati fans will expect another dominant performance from their defense.
