Tom Brady completed 25 of 32 passes for three touchdowns and an interception.
With 10:34 to go in the first quarter, the Patriots had to settle for a field goal and three points instead of taking it in for a touchdown. Stephen Gostkowski's 31 yard field goal was good, putting the Patriots ahead of the game by three.
Then, with 51 seconds remaining Brady, sent the ball rolling for a full yard to Mike Vrabel for the score.
Since the beginning of the game, the Bengals had been pretty asleep, but woke up early in the second quarter when Carson Palmer threw a one-yard pass to T.J. Houshmandzadeh for the first points for the Bengals.
Brady and Moss—who hooked up for 9 catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns—have had one very interesting relationship, with the veteran quarterback sending two passes his way for scores tonight.
At 4-0, the Patriots now join an elite group of teams currently undefeated, and will take on the Cleveland Browns at home next Sunday.
