Chiefs take early lead in Pittsburgh

For the first time all season, we can say this: There’s a Chiefs game on, and Kansas City is leading.

The Chiefs took their first lead of the season in the first quarter on Monday night in Pittsburgh, as Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles finished off a solid offensive drive with an excellent 12-yard touchdown run.

This year’s Chiefs were the first team since the 1929 Buffalo Bisons to go through eight games of the season without ever having a lead while the game was going on, although the Chiefs did win an overtime game in which they scored on the last play.

On a rainy night in Pittsburgh, the Chiefs finally got off to a good start. We’ll see if they can keep it going, or if their surprising start will be followed up by a familiar finish.

UPDATE 9:30 p.m. ET: A trade of field goals early in the second quarter made the Chiefs’ first lead of the season 10-3.

    The Steelers ability to not only play down to, but worse than their competition is nothing short of astounding. The raiders game was what it was, the Titans game was laughable, but the chiefs!? I realize that it is still early in the game, but they’re losing by 10 points to the frickin CHIEFS

    Steelers surrender and give the chiefs their first lead of the season. Hah! Steelers are frauds, pathetic showing. You must be proud Pittsburgh.

    Cursing an official?

    You know what’s sad is that was a cause for celebration even if the game’s not over but the season pretty much is. (smh in disgust.)

    Ref who can’t handle grown men cursing?? Maybe he’s in the wrong profession, it’s not like he went off on the ref and got in his face.

    The Chiefs have like 17 guys who would make solid kick or punt returners but where are the football players ?

    Did Todd Haley forget that the Steelers have been awesome running the ball the last 4 weeks?

  15. dannythebisforbeast says: Nov 12, 2012 10:29 PM

    Worse than the ’29 Bisons. That’s bad…that team was terrible

  16. buckeye044 says: Nov 12, 2012 10:40 PM

    Tomlin is an awful game coach

  17. nelly837 says: Nov 12, 2012 11:13 PM

    Matt Cassel is the worst QB in the NFL, Pioli is an idiot along with RAC. Christ can KC actually throw a ball downfield more than 5 yards?

  18. steelcityfinest13 says: Nov 12, 2012 11:52 PM

    Its over…move on…much respect to the chiefs…more respect than the ravens will ever get!

  19. youhavenoclue says: Nov 12, 2012 11:53 PM

    lol ravens fans commenting.. apparently u forgot about ur 30 point dismantling a few weeks ago.. nobody else did.

  20. jbaxt says: Nov 13, 2012 12:00 AM

    Chiefs could be decent with just an average QB. Cassel is horrible. Granted they played against Byron for a half but ben didn’t do much either.

    This was the only exciting thing about the 3 + hour football game.
    The rest was a snooze fest.
    And it was a nice nap.

    The current chiefs team is a damn disgrace to the once proud franchise it once was.Pathetic what they’ve become.A total,housecleaning is needed there.
