Steelers Vs. Chiefs Score Update: Chiefs Hold Early 3-0 Lead

The Pittsburgh Steelers let the Chiefs move the football a bit on their opening drive, getting down to the Steelers 23-yard line before the drive stalled out. Kicker Ryan Succop drilled the 41-yard field goal to take the early lead over the Steelers.

On the ensuing drive, the Pittsburgh Steelers marched right down the football field with ease. The Steelers marched all the way down to the 8-yard line, but running back Mewelde Moore coughed up the football and the Chiefs recovered the fumble. Four plays later however, the Chiefs coughed up the football and gave it right back to the Steelers when quarterback Tyler Palko fumbled the ball away.

The Steelers drive after the turnover went backwards after the Steelers converted a fourth and short however, thanks to a holding call and a sack on third down. The very next play, however, Tyler Palko was picked off by Ike Taylor. It was Taylor's first interception in the last 22 games, his last one coming on Halloween against the New Orleans Saints.
