QB Joe Burrow Admits Luck Was on Bengals’ Side vs. Chiefs | heavy
Overall, the Cincinnati Bengals had a very strong outing during their 34-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17. However, if you watched the game you couldn’t help but notice luck was on Cincinnati’s side, especially late in the game.

Chiefs Reaction: Defense Fails To Chase Bengals Down | fullpresscoverage
This loss was different than most other losses for the Chiefs this season. More often than not, the defense was the bigger issue for Kansas City. Possibly, that is the first time where that has been true since September. The offense failed to score in the second half. Though, they had a red hot first half and did not possess the ball hardly at all in the final 30 minutes of game clock. The Chiefs will now look to regroup and learn from Sunday’s very fixable mistakes.
