Steelers Vs. Chiefs Halftime Score: Pittsburgh Winning Game, Turnover Battle

The Pittsburgh Steelers didn't look impressive early in their Sunday Night Football game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but they are leading Kansas City heading into halftime. Ben Roethlisberger wasn't able to guide his offense into the end zone despite solid field position on two separate occasions, ending the second quarter with a 13-7 lead.

Roethlisberger completed 14 of his 20 passes in the first half for 127 yards and a touchdown, but his most impressive play may have been the one shown below -- a risky run block that netted just a few extra yards for his offense.

The Chiefs certainly struggled on offense in the first half as Tyler Palko completed seven of his 11 passing attempts for 74 yards, but two of those incompletions ended up in the arms of the Steelers, creating solid field positions for Roethlisberger's offense. The defense somehow was able to hold the Pittsburgh offense to just 13 points, though, keeping the game within a touchdown heading into the second half.
