This game was Dalton’s second straight good game, and with no interceptions. He finished the game 18 of 29 for 230 yards and two TDs, with a TD rushing as well. Green-Ellis had his best day as a Bengal, rushing for 101 yards and a TD. Green, as mentioned, continued his TD streak, and had another big day, tallying 6 catches for 91 yards. Jermaine Gresham was huge, with 6 receptions for 69 yards, and some tough running to pick up important yards. On defense, everybody got involved in holding the Chiefs down. Geno Atkins had another sack and forced a couple of fumbles. Pacman Jones and Michael Johnson also had sacks. The rest of the defense did a solid job slowing down the KC offense and getting off the field in 3rd down situations.
The Bengals head back home this week to face Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders next Sunday. It will be an important game against the former franchise QB. Fans will demand a win, and a loss will awaken the angst in Cincinnati.
