A home underdog? Thats not a familiar role for Bill Belichick and Tom Brady but thats the reality for a struggling New England Patriots team getting ready to host what has been the best team in football, the Cincinnati Bengals. Joe Barksdale Jersey . Catch the game on TSN with coverage starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. The unbeaten Bengals have allowed a league-low 33 points in 2014 and are the only team in the NFL to allow 16 points or fewer in every game. Offensively, Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton has piled up a solid 95.4 passer rating while distributing the ball to multiple threats. Three different Bengals have at least 12 receptions in the teams first three games -- wide receivers A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu as well as and running back Giovani Bernard. This is nothing more than a good first quarter (of the season), said veteran offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth. You cant let up. October is a month for adjustments. Teams begin to find out who they are. October is a big month. The Bengals come into that big month off a bye week but when last seen in Week 3 the club was punishing Tennessee, 33-7. Bernard rushed for a pair of scores against the Titans and Dalton became the first Cincinnati quarterback to record a receiving touchdown. It was a good effort in all three phases, noted Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. Probably our best effort of the season. We did a good job of handling the windy conditions offensively. Dalton finished 15-of-23 for 169 yards and one interception, but hauled in an 18-yard scoring pass from Sanu in the second quarter as the Bengals extended their franchise-record, home-winning streak to 12 games. Green returned from a toe injury to amass 102 yards on six catches against Tennessee and Bernard totaled 47 yards on 14 carries, while rookie Jeremy Hill chipped in with a rushing score. Things have been far tougher, almost uncharacteristically so, for the Patriots, who are coming off a 41-14 drubbing at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football. Dressed in a sea of red, the raucous crowd at Arrowhead Stadium set another Guinness world record as Jamaal Charles returned from a sprained right ankle and scored three touchdowns in the rout. The Chiefs fans reclaimed the record for loudest outdoor sports venue in the first half. Their noise level of 142.2 decibels broke the 137.6 mark that the Seattle Seahawks faithful set on Dec. 2. Kansas City previously set the record on Oct. 13. New England failed to crack the 300-yard barrier for the third time in four games in that noise after doing it just four times last season. The Patriots totaled 290 yards. Brady was 14-of-23 for 159 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions and Brandon LaFell caught six passes for 119 yards and a score for the Patriots, who suffered their worst defeat since losing to San Diego 41-17 in 2005. Couldnt really move the ball consistently on offense and turned the ball over in the second half, Belichick surmised New England holds a 14-9 advantage over the Bengals in the all-time series between the two clubs but Cincinnati topped the Pats, 13-6, last year by holding New England to 248 net yards. Were a totally different team and Im sure theyre a totally different team, said Bengals defensive end Wallace Gilberry. WHAT TO WATCH FOR There is some serious debate going on regarding Brady, who is just 60 passing yards shy of becoming the sixth player in NFL history with 50,000. Some believe the 37-year-old, three-time Super Bowl winner has reached what is an inevitable decline for any athlete and the one battle we all eventually lose, the fight against Father Time. Others insist Brady has plenty left in the tank but is struggling because the Patriots have failed him by not providing adequate threats outside the numbers or a competent offensive line. Whatever thesis you subscribe to, heres the reality: the Pats have the 29th-reanked offense in the NFL, Bradys 79.1 passer rating is a dismal 29th in the league and hes connecting on what projects to be a career-worst 59.1 percent of the passes. Things got so bad in Kansas City that Belichick lifted the long-time star for rookie second-round pick Jimmy Garoppolo, who promptly led New England on a late scoring drive. Like (coach Belichick) always says, ignore the noise and just stay focused on what we need to do, Brady said. Stay focused on what our process is to try to make the improvement. Weve got an important job to do this week and the clock is ticking. Opposing defenses no longer fear the Patriots and are jumping the underneath routes to Julian Edelman and Ron Gronkowski with no fear of getting beat over the top. The Bengals, on the other hand, are extremely balanced and can beat you in a multitude of ways offensively. They have a lot of good players, Belichick admitted. Theyre well-coached. Theyre tough, theyre physical. Its been a while since Ive seen a team thats as complete as they are. Dalton receives a lot of criticism and he is certainly not Brady in his prime but hes been tremendously consistent with 33 career wins since arriving as a second-round pick out of TCU in 2011. At the end of the day, youre not going against the quarterback, but everybody is going to compare you to the other quarterback, Dalton said. Anytime you can win against guys like (Brady), its big. It shows what this team is capable of doing. Ive got a lot of confidence. You go into those games expecting to win. OVERALL ANALYSIS The Bengals should expect to win. While the Patriots will remain in the postseason hunt for the foreseeable future simply because the AFC East is so bad, its looking more likely that the Bengals have replaced them as one of the few, true Super Bowl contenders on the AFC side of things. Cincinnati is just too well-rounded in all phases to lose to a Patriots team which cant seem to get out of its own way offensively. Sports Network predicted outcome: Bengals 27, Patriots 17 Branden Oliver Jersey . -- When the Los Angeles Kings are on top of their formidable defensive game, they revel in the silence they can create in a frustrated road arena. Kyle Emanuel Jersey . A strong fastball. A big, bending curveball that can buckle hitters at the knees. Against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, Elias put the entire package together against one of the leagues strongest lineups. http://www.authenticchargersnflfansmall....ersey.aspx . -- Sonny Grays fastball wasnt as sharp as it usually is, and the Oakland Athletics young pitcher even had a quirky replay go against him.Its the day before the NBAs trade deadline and TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on Amir Johnsons return, Randy Wittmans influence on the Washington Wizards and what may be in store for Kyle Lowry and Rajon Rondo. 1. AMIR JOHNSON: Nice to see him back in the lineup Tuesday night in Washington DC. Played with great energy and purpose. Its amazing when a guy gets those few precious days to recover what it does to the bounce in their step and overall game/confidence. They need him big time in the final 29 games and the fact that he missed the two games prior to the All Star break due to injury could end up being a blessing for their team. When he and Terrence Ross are going good, this team can compete at a high level with anyone. 2. RANDY WITTMAN: I said it Tuesday night on the telecast and Ill say it again. A coach has to get run from a game to light a fire under his team - thats a joke. The ultimate motivation and leadership has to come from the players. More leadership is needed in that locker room. The Wizards have more than enough talent to not only be a playoff team, but a winning playoff team. Felt bad for Wittman. Coaches get the blame all the time. I get that - been there and done that - yet at some point to take that next step it truly has to be a conscious decision on the part of your core players that youre going to be a good team and not allow yourself to be outplayed at home. 3. RAJON RONDO: Love the hard bargain and market that GM Danny Ainge is trying to create for himm. Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys. As he gets healthier, his play will improve significantly. On the other side, its pretty evident that Rondo will be playing for another team in the next few days - or at the very latest a year from now. He wants to play on a winner and it will take a little longer in Boston for that to happen. 4. KYLE LOWRY: Watch him in the third quarter last night? He was brilliant. How does a guy establish his value in a contract year? Play big when your team needs you the most. Believe me, GMs and scouts are watching and realize hes doing it on a winning team thats one of the pleasant surprises in the league and hes a big reason why. Whether its with the Raptors or somewhere else, it will all work out if he continues to play at this high level. The obvious concern is after he gets a significant contract will his level of play stay the same and/or improve to justify it or will it dip? Thats the toughest thing to gauge for decision-makers. These final regular season games and potential playoff games will help set the bar for him. So far, hes setting himself up very nicely. 5. JARRETT JACK: His name is involved in trade rumours and hed be a good pickup for a contender. His former team - the Warriors - really misses his clutch play and great leadership skills. Unfortunately, he hasnt been able to impact the climate in Cleveland as well as he did in Golden State. Hes more of a complimentary player and when hes in that position hes quite effective. Can play both guard spots and makes the good high percentage play. Will be interesting to see if he sticks around, considering the Cavs have won five in a row and are right back in the playoff race in the East.
