CINCINNATI, OH -- Two streaks ended in Cincinnati on Sunday.
The first is New England's four-week reign as an undefeated team. The second is more surprising: Tom Brady's streak of 52 games with at least one touchdown pass. It was the first time Brady has been shut down since a January 3, 2010 game against Houston.
Brady completed just 18 of 38 passes in the 13-6 loss to the Bengals. He also threw an interception, was sacked four time, hit at least eight times, and fumbled once.
"It wasn't our best day of execution," Brady frowned. "We had plenty of opportunities and chances in the red zone to get it in today and we just didn't. It was just a poor performance all around."
Brady was just two games and two touchdowns away from tying Drew Brees' all-time record of 54.
"I'm bummed we lost," the quarterback shrugged. "That's all that really matters."
