Flowers likely served as Bengals pass rusher Carlos Dunlap in practice. OT Marcus Cannon had his best game of the season after this past week of practice.
Johnson was probably Bengals star defensive tackle Geno Atkins. LG Joe Thuney played well against great competition. Atkins is regarded as a top five defensive tackle in the NFL.
Sankey could have been either Bengals running back- Giovanni Bernard or Jeremy Hill. The Patriots did a good job of bottling up Hill all game, while Bernard was quiet in the second half.
White might have been Bengals WR A.J. Green, despite being four inches shorter. The Patriots did a good job against Green when in one-on-one coverage and they didn’t allow Green to take over the game.
