The NFL moved tonight’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals into the Sunday night spot in order to present a more attractive matchup than the previously scheduled game between the 49ers and Rams. They were right about the game between the 49ers and Rams, which ended up a 39-10 win for Los Angeles, but they were wrong about the Chiefs and Bengals being any more competitive than that as the Chiefs came out of Sunday night with a 45-10 pasting over Cincinnati to send them to 6-1 on the season.
The Chiefs controlled the game from start to finish, putting up 551 yards of offense to just 239 from the Bengals. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 358 yards, four touchdowns and one interception, while running back Kareem Hunt had 86 rushing yards and one touchdown along with five catches for 55 yards and two touchdowns.
Cincinnati (4-3) got seven catches for 117 yards from wide receiver A.J. Green, but other than that the offense wasn’t nearly enough for them to make a game of things. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had 148 yards on the game with one touchdown and one interception on 15-of-29 passing.
Other standouts for Kansas City included tight end Travis Kelce, who had five catches for 95 yards; wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who had seven catches for 68 yards and one touchdown; and wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who had four catches for 74 yards. The win was the 200th in the career of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
Here’s a look back at some of the highlights from the latest Chiefs win.
