Bengals 28, Chiefs 6

One Bengal punch knocks Chiefs out

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Bengals punt team trotted onto the field in the first quarter, shortly after the Chiefs had kicked a field goal to take a rare lead.

Then Cedric Peerman ran 32 yards with a fake, Cincinnati converted another fourth down on the same series and Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green with a short touchdown for all the offense needed against woeful Kansas City.

"It was a momentum-swinger," Cincinnati running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis said. "…When you get a momentum-swinger like that where you punch them right in the gut, it swings the momentum going your way."

Dalton threw for 230 yards, including another TD to Mohamed Sanu, and scampered for a score as the Bengals won their second straight.

Jamaal Charles had 87 yards rushing for Kansas City, the only highlight for a team that lost its seventh straight. Once-raucous Arrowhead Stadium was only about half-full most of the game.

"I focus on the game. I don't get into the crowd," Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said.
