Kansas City Chiefs 42, Pittsburgh Steelers 37
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. He’ll need to hone it in with better efficiency to put the Steelers in the win column next weekend.
Wide receiver Antonio Brown was limited, despite getting targeted an absurd 18 times, which resulted in just 67 yards. Brown was hurt by Roethlisberger’s inaccuracies and he had to fight for every yard he gained.
