KANSAS CITY (AP) -- Andy Dalton threw for 230 yards and accounted for three touchdowns, A.J. Green caught a touchdown pass in his ninth straight game and the Cincinnati Bengals beat the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 28-6 on Sunday.

Green finished with six catches for 91 yards in another dazzling performance, Mohamed Sanu had a scoring grab and BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 101 yards and a touchdown as the Bengals (5-5) won their second straight following a maddening four-game losing streak.

Cincinnati now plays its next four games against teams with losing records.

None of them are as bad as the Chiefs.

Jamaal Charles had 87 yards rushing for Kansas City (1-9), but that was the only highlight for a team that lost its seventh straight amid a gloomy crowd at Arrowhead Stadium.

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe left Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a neck injury sustained while trying to make a leaping grab in the first half.

Bowe was being covered on a deep pass down the sideline when he leaped up, bobbled the ball and then landed hard on the turf at Arrowhead Stadium. He was checked by several trainers on the bench, retreated to the locker room and then re-emerged without his helmet.

Kansas City is already playing without wide receiver Jon Baldwin, who wasn't cleared after sustaining a head and neck injury in last Monday night's loss at Pittsburgh.

Terrance Copper replaced Bowe. Steve Breaston was playing in place of Baldwin.
