Post-game scuffle between Chiefs and Steelers caps off a ridiculous game

New, comments

The Steelers and Chiefs went head-to-head in the Divisional round of the AFC Playoffs, and the post-game scuffle capped off a very strange game.

NFL: AFC Divisional-Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

After the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 18-16 in the Divisional round of the AFC Playoffs, a lot happened. The holding call on Eric Fisher, the Travis Kelce post-game tirade and now the Antonio Brown Facebook Live video in the visitors’ locker room at Arrowhead Stadium.

What might have gone rather unnoticed by most fans was the post-game scuffle between Antonio Brown and Terrance Mitchell. Although what started the war of words isn’t clear, what transpired certainly caught the attention of a lot of people.

While Marcus Peters appears to be trying to congratulate Brown on a good game, whatever is being said between Mitchell and Brown causes Joey Porter, Cameron Heyward, Kevin Colbert and even Mike Tomlin to step in and try to restore peace.

Take a look at the video, courtesy of ESPN’s Josina Anderson:

This post-game altercation capped off a weird and unorthodox game. It was the first time in NFL history that a team has scored two more touchdowns than their opponent, and lost the game. It also keeps Kansas City’s drought of home playoff wins going, as they haven’t won since Joe Montana beat the Steelers back in 1993.

Either way, despite seeing Porter involved in the fracas, reminding fans of the 2015 Wild Card game in Cincinnati, the Steelers now have bigger fish to fry. The New England Patriots await next Sunday for the AFC Championship game matchup in Foxborough.
