Steelers 10 vs. 36 Chiefs summary: stats, scores, and highlights | Week 16

The Kansas CIty Chiefs stay on top of the AFC after a demolishion of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Patrick Mahomes threw for 258 yard and three TDs in the win.

The Kansas City Chiefs are champions of the AFC West after crushing the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon in Arrowhead. Patrick Mahomes threw for 258 yards, and three touchdowns in the Chiefs 36-10 win to keep Kansas City in pole position to take home field advantage in the playoffs.

Chiefs make it 8 straight

The Chiefs move to 11-4 on the year, and keep a one game advantage on the Tennessee Titans in the AFC. The win was the eighth straight for the Chiefs who haven’t dropped a game since losing to the Titans back in late October.

Since the Titans loss the defense has tightened the screws and have been rock solid, holding opponents to under 13 points per game since then. The Chiefs defense was once again vacuum sealed holding the Steelers to a garbage time touchdown when they were already up by more than 30 points.

KC scores 14 points in 3 minutes to end 1st quarter

Kansas City running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire got the party started with a two yard touchdown run on the opening drive the Chiefs night. On the very next play from scrimmage Charvarius Ward intercepted Ben Rothlisberger setting up yet another first quarter scoring drive.

This time is was Patrick Mahomes finding Byron Pringle in the back of the endzone for the second Chiefs touchdown in a matter of three minutes. That would be enough to stun the Steelers into oblivion, and put it on cruise the rest of the way.

The lead was stretched to 23-0 right before the end of the first half when Mecole Hardman danced his way into the endzone for a nine yard touchdown reception.

Steelers first half struggles carry into second half

Pittsburgh had just 117 yards of total offense, and had committed more turnovers than they had points.

Not much changed in the second half as the Steelers started with a non contact fumble committed by Diontae Johnson. The play was a perfect summation of how Pittsburgh were playing up until that point.

Byron Pringle stretched the lead to 30-0 with a 16 yard catch and run to put the game to rest. The Chiefs would take their foot off the pedal for the rest of the way, but not before Mahomes finished with 258 yards to go along with his three TD passes.

The ten points conceded by the defense came when the game was dead and gone. Johnson was able to get into the endzone with just under three minutes to go in the game.

Playoff outlook

The win keeps the Chiefs in the top spot in the AFC, and they control their own destiny in the race for home field advantage.

The Steelers were in the last AFC Wild Card spot coming into the game after losses by Baltimore and Los Angeles. They are still in the hunt but the loss certainly didn’t do them any favors.
