Tonight’s Sunday Night Football game is between a 2-2 team with a record that doesn’t communicate their woes and a 3-0 team with a top-10 offense. It still seems odd to know that the New England Patriots are the ones struggling while the Cincinnati Bengals are one of only two undefeated teams left in the league.
The Patriots on Monday Night endured one of the most embarrassing losses in franchise history, a 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Tom Brady on Monday completed 14 of 23 passes for 159 yards and more interceptions (2) than touchdown passes (1).
Brady won’t likely turn it around as you watch Bengals vs Patriots live online Sunday Night Football free stream tonight from Gillette Stadium. The Bengals aren’t effective at stopping the pass, but they are tops in the league for points allowed. Brady will also once again be without wide receiver Aaron Dobson, whom coach Bill Belichick said Friday will be inactive for the third week.
The Bengals are coming off a Week 4 bye, giving QB Andy Dalton time to prepare for the Patriots tonight. In Week 3 the Bengals beat the Tennessee Titans 33-7 and Dalton caught a touchdown pass, though his 15-for-23, 169-yard performance was overshadowed by Jake Locker. He’ll have a rough go as you watch Bengals vs Patriots live online Sunday Night Football free stream tonight, as the Patriots have the fifth-ranked D and have allowed the fewest passing yards of any team.
