New England Patriots Had Tough Day Thanks To Weather, Cincinnati Bengals’ Defense
The New England Patriots‘ offense got a big boost in getting Danny Amendola back for their Week 5 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Unfortunately, the Patriots ran into some bad weather and a very tough defense. The whole offense had a very tough time getting anything going in an ugly 13-6 loss, bringing them to 4-1 on the season.
After the last couple weeks that both Kenbrell Thompkins and Julian Edelman have had, it looked like bringing Amendola back could open things up for both players and the Patriots’ offense would continue playing like they have the last two games.
But it was clear early that the Bengals were going to make Tom Brady work for his yards. Brady struggled to find receivers early in the game, and the Patriots failed to get into a grove in both the running game and the passing game.
The Bengals are struggling a bit this season, but still have a very good defense and it showed on Sunday. The Patriots had trouble keeping the Bengals’ defensive line out of the backfield, which limited Brady’s time and ended up being a big factor for the Patriots offense.
The Patriots had a chance late and got within an inch of tying the game up — literally an inch — but could not get it done on a day where the weather played a factor late in the game. Patriots fans will be on Rob Gronkowski watch all week in hope that the offense can get going at home against the New Orleans Saints.
After five games and ugly loss in Cincinnati, the Patriots are 4-1 and are not in a terrible position, but they will need to get clicking on offense if they want to be a threat later in the season and in the playoffs.
