The New England Patriots play the Cincinnati Bengals,
and things look really great for the Patriots despite their incident in
Cleveland. Pretty much every player contributes to the game, including rookie
wide receiver N’Keal Harry.
The Patriots finished the first half of the game with
13-10, and things got a lot better in the second half. Cincinnati had a tiny
lead in the first half, but they are smashed now.
New England was three-and-out twice on their final possession of the first half, but a muffed punt let them add a field goal right before the halftime. The muffed punt was forced by Matthew Slater and recovered by Justin Bethel. Nick Folk did his thing on the field, and he cleared the crossbar from 46 yards out. This is the longest kick any Patriot has made in the regular season.
Tom Brady’s team needed to convert two third downs on the ensuing drive, but the GOAT could find N’Keal Harry in the back of the end zone for a 7-yard touchdown. The rookie receiver ran a corner route but went back to the middle of the field at Paul Brown Stadium when TB12 stepped up in the pocket to earn time. He evaded cornerback B.W. Webb and pulled out a dive.
This was more than appreciated by the Patriots nation,
and head coach Bill Belichick is proud of his choice. N’Keal Harry was a smart
choice for the Patriots. Unfortunately, he missed a lot of games at the
beginning of the season, and some said that the team plans to cut him. Harry
made his Patriots debut late in the season, but his help is more than welcome. The
Patriots needed him, and he was brilliant in this game.
Julian Edelman was limited during the game, but Harry
stepped in and did an incredible job.
The Patriots entered their contest against the Bengals
with a heavy thought on their back. Cincinnati blamed the Patriots for
videotaping their sideline, and the NFL has launched an investigation into the
scandal. According to recent reports, New England will be fined. This won’t be
their first fine.
