including Patrick Mahomes' injured ankle and Travis Kelce's back injury.
The Chiefs recovered the ball thanks to a big defensive stop by Chris Jones, but they struggled in the fourth quarter.
Mahomes rolled to the sideline on third down as the time approached 10 seconds.
He was well out of bounds and well short of a field goal, but a late hit by Bengals defender Joseph Ossai resulted in 15 additional yards for the Chiefs.
