PITTSBURGH STEELERS SPOIL KANSAS CITY CHIEFS WIN STREAK WITH 19-13 VICTORY AMID ONGOING ANTHEM PROTEST!!!
The Pittsburgh Steelers, who were united in standing for the The Star Spangled Banner, provided a reality check to hopeful Kansas City fanboys as Marcus Peters & Ukeme Eliqwe continued their dissent.
To be fair, it was a pretty good game, fast paced and a defensive battle. QB Alex Smith looked impressive right up until a disappointing last drive. Despite his social justice crusade, Marcus Peters earned an interception that kept the game close.
Still, the key to ongoing Steelers success over the Chiefs has always been aggressive play, constant pressure on the QB and effective passing from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Check the round-up.
