Alex Smith completed 17-of-24 passes for one TD. He played the first half and led two scoring drives in the final two drives of the first half, including a 72-yard drive in just one minute. He went 6-of-7 in that drive.
Dwayne Bowe caught six balls for 73 yards and Donnie Avery caught six for 54 yards. Receivers are back.
Ben Roethlisberger looked sharp against the Chiefs defense completing 13-of-19 passes for 166 yards.
Knile Davis had a 109-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Chase Daniel hit Rico Richardson for the 15-yard game winning TD.
Neither Tyler Bray nor Ricky Stanzi played.
With Dexter McCluster and Quintin Demps out of the game, Devon Wylie gets the first shot at kick returner. And promptly fumbles it. However, replays showed his elbow was down before the Steeler knocked it out, reversing the initial fumble ruling.
Opening fumble call has been reversed. Wylie's elbow clearly hit the ground THEN ball came out. Chiefs keep the ball.— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 24, 2013
1st offensive drive
We have a reception by a wide receiver: Alex Smith found Donnie Avery for a first down on the second play from scrimmage. On the next play, Smith found Avery for nine yards. Jamaal picked up the first down with an 11-yard run on the following play.
Alert: Dwayne Bowe's first catch of the preseason. A quick in for six yards.
3rd-and-7: Alex Smith sacked. He was in shotgun and the receivers were well-covered. The pocket collapsed on him.
1st defensive drive
On the first drive last week the Chiefs allowed a 52-yard run by Frank Gore. This week it was a 49-yard bomb from Ben Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown on the first drive.
The drive ends in a field goal. Steelers lead, 3-0.
2nd offensive drive
Chiefs lined up in the pistol. Alex had a back to his right and a back behind him.
Donnie Avery with his third reception
Chances of Andy Reid trolling us with passes to WRs: Moderate— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
Chiefs go for it on fourth down: Failed. Pittsburgh's defense holds on. Chiefs give it up on their own 22-yard line.
2nd defensive drive
Two straight incompletions to start the drive, which starts on Chiefs own 22-yard line.
3rd-and-10: Classic Big Ben to keep the play alive for an 11-yard gain.
Woooooow! DJ got to Big Ben fast. That was Clowney-style, dang— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
3rd offensive drive
An incomplete pass (overthrown by Alex) and a short run by Jamaal Charles bring up a quick third down.
3rd-and-10: Three-yard pass to Anthony Fasano goes out of bounds. Chiefs punt it back.
Turns out, the 'ol throw a 3-yard pass on 3rd-and-10 is frustrating even if Cassel isn't your QB— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
3rd defensive drive
Big Ben completes a 25-yard pass ... but a chop block brings it back 15 yards. Chiefs got lucky.
Chiefs force the punt.
4th offensive drive
Alex finds D-Bowe for 30 yards. His second catch of the preseason. Alex was rolling to his right and found Bowe, who put a move on the defender and added some YAC.
Donnie Avery got open down the field on a deep curl but Alex's pass was just a bit too high. Incomplete.
3rd-and-15: Alex steps up in the pocket and finds Junior Hemingway for the first down. Hemingway bobbled the ball after hauling it in but held on. Chiefs were 0-for-3 on third downs before this.
Chiefs eventually have to punt it back.
4th defensive drive
Steelers starting from their own 20-yard line.
Big Ben having his way down the field against the Chiefs. So good— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
Brandon Flowers makes an outstanding play to knock the ball away from Emmanuel Sanders, who almost caught a beautiful pass from Ben.
Steelers FG attempt is blocked by Chiefs! Looks like Tysyn Hartman. Had INT in Week 1— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
5th offensive drive
Chiefs start at midfield. On the first play, Alex avoids the sack and takes off running for 38 yards. There was also a late hit from the Steelers, tacking onto the play.
Reid tells @KCChiefs_Rachel Alex's run pumped the team up. That 38-yard, Bono-esque gallop— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
As Trent says, Chiefs had first down inside 10. Jamaal touches it on all 3 plays. But Chiefs settle for FG. 10-3 PIT— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
5th defensive drive
There's that attacking D! Eric Berry and Tysyn Hartman combine for the sack.
Chiefs force the punt
6th offensive drive
Chiefs get it back on their own 28-yard line with 1:18. Two minute drill.
Alex Smith was drilled by Troy Polamalu -- roughing the passer for a hit to the head. He also completes the pass to D-Bowe for another first down.
Polamalu late high hit on Alex Smith sure to draw NFL fine.— Gerry Dulac (@gerrydulac) August 25, 2013
Chiefs inside the 10-yard line. Kill the clock with 21 seconds. Started on their own 28 at 1:18— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
Alex finds Junior Hemingway just past the goal line for the touchdown. 10-10 in Pittsburgh.
Alex completes 6-of-7 passes for 72 yards in one minute on the drive.
This was one of the best drives of the preseason, if not the best.

#Chiefs special teams are absolutely killing it. Touchdown Knile Davis— Chris Sembower (@ChrisSembower) August 25, 2013
Thing is, would Knile normally take it out from 9 yards deep? I say yes from now on— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2013
