    Thursday’s Bengals-Chiefs exhibition featured four return touchdowns, three of which were scored by Kansas City in a 41-39 victory at Arrowhead Stadium.

    The first of the Chiefs’ return scores was tallied by rookie kick returner De’Anthony Thomas, who sprinted away for an 80-yard first quarter touchdown.

    On the play, Thomas caught the punt on the far side of the field, shaking off a collision with Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick in the process. From there, Thomas reversed field to his right, where he had plenty of space. Once he found a lane and got through, the Chiefs’ fourth-round pick was gone.

    An Oregon product, Thomas is getting a shot to replace the departed Dexter McCluster on punts. He only helped his cause Thursday night.
