Steelers Earn Playoff Berth

By Matt Hall, Student Reporter

Here is the breakdown of the Steelers game on Sunday vs. the Chiefs.

In the first quarter with13:24 left Ben Roethlisberger threw a 40 yard pass to Martavis Bryant.  It was an awesome play!  A little later Shaun Suisham kicked a field goal for Pittsburgh.  With 2:06 left Cairo Santos kicked a field goal for KC.  That drive was 7:09 for KC.  At the end of the first the score was tied 3-3.

In the 2nd quarter with 14:54 left there was offsetting penalties.  KC was called for roughing on the play and Pittsburgh was called for a late hit.  Later KC faked a field goal and instead got a 1st down.  Santos then kicked another field goal.  Ben passed to Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers scored a touchdown with 4:18 left in the 2nd quarter.  At the half the score was 10 (Pittsburgh) to 6 (KC). 

In the 3rd quarter with 6:26 left KC fumbled the ball and the Steelers scored a touchdown.  Ben threw the ball to Antonio Brown.  Ben’s knee got clipped, but he was OK.  At the end of the 3rd it was 17-6 Pittsburgh. 

In the 4th quarter with 10:19 left Santos got another field goal and again with 1:37 left.  The Steelers won 20-12 though.

The Steelers have guaranteed their spot in the post season.  The last time they made the playoffs was in 2011.  The Steelers will play the final game of the season Sunday against the Bengals.  See you there!
