Week 16 of the NFL season is here, along with the holidays.
The Cincinnati Bengals (10-4) have now clinched a spot in the playoffs but look to keep their winning streak going against the New England Patriots (7-7) and another "GOAT" in Patriots head coach Bill Belichick on Saturday.
With goals of winning the AFC North and still with a chance to earn the top overall seed in the AFC, Zac Taylor and the Bengals will look to #RuleTheJungle at Gillette Stadium.
Belichick brings a team smarting after their stunning loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in a very un-Belichick way.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow knows despite their 7-7 record, Belichick and the Patriots are not a team to take lightly and will look to keep the offense humming as they did against Tampa Bay last Sunday.
However, injuries continue to mount, especially on the defensive side, with defensive end, Sam Hubbard already ruled out for the game and Cam Taylor-Britt and others with question marks beside their names leading up to the NFL scheduled kickoff of 1:00 p.m. eastern.
This week on our YouTube channel on In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, we've heard from Coach Taylor ( https://youtu.be/ZADHICjHjYo ) - Burrow ( https://youtu.be/ZtpFriwBi_0 ) - and his father, Jimmy Burrow ( https://youtu.be/o4Z63vKSVK8 ) along with a Livestream from the First Star Logistics studio on Tuesday ( https://youtu.be/Hz4PwyeZWPw ) leading up to the game.
Now, Lap gives you his Keys To Bengals Victory as pressure mounts to win a seventh consecutive game to stay at the top of the AFC North and make next week's match-up against the Buffalo Bills mean that much more when the Bengals will take the national stage on Monday Night Football.
