One can only hope that both the Bengals and our predictions will do better in Week 6 as the team heads to Gillette Stadium today to face the Patriots. If the Bengals want to get back to .500 by the end of Sunday, it will not be easy. But, I believe they can do it.
The Patriots are currently ranked 17th in the league in scoring, with 22.8 points per game. Only one of their five games so far has seen Tom Brady at quarterback as the Patriots future Hall of Famer was at home for the first four weeks of the season, serving his Deflategate suspension.
Last week against the Browns, Brady threw three touchdowns in the Patriots' 33-13 win over Cleveland.
The Bengals rank 24th in the league in points per game with 18.4. That number will need to be raised significantly to beat the Patriots' high-powered offense.
What are you predicting the final score of this game to be? Let us know in the comments and hopefully next week, we'll have better results to share from those of you who guess correctly (or even close to the final score).
