Chiefs 23, Steelers 13

This time Chiefs convert lead to win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs had been in the same position twice this season, trying to hold a dwindling fourth-quarter lead inside Arrowhead Stadium.

This time, they did it.

Alex Smith calmly led Kansas City downfield in the closing minutes, hitting Chris Conley with a short touchdown toss, as the Chiefs ended a five-game skid.

"Not much different than the other two games, to be honest," Smith said of the losses to Denver and Chicago. "(We) just made plays down the stretch. That was the bottom line."

"This is something we've been working toward," said Eric Berry, whose first interception since being diagnosed with cancer in December led to the Chiefs' first touchdown.

Pittsburgh's Landry Jones made his first NFL start in place of the injured Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Vick. Jones threw for 209 yards and a touchdown, but was picked off twice and lost a fumble.
