The New England Patriots dropped their first game of the season on Sunday, a 13-6 shutdown by the Cincinnati Bengals. The Patriots were held to just 248 yards of total offense and were 1-of-12 on third down offensively.

It's been a long time since the Pats offense has been so thoroughly stopped, but that wasn't even the worst potential news of the day, with another possible major injury that could be devastating.

Defensively, the Pats held the Bengals in check for most of the day until a 14-play, 93-yard touchdown drive that put the defensive struggle out of reach in the fourth quarter.

Here are the major takeaways as the Pats fell to 4-1 on the season.
