We look over the remains from the bomb that the Patriots dropped on the Bengals Sunday night and give our best and worst.
The Cincinnati Bengals took one on the chin, in front of the entire nation on Sunday Night Football. They lost by 26 points but it felt more than that. Dalton and Green weren't bad, but they weren't great and Cincinnati needs them to be great.
The Cincinnati Bengals won't have Vontaze Burfict or Marvin Jones, both of whom were listed as doubtful on the team's injury report. However, New England won't have their leading tackler, Dont'a Hightower, either.
New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis has a history against Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers. It was Revis, who at the time monikered "Revis Island", shut down Chad Johnson in consecutive games in 2009. Now he faces a new Bengals WR.
Will the baton for conference superiority change hands on Sunday Night? Will old storylines transition into new ones? Or does familiarity remind us that the same ol' problems exist? Tonight's game is a test that we look forward to seeing.
