The Patriots are looking for their fifth straight win to improve to 5-0 when they visit the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The 2-2 Bengals are coming off a loss in Cleveland last week to the Browns.
Former Patriots linebacker Rosevelt Colvin joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich on Friday to discuss Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, the Patriots 4-0 record, the defense without Vince Wilfork and Greg Schiano and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The guys started off with this week’s Patriots game against the Bengals. Does Andy Dalton have what it takes to take his team to the next level?
“He has the opportunity to sort of stake his claim to be one of the best quarterbacks in that division and this is the time for it. I think he has the skill set, he definitely has the people around that will allow him to distribute the ball when it comes to the passing game.”
They moved on to discuss the record of the Pats. Are the Patriots one of the weakest 4-0 teams that are left? Where do the teams rank in Colvin’s eyes?
“Can you make the argument that they’re the weakest 4-0 team? Who cares, at the end will they make the playoffs? That’s all you’re looking for is a shot. It’s not their fault the way the schedule kind of came out and how other teams are struggling early on.”
