CINCINNATI (AP) - Kevin Huber's best punt came in the worst conditions he's ever experienced as a kicker.

He jogged onto the field at Paul Brown Stadium as a storm moved in on Sunday, bringing blinding rain and a nasty wind. Huber blocked it out and let off a 57-yard punt into the wind that helped the Bengals hold on for a 13-6 victory over the New England Patriots.

The ball traveled the whole distance on the fly, pinning the Patriots far away from the end zone. They couldn't make up the ground on their final drive during the storm. Huber's teammates point to the amazing kick as a key play in the game.

The Bengals (3-2) play at Buffalo (2-3) on Sunday.
