STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Cincinnati has won last three games in series. … Chiefs haven’t started 1-3 since 2012. … Andy Reid’s only coaching tie in the NFL came at Paul Brown Stadium in 2008, when his Eagles tied Bengals 13-13. … RB Jamaal Charles’ career-high three TDs rushing against Packers moved him into third place on Chiefs career list. … QB Alex Smith was 20 of 30 for 201 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions, and passer rating of 85.6 in only game against Cincinnati. … Chiefs have allowed an NFL-high 14 sacks. … CB Sean Smith returns from three-game suspension for violating league’s substance-abuse policy. Phillip Gaines, who filled in for him, tore an ACL against Packers and is out for season. … Win would match Bengals’ third-best start in club history; e 1975 and 1988 teams opened 6-0. … QB Andy Dalton’s 121 passer rating ranks second in NFL to Aaron Rodgers (135.4). Dalton leads AFC with fourth-quarter passer rating of 147.5. … WR A.J. Green was the AFC’s offensive player of week after catching 10 passes for career-high 227 yards and two TDs. … Fantasy: Charles is facing defense that’s been exceptionally good against run so far. Baltimore managed only 36 yards rushing.
