On the Steelers next drive, it was Le’Veon Bell who ran the ball right down the Chiefs’ throats. They converted with big runs by Bell, and when Bell carried them on his back into the red-zone, it was more Bell as he punched the ball into the endzone for a touchdown. Giving the Steelers a 9-3 lead after the Chris Boswell point-after.
After forcing a Kansas City three-and-out, the Steelers were driving again, but on 3rd down Antonio Brown stopped his route, unbeknownst to Roethlisberger, and the pass sailed into Marcus Peters’ hands for the interception.
The Chiefs’ offense wasn’t able to do anything with the turnover, and hadn’t gained a first down with 9-minutes left in the first half. After being pinned inside their own one-yard line, the Steelers marched down the field, 99-yards, but were stoned when it mattered most, settling for a Boswell chip shot to extend the lead 12-3.
That was the final score heading into halftime, and the Chiefs will get the ball to start the 2nd half.
