Cincinnati Bengals mailbag: Will Geno Atkins show against Patriots? - ESPN
With arguably one of their biggest quarterback tests looming, the Cincinnati Bengals will need one of their most effective pass rushes of the season Sunday night when they visit the New England Patriots.
One of the most anticipated matchups in Week 5 of the NFL season is the Cincinnati Bengals visiting the New England Patriots on Sunday night. Fans are curious to see if the Patriots will be able to rebound from their humiliating loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last Monday, and if their will be any further evidence that their dynasty is coming to an end. Meanwhile, the Bengals are one of two undefeated teams left heading into Week 5, and they’ll put that undefeated record on the line in prime time.
Gio Bernard spent Saturday, May 10 at the White house, where he had spent so many of his days and nights as a teenager. By Saturday, May 10, Gio Bernard was 22 years old, firmly established as a rising NFL star. During his rookie year, he’d send Bengals gear to the Whites. A little extra ‘thank you.’
Before the New England Patriots play a game, we will attempt to predict the team's inactive players. Our best guess for Sunday's game against the Bengals (with eight players listed to account for Brandon Browner's expected return):
One of the many disappointing players on the Patriots’ offense has been released. Kenbrell Thompkins, a wide receiver who showed promise as a rookie last year but hasn’t done much this year, has been waived. Thompkins has just six catches for 53 yards this season after catching 32 passes for 466 yards last year.
