PSR Logo
The ‪Steelers‬ turned the ball over three times and allowed 377 total yards in a 23-13 loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City on Sunday.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw for 251 yards and a touchdown, running back Charcandrick West had 110 yards rushing and his first career touchdown, and receiver Chris Conley added his first NFL touchdown reception, a fourth quarter score that sealed the win for Kansas City.

The Chief’s defense shut down the Steelers offense for the most part, especially third string quarterback Landry Jones. The Steelers QB threw for 209 yards in his first career start, but also made mistakes of two interceptions and a fumble.

LeVeon Bell ran for 121 yards for the Steelers and Antonio Brown had six catches for 124 yards. Martavis Bryant caught his 11th touchdown pass in 12 career games.

Kansas City kicker Cairo Santos made three field goals, and rookie Chris Boswell added a pair for the Steelers.

Kansas City built a 9-3 lead in the first half, but could not convert a touchdown despite three trips inside the Steelers red zone. The Chiefs took advantage of a second half interception by Eric Berry by driving 47 yards down the field for a touchdown to stretch their lead to16-3.

Pittsburgh came back with a 41 yard completion from Jones to Brown that set up their first touchdown, the scoring strike to Bryant. Right after, the Chiefs had to punt which set up the Steelers for another field goal to make it 16-13.

The Chiefs sealed the game when Alex Smith drove the offense down the field and found Conley in the end zone for the decisive score.
