Steelers Vs. Chiefs 2011: KC Leads 3-0 Early

The Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers are playing it close in a somewhat uneventful first quarter of NFL football. The Chiefs lead, 3-0. 

So far, the story of the game for Kansas City is their defense. The Chiefs' D has put lots of pressure on Ben Roethlisberger and even forced a fumble. 

Here are some game notes on the first quarter:

  • The Kansas City Chiefs struck first with a Ryan Succop field goal after a quiet drive, punctuated with a great catch and run by Dwayne Bowe. 
  • The Chiefs dodged a bullet when a pass interference penalty in the end zone by Brandon Carr was negated by a Steelers' holding penalty. Unfortunately, the Steelers immediately followed up with a 30+ yard passing play.
  • And the first quarter takes a huge turn for the Chiefs. A Pittsburgh fumble was recovered by KC in the end zone. With six minutes left in the first quarter, the Chiefs have the ball at the 20-yard line. 
  • About a minute and a half later, Tyler Palko fumbled a snap and the Steelers recovered. Opportunity squandered.

Can the Chiefs sustain this effort for three more quarters?
