Tom Brady's touchdown streak ends at 52

Tom Brady was just a few games away from breaking Drew Brees record of 54 consecutive games with a touchdown pass. But Brady, as New England fell 13-6 in Cincinnati, saw his streak end at 52.

Brady's final attempt of the game, with the Patriots looking to tie up the Bengals in a pouring rain, was an interception on an Adam Jones self-tip drill.

It was the first time Brady was held without a touchdown since January 3, 2010 against the Texans.

And Sunday's game was also only the fourth time since 2001 (when Brady took over in New England) that the Patriots had been held to six points or less.

The loss also takes the Patriots off the list of undefeated teams and drops them to 4-1 on the season.
