Bengals 16, Chiefs 6

CINCINNATI - Pacing the sideline in a bright red jacket and cap, coach Herm Edwards watched the Chiefs' season - and, perhaps, his days in charge of them - end with another dismal showing.

Cedric Benson ran for 111 yards and a TD, putting a little bite into the Bengals' depleted offense as Cincinnati completed its late-season surge with a victory over Kansas City.
