Bill Belichick raved all week about Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins. Truth be told, Atkins hasn't been as good as he can be this season. But he showed up this Sunday. On second-and-6, Patriots left tackle Nate Solder completely missed his mark and Atkins got free; he buried Tom Brady in the backfield for a loss of 8 yards. New England, as we've seen too many times already this season, couldn't convert the long yardage situation and went three-and-out.
