CINCINNATI BENGALS (3-0)

OUT DT Brandon Thompson - Knee

DOUBTFUL LB Vontaze Burfict - Concussion; WR Marvin Jones - Ankle; G Kevin Zeitler - Calf

QUESTIONABLE DE Margus Hunt - Shoulder

PROBABLE DE Robert Geathers - Toe; HB Rex Burkhead - Knee; WR A.J. Green - Toe; S George Iloka - Abdomen; LB Emmanuel Lamur - Concussion; G/C Mike Pollak - Knee; LB Sean Porter - Hamstring

The Bengals look to be without their starting linebacker, their number two receiver, and their starting guard. Hopefully the Patriots can take advantage of the match-ups, by exploiting the middle of the field in the passing game and by putting pressure on the replacement guard.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (2-2)

OUT DB Nate Ebner - Finger; OL Cameron Fleming - Finger

DOUBTFUL No Players Listed

QUESTIONABLE LB Jamie Collins - Thigh; CB Alfonzo Dennard - Shoulder; DL Dominique Easley - Knee; LB Dont'a Hightower - Knee; DE Chandler Jones - Shoulder

PROBABLE TE Rob Gronkowski - Knee

Ebner will be missed on special teams and his loss will likely mean more game time for Tavon Wilson. Fleming will likely be replaced in the line-up by either Ryan Wendell or Marcus Cannon, depending on how the team wishes to attack the Bengals (rushing by Wendell, passing by Cannon).

Easley is a new addition to the list, but hopefully he is okay.
