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.
