The Bengals have permitted 127 points (14.1 ppg) in their nine wins. Cincinnati is (.845) at home under Marvin Lewis when holding opponents to 21 points or less, including a 5-0 mark in Putting points on the board early will be a priority against a Cincinnati squad that ranks ninth in the league by outscoring its opponents by a 55-point margin (176 to 121) in the fi rst half. The Bengals typically don t fare well if they fall behind early. Cincinnati has lost 17 of its last 20 games when trailing at halftime.

7 THE LAST TIME Bengals 16, Chiefs 6 December 28, 2008 Paul Brown Stadium 63,984 KANSAS CITY CINCINNATI The Kansas City offensive attack was held to just 220 yards against the Bengals as QB Tyler Thigpen completed 19 of 36 passes for 191 yards and the Chiefs running game produced just 31 yards in a 16-6 loss at Cincinnati to round out the 2008 campaign. The Chiefs got the ball first and QB Tyler Thigpen hit his first two passes, but the drive stalled and P Dustin Colquitt booted the ball away. Cincinnati s first drive picked up three first downs, but the Chiefs defense stiffened and held on a fourth-and-six play when CB Brandon Flowers knocked down a pass from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to WR Glenn Holt. The next time Cincinnati got the ball, it moved 63 yards on 11 plays with four first downs. Again, the Chiefs defense stopped the march towards the end zone and K Shayne Graham hit a 38-yard FG to give the Bengals a 3-0 lead. The Bengals started a drive early in the second quarter that produced the game s first TD. Fitzpatrick led the Cincinnati offense on a six-play, 87-yard march with five first downs. RB Cedric Benson eventually scored on a two-yard run over right tackle, pushing the Cincinnati lead to The Chiefs offense couldn t get anything going in the second period, as they had the ball three times and twice went three and out. Cincinnati got the ball back and Fitzpatrick moved his group 81 yards on 16 plays, picking up five first downs. Facing first-and-goal at the 10-yard line, the Chiefs defense held the Bengals to a two-yard loss on three plays. Graham kicked a 30-yard FG and the Bengals held a 13-0 halftime lead. After the teams traded three punts to begin the second half, the Chiefs moved into Cincinnati territory for the first time. They ended up turning the ball over on downs, when a Thigpen throw to Darling fell incomplete. The Bengals added three more points in the fourth quarter, set up by a fumbled exchange between Thigpen and RB Jamaal Charles. Graham turned the turnover into a 43-yard FG to put the Bengals ahead The Chiefs offense turned around and finally got something going, moving the ball down the field and picking up six first downs along the way. Head coach Herm Edwards challenged a ruling on the field that put WR Dwayne Bowe out of bounds short of the goal line, but the play was upheld, setting the Chiefs up with firstand-goal at the one with 4:00 remaining. A TD pass from Thigpen to Bowe on fourth-and-goal from the one was then nullified by an offensive pass interference call against Bowe. The Chiefs were given new life on fourth-and-goal from the 10 when the Bengals were flagged for defensive pass interference against TE Tony Gonzalez. On second-and-goal from the five, Gonzalez then hauled in a TD from Thigpen to make the count 16-6 in favor of the Bengals. Thigpen s two-point pass attempt fell incomplete. The Bengals recovered Kansas City s ensuring onside kick. Cincinnati then gained two first downs and was able to run out the clock for the Bengals third consecutive victory.

12 THE LAST GAME Browns 41, Chiefs 34 December 20, 2009 Arrowhead Stadium 53,315 CLEVELAND KANSAS CITY In a game filled with big plays and drastic momentum swings, Cleveland ultimately prevailed by a margin thanks to two kickoff return TDs by WR Josh Cribbs and a franchise-record 286 rushing yards by RB Jerome Harrison, who scored three TDs. QB Matt Cassel led the Chiefs on an eight-play, 58-yard TD drive to tie the game at with 2:20 left to play, connecting on a 12-yard TD pass to WR Mark Bradley on fourth and six. Cleveland answered as Harrison broke off a 28-yard TD run to give the Browns a lead with 0:44 left in the contest. Cassel finished the game with a season-high 331 passing yards and led the Chiefs to Cleveland s 26-yard line before his final pass attempt fell incomplete. After Cleveland opened the contest with a 12-play, 46-yard scoring drive that culminated with a 47-yard FG by K Phil Dawson, Kansas City was driving before RB Tim Castille lost a fumble. But the Chiefs defense returned the favor as CB Brandon Carr grabbed an errant QB Brady Quinn pass and returned it 31 yards to the Cleveland 49-yard line. Kansas City would be forced to settle for a 30-yard K Ryan Succop FG to tie the game at 3-3. Cribbs took the ensuing kickoff back for a 100-yard TD, pushing the Browns back into the lead, making the score 10-3 with 3:56 left in the first quarter. After a Chiefs punt, the Browns tacked on a 30-yard Dawson FG increasing Cleveland s lead to 13-3 with 12:32 left in the opening half. The Chiefs would answer with a nine-yard TD pass from Cassel to WR Chris Chambers, trimming the Browns lead to with 10:04 left in the first half. After a Cleveland punt, Cassel hit TE Brad Cottam for 24 yards. Three plays later, RB Jamaal Charles broke loose for a 47-yard TD run, giving the Chiefs the lead with 4:10 left in the first half. Charles would finish the day with a career-high 154 rushing yards. The Browns next possession stalled and an errant punt snap was recovered by LB Andy Studebaker in the end zone, giving the Chiefs a lead with 2:44 left before intermission. But Cleveland would regain the momentum almost immediatley as Cribbs returned the ensuing kickoff for a 103-yard TD, cutting the Chiefs advantage to After Kansas City was forced to punt on its opening possession of the second half, Harrison broke off a 71-yard TD run to give the Browns a advantage. CB Brandon Flowers registered an INT to halt another Browns scoring drive, but the Chiefs failed to capitalize. Early in the fourth quarter, Harrison extended the Browns lead with an eight-yard TD run making it with 12:09 left to play. The Chiefs added a 27-yard Succop FG, narrowing the Cleveland margin to with 8:08 left in the game. After Dawson s subsequent 52-yard FG attempt came up short, the Chiefs took the ball on their own 42-yard line with 4:26 remaining. Cassel then orchestrated a game-tying drive as his 12-yard TD to Bradley made the count Harrison put the final dagger into the Chiefs with his 28-yard TD run with 0:44 left to play. Cassel attempted to put together one final drive for the Chiefs, but there wasn t enough time as the Browns left Arrowhead with a victory.
