Romeo Crennel and his 1-7 Kansas City Chiefs who are now 1-8 not by choice gave the Pittsburgh Steelers one hell of a battle on Monday Night Football. The Chiefs knock Big Ben Roethlisberger out of the contest and nearly knocked out the backup Byron Leftwich too. Crennel’s defense was very physical in the game and were hitting with a mission to knock people out of the game. The Chiefs had their chances in the game to come away with a victory only to come away with their 8th loss of the season.
Just think if Peyton Hillis was the back the Chiefs thought they were getting when they took him away form the Cleveland Browns. If Hillis was able to run the ball and help his Chiefs control the pace of the game, the Chiefs could have very well won this game. Hillis ran the ball 10 times and only had 30 yards in the contest. Yes, the Chiefs lost their 8th game but they knocked out Ben Roehtlisberger and they could have just cost the Steelers a shot at the AFC North title this season.
For Crennel and his Chiefs the agony of another losing season continues. The Chiefs did what they could to disrupt the Steelers offense and they took the game into overtime before they took their 8th loss on the season. If the Chiefs can play the Cleveland Browns with the same intensity they played the Steelers with, it is possible the Chiefs can get another win this season. Only time will tell if the Chiefs will win again this season. They way their defense played last night they certainly deserved a win.
