Chad Ochocinco Makes Bold Promise for Opener Against Patriots

During the Patriots' battle with the Bengals in Week 1, the Pats won't be the only ones on the field with a significant challenge.

That's because the Pats' minutemen, who stand guard in each endzone, will be the target for Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco's celebration, should he score a touchdown on Sunday, Sept. 12 at Gillette Stadium.

"If i am able to score week 1 in New England i will be taking the minute men rifle and firing as they do when the PATS score," he said via Twitter.

Needless to say, Pats fans everywhere are hoping their minutemen can stand tall in the face of the Pro-Bowler and perhaps attach bayonets to their rifles.

But the wideout wasn't all about fun and games as he also had some kind words to say for Leigh Bodden, who was placed on IR this week.

"@LeighBodden bruh you in my prayers on a speedy recovery, you give me hell
when we play and i was looking forward to next weeks game #1lu …  @LeighBodden bruh that shh was gonna be #EPIC man, i said it before and i
will say it again you give a (expletive) hell, get health."
