The Chiefs played their best game of the season Monday night. On the road, in a hostile environment, they did something they haven’t done all season.
They played with a lead.
Unfortunately, despite a ten-point lead, the Chiefs ultimately did what they seem to do best, which is find a way to lose. Late game turnovers and penalties led to a 16-13 overtime loss to the Steelers. Not helping matters was the third quarter penalty for a group celebration in the endzone.
For a touchdown that didn’t count.
Coach Romeo Crennel was pleased with the overall effort. “These guys played their hearts out”, said Crennel. “If the guys keep playing that way, we’ll get this turned.”
The Chiefs will need to continue to play the way they did at Pittsburgh last night if the head coach wants to keep his job. At 1-8, some Chiefs fans are already wondering who will be the next coach, and who they will draft with the #1 overall pick in next April’s NFL Draft.
