From Arrowhead Stadium
It was another game-day on Sunday and that meant another loss for the 2012 Chiefs.
The Cincinnati Bengals scored three touchdowns in the first half and one in the fourth quarter, but did not need the last two as they easily won 28-6 in front of a half-filled Arrowhead Stadium.
Whatever momentum and energy the Chiefs were able to produce from their effort in Pittsburgh on Monday night disappeared fairly quickly on this sunny November afternoon. The defense had trouble in the first half, but had a solid second half performance. The offense was bad the entire game, playing behind a patchwork offensive line and then losing WR Dwayne Bowe (neck) in the first half and LT Branden Albert (back) in the second half.
The Chiefs have now lost seven straight games and are now 1-9 on the season, the third season in the club’s 53-season history where they’ve held that record. The other seasons were 1987 and 2008.
