Recap


Bengals 28, Chiefs 6:
Andy Dalton threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as the visiting Bengals moved back to .500 with a rout of the lowly Chiefs.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 101 yards and a touchdown for Cincinnati (5-5), which has won two straight after losing four in a row. Bengals second-year wideout A.J. Green caught a touchdown pass for a franchise single-season record ninth straight game - one shy of the all-time franchise record set by Carl Pickens during the 1994-95 seasons.

Kansas City (1-9) suffered a seventh straight loss and fell to 0-5 at Arrowhead, where fans were seen passing out bags to put over their heads during the fourth quarter. The Chiefs benched quarterback Matt Cassel in favor of Brady Quinn to start the second half, but it mattered little.

The Bengals scored 21 straight points after Ryan Succop's 34-yard field goal gave the Chiefs just their second lead in regulation this season. Green capped an 11-play, 78-yard drive late in the first quarter by making a great one-handed catch in the corner of the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown.

After Jermaine Gresham's touchdown catch was reversed by replay, Dalton's 1-yard touchdown run off a naked bootleg on fourth-and-goal made it 14-3 with just under eight minutes left in the half. Green-Ellis' 1-yard score with 53 seconds left until halftime made it 21-3.

Dalton finished 18-of-29 for 230 yards. Cassel was 8-of-16 for 93 yards, while Quinn finished 9-of-14 for 95 yards.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Cincinnati was just 1-of-7 on third down, but 3-for-3 on fourth down - including a fake punt -  in the first half. ... The Chiefs managed just 148 yards in the first half, with 65 coming in the final minute. ... Kansas City entered with the worst red zone offense in the NFL (31.8 percent).
