Bengals Defeat The Chiefs 28-6

The Cincinnati Bengals have kept their playoff hopes alive with a 28-6 win over the Kansas City Chiefs and returning to .500 on the season.


Bengals Take 28-6 Lead On Sanu Touchdown

Andy Dalton continues to slice the Chiefs' secondary like a surgeon, putting together another great touchdown drive. Cincinnati used third down conversions throughout the drive to take a commanding 28-6 lead over Kansas City. The second 13-play drive of the day had contributions from a number of different Bengals. Jermaine Gresham, A.J. Green, Cedric Peerman, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Mohamed Sanu all pitched on for a beautiful drive.

Sanu finished the drive off with a 14-yard touchdown reception on a third and ten. The Bengals continue their dominance over the Chiefs as Arrowhead Stadium empties--the remnants are "boo birds". Bengals are in command in the fourth quarter.


Terence Newman Out With A Concussion

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Terence Newman suffered a concussion earlier during the game, we think during a play in which Newman was attempting a tackle and was blasted by linebacker Vontaze Burfict with accidental friendly-fire. Though he came back into the game a few plays after that.

Newman is out for the rest of the game.


Bengals And Chiefs Exchange Punts

The second half opens with an exchange of punts between both teams, each following failed third and long conversions due to self-imposed mistakes. Cincinnati nearly put together a time-consuming drive, taking the football with 7:34 remaining in the third quarter, still leading 21-6 at Cincinnati's 19-yard line. After picking up a handful of first downs, Jay Gruden called a pitch left to Mohamed Sanu on third and three, losing four yards.

Well, if you can't win the drive, then win the field position game.

Kevin Huber punted the football inside the five-yard line where Dre Kirkpatrick downs the football on Kansas City's four-yard line.



Bengals have taken a 21-6 into the locker room, scheduled to take the kickoff to start the second half. Now it's time for the Bengals to put this game away.


Bengals Take 21-6 Lead On Green-Ellis Touchdown

Everything has seemingly gone right for the Bengals in Kansas City today. Cincinnati capped an impressive 13-play drive to take a commanding 21-6 lead going into halftime. The Bengals primarily used the run to gain their big lead and had a huge showing from BenJarvus-Green Ellis. Eight of the 13 plays were runs.

The drive showcased an impressive 21-yard gallup from Green-Ellis, as well as a 17-yard gain from Cedric Peerman. Green-Ellis finished off the drive with a one-yard touchdown. Kansas City added a late field goal right before the half to cut the lead to 21-6.


Bengals Take 14-3 Lead On Dalton Naked Boot

Thanks to a five-yard penalty on Kansas City's punt, the Cincinnati Bengals open a possession with over ten minutes remaining in the second quarter. On the first down play, first of the possession, Andy Dalton fakes the handoff and flings the football down the right sidelines, where A.J. Green makes an amazing over the shoulder 40-yard reception. The Chiefs were penalized for unnecessary roughness on the play, giving the Bengals another nine yards to the Chiefs eight-yard line.

Again the Bengals stall. Momentarily. A one-yard gain by BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and Andy Dalton taking a redzone sack, losing four yards on the play, setting up a third and goal from the 11-yard line. Dalton connects with Gresham, five yards shy of the endzone. Yet Gresham doesn't go down. In fact he carries a handful of Chiefs defenders into the endzone for the touchdown. At least at first. A review determines that the football was downed inside the one-yard line.

Andy Dalton fakes the handoff and runs a naked boot to the left without a single Chiefs defender thinking that this play was possible. Easy touchdown.

Bengals take a 14-3 lead.


Quick Observations In Second Quarter

We've had some technical issues with the site today, so we wanted to reset the day with some observations.

The Cincinnati Bengals offense has regressed into their more familiar third down issues, failing to convert a third down through five attempts on Sunday. Additionally Andy Dalton is simply off-target today, either deep or intermediate. Yet the feeling today is that the Cincinnati Bengals offense will do everything they can to keep this game close. Even their touchdown drive earlier required a fake punt and another fourth down conversion, blown coverage against Jermaine Gresham and amazing one-handed grab by A.J. Green.

Defensively Cincinnati is playing strong, though with some help from an otherwise mediocre Chiefs offense. Linebackers are playing fast and strong, with Rey Maualuga making some quick and aggressive shots in the backfield.

With over ten minutes remaining in the second quarter, the Bengals are holding onto a 7-3 lead.


Bengals Recover Fumble, Nugent Misses Field Goal

After the Bengals took advantage of an odd drive where they converted two fourth down conversions, one on a fake punt, their defense stepped up once again. Cincinnati's defense failed to get off of the field quickly because of a Terence Newman holding penalty, but they bounced back quickly by recovering a Peyton Hillis fumble. Geno Atkins, who has had a great quarter-plus, forced the fumble and Vontaze Burfict recovered it.

Unfortunately, the Bengals squandered great field position and an opportunity to take a stranglehold on the game. After two BenJarvus Green-Ellis carries that netted eight yards, quarterback Andy Dalton was sacked on third down. That sack forced a 50-yard field goal attempt by Mike Nugent and he pushed it wide left.

Bengals lead 7-3.


Chiefs Take 3-0 Lead on 34-Yard Field Goal

Both teams exchanged punts to initiate their respective offensive possessions opening a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Kansas City with the Chiefs opening their second possession of the game at Cincinnati's 30-yard line. Matt Cassel opened their second drive of the game with a 22-yard beauty over the middle to a well-positioned Tony Moeaki on a vertical to the Chiefs 47-yard line.

Kansas City then called Jamaal Charles' number on three consecutive runs, picking up 29 yards to the Bengals 24-yard line with just under 10 minutes remaining. A five-run Charles run and incomplete down the right sidelines near the front right pylon later, the Chiefs have third and five from the Chiefs 19-yard line with 8:40 left.

Matt Cassel takes the shotgun snap, looks and throws left for a four-yard Dexter McCluster receptions, falling one-yard shy with a great Leon Hall tackle prior to the first down. The Chiefs take a 3-0 lead on a Ryan Succop 34-yard field goal.

Charles picked up 36 yards on five carries during Kansas City's 59-yard field goal drive.


Bengals Force Three And Out To Start Game

Bengals captains joined Kansas City Chiefs fans at midfield, calling tails, winning the coin toss and electing defer to the second half. The Chiefs will receive the opening kickoff with the Bengals on defense. The Bengals captains are Andre Smith, Andy Dalton, Rey Maualuga, Leon Hall and Brian Leonard.

After returning the opening kickoff to the Chiefs 24-yard line, Jamaal Charles combined two runs for seven yards to the 31-yard line, setting up a third down, which floated out of Matt Cassel's hands harmlessly to the turf. Three and out and the Chiefs punt the football.


Chiefs Move O-Line Around Due To Injuries

According to Pro Football Focus' grading system, two of the top four players (Jon Asamoah and Ryan Lilja) for the Kansas City Chiefs are out against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday. What does that mean for the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line?

According to Joel Thorman with Arrowhead Pride, right tackle Eric Winston will start at right guard with rookie Donald Stephenson making only his second NFL start at right tackle. Russ Hochstein, signed earlier this year, will start at center for the injured Ryan Lilja. Look at it this way: Stephenson and Hochstein have 75 offensive snaps between them this season.


Rookie Sanu Expected To Make First NFL Start at WR

It was a career game for Mohamed Sanu last week against the New York Giants, posting four receptions and securing his first career touchdown in the NFL.

Now Sanu will reach another milestone against the Kansas City Chiefs, expected to make his first start at wide receiver -- he started against the Washington Redskins as the quarterback. Sanu is replacing Andrew Hawkins who suffered a knee injury during Friday's practice.

Sanu is expected to play the slot during three-wide formations with a combination of Brandon Tate and Ryan Whalen playing outside opposite A.J. Green.

Through seven games played during his rookie season, Sanu has generated nine receptions for 103 yards receiving and a touchdown.
