This weekend sees them in Cincinnati.
I am on the fence about this game. Of the past five regular season games versus the Bengals, the Pats have only lost one (2001 season opener at Cincy).
But then again something seems off about the team this year, a little post-Branch wobble or something. And while they haven't lost two games in a row since December '02, they are playing at the Bengals, not in Foxboro where the home team fans are outta control.
I am going to be watching this game like I watch slasher flicks: on mute with my hands over my eyes.
