The injuries to the offense finally hit its toll on the Patriots.

Losing to the Bengals 13-6, the Patriots failed to score a touchdown, costing them the game, as they now move to 4-1 on the season.

Michael Felger, Troy Brown and Mike Flynn talked about the lack of offensive production in the Patriots first loss of the season.

“The Patriots to this point had survived the loss of Wes Welker, the injury to Danny Amendola, the injury to Rob Gronkowski, the murder charge to Aaron Hernandez,” Felger said. “They had survived those things. Today, I think it’s safe to say it, those things all caught up to them big time.”

Even with the Patriots inefficiency on offense, the defense played well, despite allowing some big runs up the middle.

“Overall, it was a good showing by the defense and the offense just didn’t put up any points for them,” Brown said.
