The Steelers move onto the AFC Conference Championship game, where they’ll face the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium this upcoming Sunday night. The winner of this game will face either the Atlanta Falcons or the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl 51 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
This was Pittsburgh’s first Divisional Round win since Jan. 15, 2011 when they defeated the Baltimore Ravens 31-24.
The Chiefs have lost five straight Divisional Round games. They have not won in this round since Jan. 16, 1994 when they defeated the Houston Oilers 28-20.
Pittsburgh had 395 yards. Roethlisberger, Steelers quarterback, had 224 passing yards and one rushing yard.
Bell had a 170 rushing yards and Brown had a 108 receiving yards.
Kansas City had 233 yards. Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith had a 172 passing yards and nine rushing yards.
Smith accounted for a touchdown, as he hit Albert Wilson for a five-yard touchdown reception.
Spencer Ware had 35 rushing yards and one receiving yard. Ware also scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown.
Following Ware’s touchdown, the Chiefs went for a two-point conversion. However, on the initial attempt, it was converted, but Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher held James Harrison and was called for a penalty.
In their second attempt, Smith’s pass went incomplete. That basically sealed the Steelers win, because on their next possession, they converted a first down and ran out the clock.
