Steelers ready to face Chiefs on the road again

  • 5 questions with Steelers Wire about Sunday's game vs. Chiefs

The Chiefs' first turnover since their first offensive play of the season came in the first half, when backup center Zach Fulton snapped the ball over Smith's head for a safety.

Still, Smith almost rallied the Chiefs in the second half, hitting De'Anthony Thomas down the sideline for a 57-yard fourth-quarter touchdown that got Kansas City within 12-10. The Steelers defense is giving up an average of 136.6 rushing yards per game, no better than 28th in the NFL.

The Steelers would also like to revisit their commitment to the running game.

A pair of miscues led to each team's first points.

Esure Group PLC (ESUR) Receives GBX 240.14 Consensus PT from Brokerages
After $0.49 actual EPS reported by Vectrus Inc for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts -16.33 % negative EPS growth. The Firm is engaged in the business of Retailing and associated activities (Retail) and Retail banking and insurance services.


After scoring on a 3-yard run, Bell began boxing the goalpost while teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster knelt and pretended to take pictures.

Now, with the situation quite different, and with the Chiefs utilizing a new-and-improved running game, the Steelers are ready to face the Kansas City team on the road again. Smith simply threw the ball up, and had no red shirts near where the ball landed. The Chiefs' defense eventually forced a punt, but Pittsburgh accomplished its goal by draining 5 minutes off the clock and getting out of the shadow of its own end zone. Ben Roethliberger's third-down pass went right through the hands of Chiefs cornerback Phillip Gaines.

The Chiefs kept battling, however, mounting another drive that ended in a field goal to cut the deficit to 19-13. The Chiefs had been the NFL's last remaining undefeated team, meaning the 1972 Dolphins were surely celebrating the Steelers victory. They have little time to lick their wounds, however, as they head to Oakland, 2-4, for a showdown on Thursday night.
