Final: Chiefs 26, Steelers 20
The Chiefs played their starters for the entire first half, and the results were middling at best. The defense had trouble in coverage, especially on play action. Three times safety Eric Berry was caught "peeking" and allowed receivers to get vertical on him. The pass rush was effective off the edge, but nullified up the middle, and the corners
The offense was mostly a disjointed mess, with Alex Smith zeroing in on wide receiver Donnie Avery, and the Chiefs not opting to run the ball hardly at all. Quarterback Chase Daniel was the team's leading rusher with 45 yards, and Alex Smith finished second with 38 yards. The offense struggled to convert on third down, converting only 5 of 16 chances, and converting one fourth down in three attempts.
The lone bright spot for the Chiefs was again the Special Teams unit, which blocked a kick for the second straight week, and had a return touchdown, also for the second straight week, when Knile Davis went 109 yards on a kickoff.
