In the loss to Kansas City, New England’s Tom Brady put up 169 yards with a TD and an INT. James White added 33 rush yards and Julian Edelman led the receivers wit 95 yards and a TD from eight catches. 

Over on the Bengals’ side, they’re 1-12 so far. Cincinnati’s lone win this season came 22-6 to the Jets, but then they lost their most recent outing to the Browns 27-19. 

In the loss to the Browns, Bengals QB Andy Dalton put up 262 yards and an INT, and Joe MIxon rushed for 146 yards with a TD. Tyler Boyd managed 75 yards with five receptions there as well. 

The Patriots are 21-5 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last five in Week 15. New England is 23-11 ATS in their last 34 road games and 47-23 ATS in their last 70 overall. 

Meanwhile, the Bengals are 23-9 ATS in their last 32 in December and 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall. Cincinnati is 2-5 ATS in their last seven on turf and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 at home. 

It sounds weird to say, but some of the luster has worn off the Patriots over their last five games, as they’re just 2-3 in that span. That said, outside of the Ravens game (37-20) New England has still been in a position to get wins, falling 28-22 to the Texans and 23-16 to the Chiefs. 

Then there’s the Bengals, who have ben better over the last four weeks or so; each of their losses in that span has come by eight points or less. That said, I don’t think they get close here, so I’m going Patriots.
