The Steelers knocked the Chiefs out of the playoffs, not with touchdowns, but with six field goals. Steelers kicker Chris Boswell kicked the most field goals of all-time in a single postseason game. The Steelers didn’t make it into the endzone once this game.
This game was surprisingly exciting mostly because it was so close and very bizarre. While the Steelers were busy kicking their way to victory, the Chiefs scored two touchdowns and a 2-point conversion to make the score 18-16. The Chiefs then went for another 2-point conversion that would have tied the game; however, it was negated by a penalty and the Steelers killed the clock and held on for the win. This was the first time in NFL history that a team has scored two more touchdowns than their opponent and lost the game.
Kansas City’s playoff drought continues and the Steelers head to Foxborough to face the Patriots in the AFC Championship. Go Steelers!
