Bengals Stifle Tom Brady

Bengals LogoCINCINNATI — Tom Brady couldn’t get into the end zone against a defense that’s developing a reputation for taking down the league’s top quarterbacks.

Aaron Rodgers found out. And so did Brady, running on empty all game long.

The Bengals ended Brady’s streak of 52 consecutive games with a touchdown pass on Sunday, sacking him on his first pass attempt and keeping the pressure going.

The defense even helped BenJarvus Green-Ellis get into the end zone for the game’s only touchdown in a 13-6 victory over the previously undefeated Patriots.

It was so impressive that defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer was handed a rain-drenched game ball in the locker room.
