The KC Chiefs have been eliminated from the playoffs after losing an 18-16 game to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. It was a disappointing loss and one that will take awhile for Chiefs Kingdom to get over.
You’ll have to excuse me if I sound overly sad in this post, but that loss will take me awhile to process. Time and time again we saw this Chiefs team rally and pull out some crazy victory, but they couldn’t do that in the biggest game at Arrowhead in 20 some years.
This was an incredibly frustrating game for the Kansas City Chiefs, who despite holding the Steelers to 18 points, couldn’t do much on offense until it was too late. They had the opportunity to tie things up with less than four minutes left to go in the game, but Eric Fisher was called for holding and that wiped out the two-point conversion.
I’m just so unbelievably sad by Sunday night’s results. I really thought this would be the year that the KC Chiefs would make it to the AFC Championship Game, but they blew it in a very winnable game. That’s what’s so annoying about this whole thing. They had several chances to win and couldn’t finish the task.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the final Good, Bad, Ugly of the 2016 Chiefs season. I’ll save you some time… There isn’t much good.
Good: First Offensive Drive
After holding the Steelers offense to a field goal on their first possession, the Kansas City Chiefs shut up all of the haters on their first offensive drive. What started with a seven-yard run by Spencer Ware ended with Alex Smith throwing a touchdown to Albert Wilson.
The Chiefs were moving the football incredibly well on their first possession and Chiefs fans had to be feeling pretty confident after Smith threw that strike to Wilson for six.
After that possession, however, there wasn’t much else going well for the Chiefs offense. Not a good game to go cold in…
