5-1, 1st in AFC West

Just another of what's becoming a routine half tonight for Patrick Mahomes against the Bengals. He's 19-of-25 for 234 yards and three TDs as the Chiefs lead 24-7 at halftime. The Chiefs scored on four of their five possessions, the failure coming when Harrison Butker missed a field goal attempt for the first time this season. Mahomes and the Chiefs will have the chance to inflict more damage to start the second half. They'll receive the kickoff.

That's three TD passes tonight for Patrick Mahomes, none to receivers named Hill, Kelce or Watkins. The Chiefs have that much going for them offensively.

The Chiefs were in all sorts of disarray on Cincinnati's touchdown drive. They committed three penalties, including two for having 12 players on the field. They also had trouble staying with A.J. Green, who is already over 100 yards midway through the second quarter.

Seven games into the season, Patrick Mahomes has 20 TD passes. That's 10 away from the 54-year-old team record and six shy of the 26 that Alex Smith threw last season.

It's looking like Kareem Hunt's night. He had 56 of the Chiefs' 95 yards on their opening drive, including a six-yard TD catch.

LB Tanoh Kpassagnon will be active for the Chiefs tonight after missing last week's game because of an ankle injury. I'm still expecting rookie Breeland Speaks to start in place of Justin Houston but Kpassagnon should play.

Newly signed offensive lineman Jeff Allen will be available to play for the Chiefs tonight but won't be in the starting lineup. The Chiefs will again go with Jordan Devey at center in place of the injured Mitch Morse at center and Andrew Wylie at right guard in place of the injured Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.

Best bets for Bengals-Chiefs

ESPN's Vegas experts explain where the betting value lies in this matchup between two teams at the top of their divisions.

Mahomes' skill set is built to last (0:31)

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Patrick Mahomes has a 58.3% completion percentage when on the run (8+ mph at time of throw) this season. That's above his expected completion percentage of 49.2% on those throws, per NFL Next Gen Stats. And his completion percentage has actually gone up the faster he's been running.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs, who are down a starting guard and center because of injuries, signed veteran offensive lineman Jeff Allen. Allen played from the Chiefs from 2012 through 2015, when he started 36 games, mostly at guard. Allen, who played the past two seasons for the Houston Texans, can also play tackle. Starting guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is on the injured reserve lost with ankle and leg injuries. Center Mitch Morse has a concussion.
