Bengals vs. Chiefs score update: Andy Dalton leads Cincinnati to 21-6 halftime lead

Donald Miralle

The Chiefs are down big again at Arrowhead, losing 21-6 to the Bengals after 30 minutes of play.

The Kansas City Chiefs trail the Cincinnati Bengals, 21-6, after one half at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs opened the scoring with a Ryan Succop 34-yard field goal on their second possession of the game, but it was all Bengals from there. Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati offense responded to the field goal with an 11-play, 78-yard touchdown drive to take the lead. Dalton hit superstar wideout A.J. Green for a short four-yard score to cap the drive.

Dalton would connect with Green again on the Bengals second scoring drive. It was a big 40-yard strike that quickly moved Cincinnati inside the Chiefs' 10-yard line. It appeared Jermaine Gresham scored his fourth touchdown of the season when he dragged Eric Berry four yards into the end zone, but replay review overturned the score. Dalton, however, would run it in one player later on a bootleg to the left side.

It went from bad to worse for the Chiefs, as Cincinnati added one more touchdown in the final two minutes to push the lead to 21-3. The Bengals ate up another five minutes of clock on an 11-play drive that finished with Benjarvus Green-Ellis punching it in from one yard out.

Matt Cassel was able to lead a final minute drive to set up another Succop field goald, but the Chiefs defense will have to get some stops in the third quarter if Kansas City is to have any shot in the second half.
