Bengals vs Chiefs: Andy Dalton 33-yard pass leads to Jeremy Hill touchdown

Immediately reacting to Cincinnati's 36-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, we take a look at one of the best plays of the afternoon... a 33-yard reception that led to Cincinnati's first touchdown of the game.

This was one of my favorite plays during Cincinnati's 36-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Cincinnati was facing third-and-two from their own 44-yard line with 13:19 remaining in the first. Center Russell Bodine skipped a shotgun snap, forcing Dalton to snag the football off the beautiful turf that covers the elegant Paul Brown Stadium.

Did he panic? No. Did he overreact? Not even close.

Once Dalton corralled the football, the veteran passer launched an amazing strike between defensive backs Husain Abdullah and Ron Parker, hitting wide receiver A.J. Green in stride for a 33-yard reception.

The completion put Cincinnati on Kansas City's 20-yard line with 12:47 remaining in the first. Following a quick toss to Green for nine yards, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson called Jeremy Hill's number on successive runs, including an eight-yard sprint around the right edge that led to an eight-yard touchdown and 7-0 lead with 11:41 remaining in the first.
