Refocused, NFL Week 2: Kansas City Chiefs 42, Pittsburgh Steelers 37

Kansas City Chiefs 42, Pittsburgh Steelers 37 Analyst Takeaways Ben Roethlisberger put up a monster stat line for the second week in a row, this time in a losing effort.
What gets lost in the traditional stats are the sheer number of bad throws he’s made, as his teammates have really helped him after the catch.
Wide receiver Antonio Brown was limited, despite getting targeted an absurd 18 times, which resulted in just 67 yards.
The Steelers struggled mightily in coverage.
Mike Hilton and Artie Burns both missed a handful of tackles, and there were plenty more missed by others.
Outside of a couple miscues like stepping up too far in the pocket and tripping over his center causing a sack, and dropping a snap under center, it was an excellent outing for quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
He took care of the ball and picked apart the Steelers’ coverage throughout the game.

When a defense allows 442 yards through the air and 37 points, it’s usually not going to result in many good defensive performances.
If there was a small positive on the Chiefs defense it was the play of edge defender Dee Ford, as he was able to generate a couple of hits and several hurries on quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
