Even before the leaves turn on Columbia Parkway the 3-0 Bengals have a golden chance to go up two games on Pittsburgh and three games ahead of Baltimore just four days into October when they play the 1-2 Chiefs Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) at Paul Brown Stadium.

If Sunday’s game was in San Diego, the Bengals would be a lock. I’ve had the pleasure of calling eight sporting events in San Diego and Cincinnati has won all of them. 2001: Bearcats beat BYU and Kent State in NCAA Tourney to advance to Sweet 16. 2005: Reds sweep a 3-game series vs. the […]
