The Steelers suffered a morale-shattering loss against the Titans before they took on the Chiefs on Monday. Needless to say, they were low on confidence and were desperately looking to register a win. However, their horror show continued and the Chiefs absolutely destroyed them.
While it was evident that breaking the Chiefs’ 7-game winning streak is never going to be easy, fans were expecting at least a hard-fought encounter. However, much to their disappointment, the Chiefs were in no mood to give any breathing space to their opponents.
“Flexing down 23-0”: Twitteratis reprimand the Steelers for horror show against the Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes was simply unstoppable. With 258 yards and 3 touchdowns, he was able to put the Steelers’ defense under constant pressure and the scoreline suggests that they fell flat under pressure. Right from the word go, the Chiefs were on top.
With just about two minutes left in the second quarter, the Chiefs were already up 23-0. Finally, in the third quarter, the Steelers succeeded in scoring a few points but it was too little too late by then. As expected, Twitter went wild after the game concluded.
The Steelers were without a couple of star players when they came in to play against the Chiefs. However, such a performance is just not acceptable at all. The Steelers would look to redeem themselves when they’ll take on the Browns in their next game.
