KEY PLAYER: LE’VEON BELL

Bell has destroyed the Chiefs’ run defense in the past few games. Sunday was no different as he finished with 179 yards on 32 carries plus a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 12 yards. Bell showed his patience to get though the holes created for him and used his allusiveness to repeatedly shake off Chiefs defenders. Kansas City just couldn’t find a solution to slow-down Bell.

GAME RECAP AND ANALYSIS

Kansas City is unbeaten no more thanks to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chiefs did have some hopes of winning the game near the end, but the Steelers’ defense would prove to be a key difference in Sunday’s contest. The ‘Killer Bees’ also made a huge impact on the game with a huge play coming from them in the 4th quarter.

The game started rough for the Chiefs as Pittsburgh was able to force the safety for the game’s first score. Kansas City was able to add a field goal after the turnover on the punt following the safety. But from then, on to the 4th quarter, the Steelers ran the table.

Ben Roethlisberger had a much better outing this week. He finished the game going 17 of 25 for 252 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Roethlisberger was efficient and lead the Steelers on time consuming drive which ate up 36:39 minutes in the game. But it was his leading receiver and running back that proved to be too much.

Le’Veon Bell accounted for 191 yards of the total offense for Pittsburgh. But receiver Antonio Brown also stung the Chiefs for 8 receptions for 155 yards. Both players had a touchdown to help take down the Chiefs.

Kansas City’s high-powered offense just couldn’t find its groove until late in the game. The Steelers were excellent on defense and held the Chiefs to just 3 points in the first three quarters. But Alex Smith would come in hot in the 4th, but fall short. He finished the game 19 of 34 for 246 yards and one touchdown.

Rookie phenom Kareem Hunt struggled in this game, although he did finish the game with 110 yards of Kansas City’s 251 total. Surprisingly, Hunt only ran the ball 9 times.

The Chiefs had an opportunity late, but linebacker James Harrison sacked Smith late to make it a fourth and long. Smith couldn’t convert the long pass on the next play.

The Steelers will face off next week against divisional opponent the Cincinnati Bengals. Meanwhile, the Chiefs will have a short week and square off against divisional rival the Oakland Raiders.
