QB Alex Smith was 20 of 30 for 201 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions, and passer rating of 85.6 in only game against Cincinnati. ... Chiefs have allowed an NFL-high 14 sacks. ... CB Sean Smith returns from three-game suspension for violating league's substance-abuse policy. Phillip Gaines, who filled in for him, tore an ACL against Packers and is out for season. ... Win would match Bengals' third-best start in club history; e 1975 and 1988 teams opened 6-0. ... QB Andy Dalton's 121 passer rating ranks second in NFL to Aaron Rodgers (135.4).
