Tom Brady failed to throw for a touchdown for the first time in 52 regular season games.

The Patriots suffered their first loss of the year to Cincinnati as Brady threw for 197 yards and one interception. Brady was nearing New Orleans QB Drew Brees' record of 54 consecutive regular season games with a touchdown pass, a record Brees broke just last season.

Brady had an opportunity to tie the game and keep his streak alive in the game's final drive, but the Pats QB could not overcome the driving wind and rain and was picked off by Adam Jones to effectively end the game.
