Dalton's offense keeps Bengals hot
CINCINNATI — Andy Dalton completes his first 10 passes and makes another big play. The defense allows nothing other than field goals. Through four games, the Bengals are still perfect.
And awfully impressive, too.
Dalton threw a 55-yard touchdown pass on the run — the type of throw he rarely has made in the past — and Cincinnati remained unbeaten by topping the Chiefs.
"We started the season with a special intent, and that's to be great," left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. "We're not satisfied with being good anymore."
For the Chiefs, Alex Smith was sacked five times and the offense only put up points on Cairo Santos' club-record seven field goals, one short of Rob Bironas' NFL record. Settling for that many field goals negated Kansas City's advantages in total yards (461-445), plays run (73-50) and time of possession (36:53-23:07).
