The Cincinnati Bengals and Joe Burrow added to their story with an impressive 27-24 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon at Paycor Stadium.
The win marked the third time this calendar year the Bengals knocked off Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs and move them to 8-4 on the season, improving their playoff position in the AFC.
The win also marked the first time a team beat the Patrick Mahomes Chiefs three straight times.
The Bengals offense took the ball to begin the game and wasted little time putting together an 11-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a Burrow four-yard touchdown run. The defense showed again why many consider defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo, an NFL head coach in waiting, holding the Mahomes and the Chiefs to a field goal on a 10-play, 65-yard drive making it 7-3 at the end of the first quarter.
The second quarter started the same as Burrow would find Tee Higgins for a 12-yard touchdown strike ending a 9-play, 74-yard drive to put the Bengals up 14-3.
Mahomes showed why he’s one of the best following with a 14-play, 81-yard drive that ended with a Jerick McKinnon 2-yard touchdown pass to move the score to 14-10 at the half.
The Chiefs flexed their muscles at the start of the third quarter going up 17-14, as Isiah Pacheco ran for an eight-yard score and the Chiefs first lead of the day up 17-14.
The game wasn’t perfect for the Bengals, and after tying it at 17 on an Evan McPherson 36-yard field goal, they watched as Mahomes closed out an 8-play drive with a 3-yard touchdown run to put the Chiefs up 24-17 going into the fourth quarter.
It would be the last points of the day for Mahomes and company as the Bengals defense stepped forward with a massive play by Germaine Pratt, forcing the ball out of the arms of star tight end Travis Kelce.
Defensive end Joseph Ossai would make a flash play against Mahomes to stop the Chiefs final drive, while Burrow and crew would post the final 10-points on the board with another McPherson field goal and a Burrow to Chris Evans 8-yard touchdown pass for the 27-24 win.Dave Lapham In The Trenches YouTube Channel
