FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WPRI) — The Cincinnati Bengals have a tough challenge against the Patriots Sunday in New England, where Cincinnati hasn’t won since 1986.

When the Bengals played there in 2014, they were beat 43-17 as the Patriots held the Bengals to 0 for 7 on third-down conversions.

During a 2-3 start so far this season, the Bengals have been among the worst, with Andy Dalton under constant pressure.

Cincinnati plays the Patriots on Sunday in Foxborough, which is also Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s home opener.

After a successful regular-season debut at Cleveland against the Browns last week, Sunday is Tom’s terrific homecoming.

This summer during training camp, New England Patriots fans never missed an opportunity to let Tom Brady know they were thinking about him.

He was weeks away from the start of his four-game “Deflategate” suspension, and every time he stepped on the field he was showered with cheers and serenaded with “Brady! Brady! Brady!” chants.

The game’s on 12 Sunday at 1 p.m. on WPRI 12. Catch Eyewitness News at 6:30 p.m. after the game with a live report from Foxborough and game reaction from players and fans.
