SAN DIEGO -- With a blue-collar, workmanlike approach, the Cincinnati Bengals knocked the San Diego Chargers back to reality while protecting their two-game lead in the AFC North. Sami Khedira Jersey . The Bengals ran for 164 yards. They held Philip Rivers to just 252 yards passing. They forced three turnovers and preyed on a big breakdown in coverage. "Down and dirty," cornerback Adam Jones said after the Bengals beat the Chargers 17-10 on Sunday, holding San Diegos high-powered offence to a season-low in points and wearing down its defence. Andy Dalton threw a go-ahead, 21-yard touchdown pass to wide-open A.J. Green late in the third quarter that allowed the Bengals (8-4), who were coming off their bye, to keep a two-game lead over Baltimore. "Thats the main thing. Were not playing just to make the playoffs," Jones said. "Were playing for the bye. We played hard and physical on defence. If we keep playing hard and smart and were going to be a real, real good team." San Diego (5-7) lost the momentum it gained with a thrilling 41-38 comeback win at Kansas City a week earlier. The Chargers slim playoff hopes dwindled after their fourth loss in five games. "You score 10 points, you are going to lose most of the time," said Rivers, who completed 23 of 37 passes for 252 yards. "Thats a good defence. We just werent consistent enough." With the score tied at 7, the Bengals got the ball after Dre Kirkpatrick ripped the ball away from tight end Antonio Gates after a reception at the Cincinnati 25, the Chargers third turnover. Ten plays later, Green split the defence for an easy touchdown, with safety Eric Weddle and cornerback Marcus Gilchrist only able to watch. "Obviously they jacked the coverage up a little bit and missed assignments in the middle and it worked out well for us," said Dalton, who added that the Bengals power running game helped set up that play. Dalton joined Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks to start their careers with three straight 3,000-yard seasons. Dalton was 14 of 23 for 190 yards, giving him 3,144 for the season. "It was just a seam right up the middle, man," said Green, who wasnt slowed by a hip pointer sustained during the Bengals first drive. "I guess the two linebackers and the safety went with Jermaine (Gresham) and I just came wide open." On the Bengals next drive, Andrew Hawkins caught a short pass from Dalton on third-and-2 from the Bengals 18 and raced 50 yards to the San Diego 32, where he was pushed out of bounds. The Bengals settled for Mike Nugents 46-yard field goal for a 17-7 lead. The Bengals appeared to be driving for a score that would have put away the game, but BenJarvus Green-Ellis fumbled when he was hit by Gilchrist. Weddle recovered and returned it 27 yards to the San Diego 43. The drive stalled and Nick Novak kicked a 48-yard field goal to pull to 17-10 with 4:43 left. A personal foul against Johnnie Troutman after the field goal forced the Chargers to kick off from their 20 and Brandon Tate returned it 24 yards to the Bengals 34 and Cincinnati ran out the clock. Green-Ellis gained 92 yards on 20 carries. Giovani Bernard had 57 yards on 14 carries. San Diego held the Bengals to 104 yards in the first half and then gave up 250 in the second half. Rookie coach Mike McCoy said his defence "fell apart." Cincinnatis offensive line manhandled the Chargers on the Bengals second drive, which ended with BenJarvus Green-Ellis scoring on a 4-yard run. The Chargers responded with a long drive capped when second-year tight end Ladarius Green split linebackers Rey Maualuga and Vontaze Burfict and was wide open for a 30-yard touchdown reception to tie the game at 7. Mostly, though, the Chargers struggled. "We crossed the 50 I dont know how many times but we didnt finish drives," Rivers said. "It is just not the turnovers; those we know. But there are other drives where we just didnt finish and ended up punting there right around midfield and that is critical. "This is a good team," Rivers said. "Let an opportunity pass us by? Yes. It wasnt like we had it in our grasp and they came in here and stole it from us. We knew we were going to have to play well." Said Burfict: "Just when theyd get to the 40-yard line, we had to stop them. Thats what were good at. They cross the 50 and everybody stepped up to make plays." NOTES: Chargers rookie Keenan Allen had eight catches for 106 yards, the fifth 100-yard game for the third-round draft pick from Cal. ... Chargers CB Derek Cox was benched in favour of Richard Marshall. Cox had been benched in three of the four previous games. ... Bengals LG Clint Boling hurt his right knee late in the first quarter. Manuel Neuer Germany Jersey .25 million option on reliever Jose Veras. Mario Gotze Jersey . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars. . LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes were embarrassed the previous time they played Los Angeles. Their last game wasnt a whole lot better, even if it was a victory. Bouncing back against the Kings and getting back to their defensive mindset should make them feel much better. Mike Smith stopped 41 shots, Kyle Chipchura had a goal and an assist, and the Coyotes rebounded from an ugly loss to Los Angeles by beating the Kings 3-1 Tuesday night. "We needed to play well, not just because it was a big division game and they beat us last week, but we needed to get our game in order," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "We still gave up 40 shots, but we competed the way we need to be successful." Smith had a miserable game in California last Thursday, when he was pulled after allowing four goals on 15 shots in the first period of the Kings 7-4 win. Both he and the Coyotes got off to a much better start in the rematch. Phoenix was sharp early in its own zone and Smith was superb throughout, making numerous tough saves before Jarret Stoll beat him on a power play late in the third period. The Coyotes broke open a tight game in the final 2 minutes of the second period on goals by Derek Morris and Shane Doan. Chipchura, who completed the Gordie Howe hat trick with a fight in the second period, scored his goal in the third, and Andy Miele had two assists for his first NHL points to help Phoenix improve to 5-0-1 at home. "We talked about having a better start," Smith said. "Our start in LA the other day wasnt as close to being where it needed to against a good hockey team. I thought we did a good job tonight from the drop of the puck to respond to a tough loss in their building last time." The Kings had won seven of their previous nine games and were sharp early, creating good chances while Ben Scrivens matched Smith nearly save for save. The game fell apart for them late in the second period, when the Coyotes scored two goals against Scrivens on deflections and Smith kept making saves. Scrivens stopped 30 shots. "They hadnt lost at home, so you knew you were going to need to make some saves in the first period and both goalies did," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "As the game went on, their goalie was on." The Coyotes were trying to find a way to clean things up in their own end after a pair of wiide-open games that featured 20 combined goals. Andre Schurrle Germany Jersey. The latest was against Edmonton on Saturday, when Phoenix took a two-goal lead, lost it when the Oilers scored three straight and won 5-4 with a pair of third-period goals. The one before that was the game in Los Angeles, where the Kings scored four goals in the first period, Phoenix rallied to tie it with four straight goals in 13 minutes and the Kings pulled away by scoring the final three, the last into an empty net to complete Dwight Kings hat trick. The rematch was more like these division rivals are used to playing, marked by solid defence, some big hits, along with plenty of testiness and trash talking. The scoreless first period had plenty of action, featuring 20 minutes of penalties and five players in the box at one point. The tension boiled over early in the second, when LAs Daniel Carcillo and Chipchura dropped the gloves for a fight near mid-ice. Both teams traded good scoring chances in the period and both goalies were superb, turning away a combined 23 shots. The Coyotes called a timeout after a flurry by the Kings late in the period and responded with two goals in the final 1:41. Morris got the first on a shot from the point that caromed off Kings defenceman Robyn Regehrs skate and teammate Drew Doughtys leg. Doan followed with his 100th career power-play goal at 5.9 seconds, redirecting a shot by Oliver Ekman-Larsson from the point. "It was tough, a couple tough bounces out there," Scrivens said. "But thats how you score goals in this league: Throw pucks to the net, get guys in front, get a fortuitous bounce. Weve just got to take what we can from it and move on." Chipchura put it all but out of reach in third period, when a cross by David Moss went off his skate past Scrivens. Smith gave up the power-play goal late in the game, but all that did was spoil the shutout, not the overall performance. NOTES: Martin Hanzal, Phoenixs second-leading scorer, served the first of a two-game suspension for charging Edmontons Jeff Petry on Sunday. Forwards Jeff Halpern and Lauri Korpikoski, along with defenceman Rostislav Klesla, also were out with injuries. ... The Kings scored one goal or fewer for the third time in 13 games this season. ... Miele, called up before the game, had assists on the goals by Morris and Chipchura.
