This is a toss-up. If the Bengals were healthy, the Bengals would clearly have the advantage. Talib and Dennard are good CBs and with the Bengals injuries in the secondary, these two secondarys are pretty even.
Another rare situation where the Bengals have the Safety advantage (assuming Nelson plays). If the Bengals OL can give Dalton time, the Bengals WRs and TEs should be able to take advantage of the Patriots safeties.
Both kickers are good, but Gostowski gets the nod mainly because of his ability to kick 50+ yard field goals.
It is embarrassing that I even have this in here this week. Belichick > Lewis.
With the injuries and free agent losses the Patriots have had, I think they are ripe for the picking (despite their 4-0 record). I think the Bengals matchup well against the Patriots and believe the home field advantage will be the difference.
