Kansas City would end another drive for Pittsburgh, this time with an interception off a big throw from Ben Roethlisberger. The Chiefs were able to capitalize on this turnover with a 22-yard field goal, putting them up 10-9.

ITS GOOD. @Chiefs knock one in from 22 yards out. Score now 10-9 in favor of KC. #KCvsPIT #Madden17 pic.twitter.com/gXfWt1PXnf

Kansas City started feeling the pressure and decided to start playing more aggressive. They went 75 yards on their next drive, and Smith was able to punch it into the endzone at the five. Pittsburgh still led 22-20.

Pittsburgh would score on their next drive, but only with a field goal. This kept Kansas City’s hopes alive, but they would do nothing with the momentum. Smith would miss a touchdown pass in the red zone on fourth down.

Fortunately for the Chiefs, they would hold Pittsburgh to a punt, but unfortunately, they would squander yet another drive, missing a fourth down pass in the red zone again.

Pittsburgh would take advantage of this by scoring another touchdown. This time, it was a pass to tight end LaDarius Green. This made it 32-20 in favor of Pittsburgh.

Touchdown again! LaDarius Green scores a touchdown, making it 32-20, @steelers. #KCvsPIT. #Madden17 pic.twitter.com/iDwfslD2pG
