The Cincinnati Bengals capped their come-from-behind win over the Kansas City Chiefs with a fifteen-play 74 yard drive that ate up the final six minutes of the game, included seven attempts from the KC one-yard line, and finished with a short Butker field goal. The Bengals' risky clock strategy paid off big. Patrick Mahomes never saw the field again--which cost him the Completions Prop Bet and the Chiefs the game, the Bengals winning as time expired 34-31.
