FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots' videotape situation first was surfaced by a question at Bengals coach Zac Taylor's press conference on Monday where the first-year coach didn't offer any comment, and he continued that Thursday when speaking with the New England media on a conference call.
Taylor was asked multiple questions about the situation and he offered no comment.
“I have no comment on that," he said.
He was then asked why he has no comment.
“This is a tough opponent right now," he said. "We’re devoting all of our team making sure we’re prepared. That is where all of our focus is.”
The Bengals will enter the game at 1-12, but Taylor said he's been impressed with how his team has handled this week and not let what's gone on impact the locker room.
“Our team does a great job of focusing on what is important and part of playing in the NFL is being able to eliminate distractions and so they can come in a lot of different forms — injuries, anything that can happen off the field," he said. "I have been really proud of the way our guys have focused this week.”
The Patriots will go into the game coming off two straight losses and badly needing a win to avoid potentially not winning the AFC East.
Kickoff is set for 1:05 p.m. Sunday.
