BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran 1 yard in the fourth quarter for the game's only touchdown, and the Cincinnati Bengals ended Tom Brady's long streak of touchdown passes on Sunday in a 13-6 victory over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots.

The Bengals (3-2) sacked Brady four times and kept New England (4-1) out of the end zone on a first-and-goal from the 1-yard line late in the fourth quarter.

Adam "Pacman" Jones picked off Brady's desperation pass inside the 5-yard line with 16 seconds left to clinch it.

Brady had thrown a touchdown pass in 52 straight games, second-longest in NFL history behind Drew Brees. The Patriots were held out of the end zone for the first time since a 16-9 loss to the Jets on Sept. 20, 2009.
