Patriots Defeat Bengals, Extend Winning Streak
The New England Patriots opened the season with a thrilling win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, extending their winning streak to three games.
Strong Offensive Showing
Tom Brady was back in top form, throwing for 377 yards and three touchdowns as the Patriots offense surged to victory. Julian Edelman led the way with 8 catches for 179 yards and a touchdown, while Brandin Cooks chipped in with 6 catches for 84 yards and a touchdown of his own. The New England backfield also proved to be a crucial factor, with rookie Sony Michel making a strong debut, rushing for 106 yards and a touchdown.
The New England defense was dominant, holding the Bengals to just 13 points and forcing two turnovers. Trey Flowers was a standout performance, recording three sacks and two forced fumbles. The Patriots special teams unit also made a significant contribution with three field goal blocks.
The win was a familiar one for the Patriots, as they have now won their last three games against the Bengals. It is also their third consecutive win to start the season, something they have not done since 2015.
