WHAT A MESS
Three things jump out at me. 1) The Bengals D-Line won the battle of the trenches, but some of that was the Pats' not running the ball in the second half (six total carries), which enabled Cincy to pin back their ears and get after TB12. 2) The red-area and goal-to-go issues go deeper than play selection. 3) The QB can't get down like he did in this one. When he hangs his head, it resonates and everyone on that sideline senses it. Oh, and 1-for-8 on third down is horsecrap.
