Bengals focus on Patriots, not 'MNF' loss

CINCINNATI -- Wallace Gilberry, in his ever honest and matter-of-fact delivery, told reporters Wednesday that he wished the New England Patriots had won their game Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Bengals know better than to underestimate perennial AFC East power New England with Tom Brady, center, and Bill Belichick, right, still calling the shots.

"Because you know they're going to come back out reloaded and hungry," said Gilberry, a veteran Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle. "We're definitely hungry, too. It's like two hungry lions trying to eat. It's going to be a fight."

The Patriots (2-2) will host the Bengals (3-0) in a nationally televised game Sunday night that many believe could finally validate Cincinnati's place atop the NFL -- if the Bengals win.

Several Bengals acknowledged Wednesday that while they were a little surprised by New England's 41-14 blowout loss in its trip to Kansas City, their perception of the reigning AFC East champion hasn't changed. It's still a franchise that has had its share of success in the last decade and a half. Together, Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have won three Super Bowls. Brady also is a nine-time Pro Bowler, even if his play behind a patchwork offensive line in Week 4 didn't really show it.
