This weekend of gridiron action featured a number of entertaining games. One of the best matchups was the New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals. The tilt with the Bengals was Tom Brady’s first home game following his four game suspension stemming from the “deflate gate” debacle. These two squads certainly have their fair share of superstars. One would think Bengals and Patriots players drive some pretty amazing vehicles, considering their star power and exorbitant salaries. Let’s take a look at which team is victorious in this week’s Monday Night AutoBrawl Battle of the Cars.
James Develin might not receive much fanfare for his role as the Patriots’ fullback yet he certainly deserves respect for his taste in automobiles. Develin upgraded from his old Chevrolet Camaro to a stunning BMW 750Li. The Beamer is just large enough to accommodate Develin’s considerable size. The L series has an extra long wheelbase that provides ample seating space, especially in the rear. It also features a 445 horsepower engine, USB connections and Bluetooth. Yet the 750Li doesn’t sacrifice form for function. Take one look at this amazing piece of automotive machinery and you will agree it is one of the sleekest sedans on the market.
Develin earns a +3 in the Battle of the Cars.
Nate Solder has quickly become one of the game’s premier offensive linemen. He’s an absolute beast on the field and in terms of sheer size. He stands 6’8” and weighs 320 pounds. A man this large needs a mammoth vehicle. Solder picked out a decent ride in the Toyota 4Runner. Though the 4Runner isn’t the largest sport utility vehicle on the market, it is a solid performer. The 4Runner can fit upwards of seven passengers and head off-road without a problem. Yet Solder certainly makes enough money to drive a nicer vehicle with superior aesthetics and luxurious touches.
Solder gets a -1 in the Battle of the Cars.
Tom Brady just might be the best quarterback to ever play the game. Can you imagine Brady rolling around Foxboro and Boston in a simple sedan or coupe? The thought of such an image is somewhat laughable. Brady went all out when car shopping. He drives several vehicles, two of which are the Rolls-Royce Ghost and the Audi R8. Both cars are absolutely gorgeous and a blast to drive.
Brady tops out with a +5.
THE CINCINNATI BENGALS’ RIDES
Tyler Eifert has missed the early portion of the season with ankle and back injuries. When healthy, he is one of the NFL’s elite young tight ends. His choice in vehicles reflects his style of play: Big, fast and intimidating. Eifert drives a 2015 GMC Denali. This heavy duty pickup truck has plenty of power, luxurious niceties and the ability to take on just about any type of terrain.
Eifert scores a +4 in the Battle of the Cars.
Those who watch A.J. Green on a weekly basis will testify to his incredible hand-eye coordination. The superstar wide receiver might be on the skinny side yet his toughness makes up for his lack of bulk. Green’s specialty is pulling down Andy Dalton deep balls, often in a one-handed manner. His vehicle certainly matches his dramatic style of play. Green is the proud owner of a Porsche Panamera 4S. Take one look at this dreamy sports car and you’ll agree that
Green deserve a +5.
Andy Dalton’s vehicle was in the news for all the wrong reasons this past summer. Dalton mistakenly drove away from a gas station with the pump still in his Land Rover’s fuel tank. The snafu was observed and publicized by a Browns fan, making it all the more embarrassing. Though Land Rovers are nice, Dalton could do better with his $115 million contract.
He gets a +2 in the Battle of the Cars.
The Patriots beat the Bengals on the field this past weekend yet the Bengals players have superior rides. Powered by A.J. Green’s Porsche Panamera and Tyler Eifert’s GMC Denali, the Bengals win this week’s Battle of the Cars.
