Pittsburgh Steals a Win From Kansas City

The Steelers and Chiefs was an entertaining matchup but in the end Pittsburgh prevailed. The Steelers got on the board first courtesy of a Chris Boswell field goal. Kansas City struck back with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to Albert Wilson. The Steelers chipped away at the deficit, eventually taking the lead by virtue of 3 more Chris Boswell field goals. The teams went into halftime with the Steelers up by the score of 12-7 The teams traded field goals in the 3rd quarter, making the score 15-10 heading into the 4th quarter. Both squads were evenly matched throughout the game with the Steelers having a marginal edge. Chris Boswell set an NFL playoff record by making his 5th field goal of the night, giving Pittsburgh a 18-10 lead with 9:49 left in the game. But the Chiefs would not go quietly into the night. Alex Smith marched his team down the field to score a touchdown with 2:43 left in the game. The 2-point conversion failed, leaving Kansas City trailing by two points. The Chiefs tried to stop Pittsburgh and get the ball back but Big Ben got the back-breaking first down which allowed the Steelers to run the clock out. The Chiefs played a solid game but just couldn’t do enough to get the W. They were only 2/9 on 3rd downs and gained a mere 227 yards to Pittsburgh’s 389. Big Ben Roethlisberger went 20/31 for 218 yards and Le’Veon Bell ran for 170 yards on 30 carries. However, kicker Chris Boswell had to be the MVP of the game as all 18 Steeler points were scored by his right leg. The Steelers travel to New England to take on Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in Foxborough next Sunday. The Pats took care of business against the Texans on Saturday night and will be brimming with confidence as they have homefield advantage. Oh, and it probably doesn’t hurt that they have the greatest quarterback of all time under center. Do you think the Patriots will make it to yet another Super Bowl or will the Steelers complete the upset?
