Steelers Vs. Chiefs Final Score: Dwayne Bowe Kills Chiefs Late Drive As Steelers Win 13-9

The Pittsburgh Steelers started the fourth quarter with the football and a 13- 6 lead over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Steelers punted the football after only three plays however, giving the ball back to the Chiefs. The Chiefs were able to move down the field with a 13-play 70 yard drive that ended in a questionable field goal by Ryan Succop. The Chiefs were down a touchdown, but decided to go for the field goal instead of attempting to get the first down, which still forced the Chiefs to have to score a touchdown if they wanted to win the game.

With the Steelers holding just a 13-9 lead late in the fourth quarter, they needed to move the football down the field to add some more points and put the game out of reach, but the Chiefs defense buckled down and forced a punt. It looked like the Chiefs were going to at least make it interesting late in the fourth quarter, with Palko driving the Chiefs down the field with just under a minute left. With 38 seconds left, however, Tyler Palko sailed a pass to wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who didn't even attempt to catch the pass while it was picked off by Keenan Lewis, sealing the victory for the Steelers.
