The Cincinnati Bengals will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in the NFL with the Bengals looking to pull their regular season record back to level with a win against one of the worst teams in the league this year so far. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link provided below.
Cincinnati come into this game with a record of 4-5 and currently lie third in the AFC North. They are currently two games behind Pittsburgh who are 6-3, and a further game behind AFC North division leaders the Baltimore Ravens.
Meanwhile the Kansas City Chiefs have had a horrendous season so far, coming into this match up with a record of 1-8. That of course makes them bottom of the AFC West, which is currently being led by the 6-3 Denver Broncos. The Chiefs' hopes of a playoff spot have long gone, but if they can claim an unlikely win today they could potentially move to within a game of the 3-6 Oakland Raiders and hope to leapfrog them before the regular season is over.
The Bengals will come into this game on a high, brimming with renewed confidence having beaten the New York Giants last week. That has given them a glimmer of hope for the postseason, and a win here could get them back into the playoff picture in the AFC North. Especially considering the injury to influential quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger.
A win for the Bengals today would signify the first time the team has reached the .500 landmark this season since Week 6.
Cincinnati made the playoffs last season, but have not made back to back playoffs in decades. They will be hoping to be able to rewrite that history this season, and if they are to fulfill their ambitions, a win against a team playing as poorly as the Kansas City Chiefs is essential.
