The Patriots head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals in hopes of keeping pace in the AFC first-round bye race.

New England (10-3) is in unusual territory, losers of two of the last three games behind a series of shaky offensive performances. Tom Brady has struggled recently and his team’s offense has failed to put up more than 23 points since defeating the Browns in Week 8.

Opposite of New England is the league’s worst team in the Bengals. Cincinnati (1-12) is looking the part of a team that will be the first on the clock in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Bengals got on the board with their first win two weeks ago against the Jets, but have dropped a handful of one-score games throughout the season.

Is this finally the week Brady and the Patriots offense can get back on track? The Bengals present an opportunity for New England to build some momentum heading into the playoffs.
