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 Left his game at home – Jermaine Gresham
