Kansas City Chiefs
The Bengals look to continue their winning ways, as they head to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in a Sunday matinee affair. The Bengals are riding high off a dismantling at home against Eli Manning and the defending champion Giants, while the Chiefs are looking to rebound on a short week loss on Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Although it appears the two teams are trending in opposite directions, the Chiefs played tough against the perennial powerhouse Steelers and gave them all that they could handle. I expect the Chiefs to put up another gutsy performance at home, in a low scoring, defensive struggle.
When lining up the numbers, the Chiefs have a clear advantage running the football. Jamaal Charles has looked great at times this year, hovering around the top of the rushing leader board, while the Bengals Green-Ellis hasn’t caught his stride yet halfway through the season.
The passing attack has been a different story as sophomore sensation AJ Green has caught a touchdown pass in every game this season, and has been the go to target for second year QB Andy Dalton. Dalton does a nice job spreading the ball around, and has many weapons who can hurt you.
Can AJ Green continue his streak and find the end zone again vs the Chiefs?
The Chiefs will need some production at receiver not named Dwayne Bowe. Bowe is a beast, but can’t do it alone. For the Chiefs to win this game, they will need production from the likes of Steve Breaston or Tony Moeaki to help take the pressure off Bowe.
Let’s face it, both defenses haven’t been the greatest. They allow a lot of yards and average under 30 points a game. The difference will come on offense, and who makes the most out of their possessions. Settling for field goals in this one will not get it down, as it will be imperative for either team to find the end zone to gain success.
On paper, I’m intrigued to see how Cincinnati will bottle up Charles and force Cassel into long passing situations. On the flip side, I’m interested to see if AJ Green can find the end zone again. I don’t think this game will be a snooze fest, and will come down to a late possession to determine the winner.
KC will play tough at home, but the Bengals are the better team and will pull this one out.
Studs – Dwayne Bowe, Andy Dalton, Jamaal Charles, AJ Green

AJ Green of the Cincinati Bengals made an unbelievable one-handed grab while somehow keeping his feet inbounds for a touchdown during the first quarter of their match-up against the Kansas City Chiefs. The touchdown put the Bengals up 7-3 early in the game, and the grab will surely be on everyone’s highlight reel for the forseeable future. The catch was AJ’s 9th straight...
Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe says he wants to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs and doesn’t want to play anywhere else, even though before the season started there was a report that he wanted out of Kansas City.
“Why wouldn’t I want to stay here? It’s a no-brainer for me,” said Bowe, per the Kansas City Star. “I never said I didn’t want to be here. I never said that. This...

Cincinnati Bengals (4-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-8)
Almost every year, we have one team go from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Right now, every playoff team from last year has at least 4 wins. That means one of two things. We’re not going to have a team like that this year (only happened 1 other time in the last decade) or either Detroit, New Orleans, or Cincinnati is about...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Chiefs, and their fans, seemingly have nothing left to get mad about.
Instead, an eerie silence cast over the in-house crowd of about 50,000 fans at Arrowhead Stadium for most of Sunday afternoon's Chiefs-Bengals game, won handily and rather uneventfully by the Bengals, 28-6.
Obviously, Chiefs fans had virtually nothing to cheer about, just two short Ryan...
Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe left Sunday's game in the second quarter with a head injury. His return is doubtful.Fantasy Spin:Bowe landed on his head and went to the locker room. When he returned he didn't have his helmet with him, a pretty sure sign that he's not retuning anytime soon.
