In Week 12, the Chiefs opened as 14-point favorites against the Los Angeles Rams, winning that game 26-10 at Arrowhead to extend their season record to 9-2 — which puts them on top of both the AFC West and the entire conference. The Bengals are now 7-4, which puts them just behind the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North. After opening as 1.5-point favorites over the Tennessee Titans in Week 12, the Bengals emerged with a 20-16 win.
