More importantly, Tom Brady's consecutive touchdown streak is over. For 52 straight weeks, Brady completed at least one touchdown pass in each regular season game played. The Patriots also had more punts (eight) than they did points (six) and didn't score a touchdown for the first time since September of 2009.
Could it have been the driving rain and wind that forced such a horrific performance from Brady? You might think so, but on the other side of the ball, Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 20-for-27 for 212 yards. The huge difference was that the Bengals were able to mount a strong rushing attack led by former Pats standout, Benjarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard who combined for 129 yards and the game's lone touchdown.
If you're as depressed as I am that the Pats suffered their first loss of the season, then watch the video below of a three-year-old kid who could give Tiger Woods a run for his money... way more interesting than any recap of that football game.
Patriots take on the 5-0 New Orleans Saints this Sunday at Gillette Stadium so they better get their shit together fast! The big question is... will this be the week that Rob Gronkowski returns to the field?
