Only Shayne Graham’s first-quarter field goal kept the Bengals (11-5) from being shut out for the first time since 2001. The Chiefs were unstoppable on offense and stifling on defense in Sunday’s 37-3 victory over the playoff-bound Cincinnati Bengals. But Pittsburgh’s 35-21 victory over Detroit kept the Chiefs (10-6) from reaching the AFC playoffs, and Vermeil’s decision to retire at the end of the season takes effect immediately. “I think they’ve demonstrated that they are a playoff-caliber football team,” Vermeil said. “We just didn’t get some things done that we had to get done at the time we needed to get them done.” KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs gave Dick Vermeil a near-perfect good-bye gift. They couldn’t give him what they really wanted, though, which was one more game as their head coach. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
