You could look at the Bengals poor performance several ways:
1) The Chiefs aren’t AS bad as people say they are. They’ve been playing better lately with Jamal Charles turning out to be a really good running back. Their defense played pretty well.
2) The Bengals didn’t play well because it has been an emotional week and a half, with Chris Henry’s funeral. They had to fly back from San Diego on Sunday night and then fly to Louisiana on their normal day off on Tuesday. It was a tough week for them.
3) The Bengals play down to their competition.
4) The Bengals are really that bad.
