The Cincinnati Bengals hope to keep pace with the Cleveland Browns in the AFC North, but first they will need to dispose of the unbeaten New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon. The good news for Cincinnati is that the offense will be fully healthy entering the game, but they could be without three defensive backs and defensive end Michael Johnson, which will open things up for Tom Brady and company.

Here is the Bengals injury report for their meeting with New England:
