Chiefs and Bengals Scoreless in First Quarter

Not much happening on either side of the ball for both teams today. The second quarter is about to start. Here are some notes:


  • Despite giving up 24 yards rushing on three carries on the first drive, the Chiefs defense held the Bengals to an early punt on their first drive.
  • Jamaal Charles took a delayed pitch in the backfield, dodged two Bengals defenders and nearly jumped ahead four yards for the first down.
  • Matt Cassel had a solid first down pass to Dwayne Bowe on a 3rd and 9 with less than two minutes left in the first quarter.
  • CB Brandon Flowers made a great play on third down to break up a Palmer to Ocho Cinco pass.


  • LT Branden Albert was called for a blatant false start on the first play of the game.
  • Branden Albert was called for holding that negated a long Jamaal Charles run late in the first. 
  • On third down with less than minute to go in the first, the Chiefs' pocket collapsed and Cassel was sacked.
