Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs

Clark catches Burrow

Frank Clark ended the Bengals’ opening drive when he dropped Burrow for a 10-yard loss on third down, forcing Cincinnati to punt.

Time for Travis

It was not known how much it affected Travis Kelce could take part in Sunday’s game as he suffered a back injury during Friday’s practice. That didn’t seem to bother him on Kansas City’s opening drive, however, when he made a grab and scramble for 16 yards on the Chiefs’ third play of the game.

Too harsh

Kadarius Tony came it’s close to catch a touchdown on the Chiefs’ opening drive. However, he was unable to grab the ball as it hit the ground, making it an incomplete pass.

Kansas City contested the play, but the fielding call was upheld. The Chiefs were able to get three points on the drive, though, as Harrison Butker connected on a 43-yard field goal on the next play.

Back to back bags

The Bengals’ offensive line struggled early. After allowing a third down sack on the first drive, the unit gave up sacks on back-to-back plays on the second drive.

Willie Gay came up with a second on second down to make it third and 18. Then, the Chiefs star defensive tackle Chris Jones came up with a sack on the next play, his first sack of the postseason.


The Chiefs moved the ball down the field again on their second drive of the game. As they made their way into Bengals territory, Kelsey made another first down grab. But immediately after catching the ball, Kelce threw the ball to the left Jerick McKinnon. The throw wasn’t clear, but McKinnon fell on it to make sure Kansas City kept possession.

Issia Pacheco made it into the end zone a few plays later, but the touchdown was wiped off the board due to a holding penalty. So the Chiefs settled for three again, giving them a 6-0 lead early in the second quarter.
