The Chiefs travel to Ohio to play the Bengals after a loss on the road last week to the Packers at Lambeau Field, while the undefeated Bengals are seeking a 4-0 record and a Super Bowl 50 spot.
For the Chiefs of KC fans, your team coming off a scalping by the Packers, and with a week’s rest to regroup and figure out how to cope with another talented offensive team in the Bengals. In that game however the Chiefs were able to end their dry spell of a WR not scoring a TD for some 18 games, as WR J. Maclin in the 3rd period had a 5 yard reception for a TD that was his best game since joining the Chiefs as he had 8 receptions for 142 yards and the 1 TD. That performance by WR Maclin must be good news for QB A. Smith who normally has relied on TE T. Kelce and RB J. Charles for the long receptions. But they must see improvements in the offensive line since QB Smith was sacked in their ultimate 2 games some 11 total times.
Also in that game the Chiefs defense was not much better than their offense as the struggled also allowing GB QB Rodgers to pass for 5 TD’s and some 334 yards. Thus the Chiefs must bring pressure on Bengals QB Dalton and they need their defensive star from 2014 J. Houston to step up his performance as last year he had 22 sacks for the season, and to date this season he has just 3.
It will also be a must that the Chiefs secondary improve for this game since the Bengals also have a team of talented receivers, and they combined have only faced 2 interceptions to date in 2015.
Now if you’re a Bengals of Cincinnati fan, then you know your team and their QB Dalton with a 3-0 record have silenced their critics and their offense seems to get better with each week’s passing. In their 1st 3 games they have averaged accumulating some 414.4 yards per game while scoring an average of some 28.4 points in each game.
Their brilliance has been because of their star QB Dalton’s performances that in the 1st 3 games have passed for some 8 TD’s with just 1 intercept on some 867 passing yards. Naturally their elite offense made up of RB’s in G. Bernard and J. Hill and receivers like M. Jones, T. Eifert and A. Green who are all over the field seeking receptions from QB Dalton.
In the last game against the Ravens of Baltimore, QB Dalton passed for 3 TD’s and 384 yards in the 28-24 wins, while WR Green outplayed the Ravens defensive secondary as he had 10 receptions and 2 TD’s and accumulated some 227 yards on receptions.
Defensively the Chiefs will have to be ready for the Chiefs strong running game, but if they play the same as the played against the Ravens, they will be more than ready to take on the Chiefs who presently rank 5th in the NFL at 76.8 for rushing defense and they only allowed the Ravens to rush for 36 yards. The Bengals in their ultimate 2 home games are 2-0 straight up.
The experts are predicting that the Chiefs comeback to life and beat the Bengals at 32-27!
