Day 190: Patriots Lost So Watch this Funny Video

Imagine my surprise when I turned on the television while sitting at an Inn in Pennsylvania and found the Patriots-Bengals game was actually ON!! I knew I wouldn't be able to watch the entire game because the wedding started at 4pm and after watching the first three quarters, I'm pretty glad that I missed the end. That 13-6 loss to the Bengals was nothing short of painful.

So now I can't even bring myself to write about the game because it basically stunk. The Bengals' defense pressured the Patriots' offense to the point of Tom Brady having a pretty crappy performance. Brady completed just 18 of 38 pass attempts for 197 yards, no touchdown passes and an interception. The Pats scored just six points.

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?
