Chiefs vs. Steelers preseason: A brief history between KC and PIT

Jamie Squire

The Chiefs second-to-last playoff victory came against Pittsburgh. Read on for more facts about the Chiefs and Steelers history.

In their all-time third preseason game, the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers get together for a good ol' fashioned brawl at Heinz Field on Saturday night.

The two teams have some intertwined history, mostly with coaches. Of course, Pittsburgh's current offensive coordinator is Todd Haley, the former Kansas City head coach who led the Chiefs to a 2010 AFC West title. Before that, Bill Cowher left Kansas City to jump from being a defensive coordinator to Chuck Noll's successor, ultimately winning a Super Bowl and appearing in another.

Chiefs-Steelers all-time preseason record: 1-1

The Steelers have owned the Chiefs all-time, winning 19 of 29 games in the regular season. Saturday's game actually marks the first time Kansas City has ever played at Pittsburgh in a preseason game. The all-time preseason series is tie at 1 with both games at Arrowhead.

Easily, the best moment in this rivalry came in 1993, when Joe Montana and the boys beat Pittsburgh at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Wild Card game, 27-24. It's the last time the Chiefs won a home playoff game.

Another game of note took place in 1986, when Kansas City won at Three Rivers Stadium to make the postseason for the first time since 1971.

There haven't been too many players of note to play for both franchises, save the immortal Len Dawson and a brief Chiefs appearance for Mike Webster.
