New England Patriots: Halftime Thoughts

Written by 

If you enjoy defense, you have enjoyed the first half of the New England Patriots game versus the Bengals.  We head into the half with the Patriots and Bengals tied at three. 


The offense has looked inept for most of the first half.  Tom Brady has been hurried.  He has been inacurate.  The offensive line especially Nate Solder, has been bad. Ryan Allen has been the best New England Patriots weapon.  The game plan is very bad. A fumble by Blount ended the only solid drive of the game. They need to continue running the football to keep the Bengals front four off of Tom Brady. 


As bad as the offense has looked, the defense is a 180.  The Pats defense is back. They have stuffed the run and held the Bengals to only three points.  Aqib Talib has done a fine job in holding down AJ Green.  Green has come to Talib Town and he is not enjoying his visit. The defense held the Bengals to a three and out and allowed the offense to actually get points on the board.   


Lets talk about the fact that the Patriots have not reached the red zone in the first half.   It's not looking great for the teams offense.  Brady is 11/20 for 90 yards.  Blount has 42 yards rushing but we might not see him again after the fumble.  Amendola leads the team with three catches for 39 yards in his return.  Brandon Spike leads the defense with eight total tackles and and interception.  

The Patriots are finding ways to win games in different ways.  Hopefully this is another occasion.


On the line is continuing the winning streak and Tom Brady's second longest touch down streak.
