Bengals trick play leads to early lead on Chiefs

Not that it takes much trickery to get a leg up on the Chiefs, but the Bengals just used a fake punt to reclaim the lead from the Chiefs.

A 32-yard run on a fake punt by Cedric Peerman was just one of two fourth-down conversions on the Bengals drive (Andy Dalton scrambled for the other).

Dalton capped it with a 4-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green, setting a new franchise record.

For Green, it was his ninth straight game with a touchdown, surpassing a mark set by T.J. Housmandzadeh.

The early field goal by Ryan Succop gave the Chiefs their first home lead of the year, but it was short-lived.
