The Steelers tied the game on a close-call touchdown catch by Mike Wallace. After missing the initial catch in the end zone, Wallace pinned the ball between his knees, then secured the ball just before sliding out of bounds.
To get on the board earlier in the quarter, the Steelers ended an 11-play drive that lasted over five minutes with a 35-yard field goal from Shaun Suisham.
The Chiefs started the second quarter at Pittsburgh's 3-yard line, but failed to score a touchdown. After Jamaal Charles was stopped on third down, Ryan Succop put through a 22-yard field goal for the 10-0 lead. After that score, Kansas City's offense slowed down considerably, totaling just 33 yards in the frame.
Charles leads all rushers with 65 yards on 14 carries, including a 12-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Matt Cassel is 5-9 with 78 passing yards.
