Bengals defenders wouldn't let "its preseason" be an excuse for their play. Said they might not use the whole playbook, but they use enough, and missed tackles are missed tackles.

The extent of Shawn Williams injury isn't known yet but Bengals players knew it was bad when he started screaming. That's why they all took a knee. He will get an MRI if he hasn't already.

3 Chiefs throw TD passes in 30-12 win over Bengals

Rookie Patrick Mahomes threw a pair of touchdown passes, solidifying his spot as the Chiefs' primary backup, and three Kansas City quarterbacks threw for a score on Saturday night during a 30-12 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

A coach, likely Marvin Lewis, can clearly be heard yelling at the team through the media room, which is next to the locker room. That's how the night went‬ for the Bengals.

Bengals lose to the Chiefs 30-12. Defense has a lot of work to do.

Hardy Nickerson has a lower back injury.

Andre Smith has been with the second-team at right tackle, same as practice. It looks like that's going to be his spot moving forward.

AJ McCarron was intercepted after his pass to Chris Brown was tipped. Chiefs score again on the next play.

Bengals enter halftime trailing 16-9. I like what I've seen from Alex Erickson, Jordan Willis and Josh Malone. Lots of young players look good tonight.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Alex Erickson entered training camp as a guy that looked like he would be hard pressed to make the roster due to numbers. But he's done everything right this summer. I think he's made his case.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

AJ McCarron is now in at QB with the first-team offensive line. Joe Mixon and Tyler Boyd remain in the game.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Josh Shaw put up absolutely no fight on that touchdown pass. He was chasing someone else and Demetrius Harris was wide open. Hard to tell who was responsible.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Jordan Willis should have sacked Patrick Mahomes there but Mahomes was able to scramble away to almost score a TD. Have to love the speed and burst off the line though. Easy to see the potential.

Nick Vigil went for the diving tackle there. Couldn't quite get it but tripped up the runner enough for Kevin Minter to come In and deliver a tackle for a 5-yard loss.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Nick Vigil had a nice move there, going airborne to try to get the interception. Broke yo the pass, but no pick yet.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Jake Elliott is good from 32 yards. Wonder if that's the last we'll see of Andy Dalton tonight? He was getting pressured quite a few times and sacked once, although the protection was great on that pass to Malone.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie Josh Malone had a really nice catch with a defender hanging on him. He's able to use his size to make the tough catches.

Shawn Williams has a right elbow injury and is out for the game.

Shawn Williams gets pats and high fives from his teammates before he is carted off. Trainers helped him into the cart but he was able to briefly stand. It's unclear what the injury was. He shook his head as he left.
