The Pittsburgh Steelers has taken a lot of criticism through the first five games of the season. And it looks like they are taking all that frustration out on the Kansas City Chiefs offense. The Steelers lead 12-3 at halftime and the Pittsburgh defense has been smothering.

The Chiefs defense mustered a single first down and that didn’t come until the final drive of the half. On that same drive Steelers linebacker Vince Williams sacked Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith twice after blowing up the Kansas City running back. Smith finished the half with 23 yards passing and Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce has one target and zero catches.

Kansas City came into the game with the league’s best running back in Kareem Hunt. As of halftime he has seven yards on four carries. Defensive coordinator Keith Butler has come out with a new defensive attitude and a gameplan that has baffled the Chiefs.

Let’s see if the Steelers can come out in the second half and maintain this level of intensity.

The Steelers delivered a knockout blow to the last remaining undefeated NFL team, holding on for a 19-13 victory Sunday.

After losing two of the past three games, the Steelers smothered Kansas City’s offense in the first half and held their breath as the Chiefs mounted a comeback in the fourth quarter.

They raised their record to 4-2, alone in first place in the AFC North Division. Kansas City dropped to 5-1.

on third down,The Chiefs were poised on the Steelers’ 40 when James Harrison, sacked Alex Smith back to the 48 with 58 seconds to go.

Le’Veon Bell rushed for 179 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries.

Kansas City scored their first touchdown with 6:13 left in the game on a 57-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to De’Anthony Thomas.

That cut the Steelers’ lead to 12-10, but their offense responded in kind.

On third-and-two from their 49 on the next series, Ben Roethlisberger uncorked a medium-range pass toward the left sideline. Cornerback Phillip Gaines tipped the ball right into the hands of Antonio Brown at the 34. Brown then ran into the endzone to complete a 51-yard touchdown.

That put the Steelers back on top by two scores,Womens Bryan Witzmann Jersey, 19-10.

neither were the Chiefs through. Two deep passes on their next series gave them a first down at the Steelers’ 15,However,Womens Terrance Mitchell Jersey, but they could gain no more and rookie Harrison Butker kicked a 33-yard field goal.

The Steelers led 19-13 with 2:17 left, and that’s how it ended.

The third quarter was scoreless but the Chiefs had their biggest play of the game to put the ball at the Steelers 12 on a 37-yard pass from Alex Smith to Kareem Hunt plus a 12-yard penalty against Mike Mitchell for roughing Smith.

as the fourth quarter started,Womens Ramik Wilson Jersey,However, the Steelers’ defense held again. The Chiefs worked their way to a third down at the three. Hunt got a yard and then Sean Davis broke up a pass in the end zone on fourth down.

The Steelers used a stifling defense and mixed up the run and the pass on offense to take a 12-3 halftime lead.

They scored three different ways in the half — on a safety,Authentic Mitchell Schwartz Jersey, a Bell 3-yard run and Chris Boswell’s 24-yard field goal. Their defense held Kansas City to one first down in the first two quarters.

The Chiefs managed just 6 yards in total offense in the first half to 232 for the Steelers.

Unlike last week when they failed to run much on the NFL’s worst run defense, the Steelers came out pounding against the Chiefs.

Bell ran 17 times for 99 yards in the first half one week after he ran 15 times for 47 yards in the Steelers’ upset loss to Jacksonville at home. He ran eight times for 64 yards on a 75-yard drive that ended with him powering up the middle for a 3-yard touchdown on the first play of the second quarter.

That gave the Steelers a 9-3 lead and also gave Bell 71 yards rushing in one quarter and one play.

Bell was out of the game when Ben Roethlisberger’s pass for Antonio Brown was intercepted by cornerback Marcus Peters and returned 16 yards to the Steelers’ 48 on their next series.

The Steelers then mounted an impressive drive that ended. They moved 93 yards on 12 plays. They had a first down at the two. But Roethlisberger lined up in the shotgun from there on the next three plays. He threw incomplete,Womens Mitchell Schwartz Jersey, Bell lost four on a deep handoff and a third-down pass did not connect.

Chris Boswell kicked a 24-yard field goal to end that 12-play, 93 yard drive to boost the Steelers’ lead to 12-3.

The Chiefs led 3-2 at the end of the first quarter.

but on third-and-three, linebacker Dee Ford got around Alejandro Villanueva to sack Roethlisberger,A promising opening drive by the Steelers reached Kansas City’s 34, ending that drive.

But then they scored on Kansas City’s first drive when a high snap in the shotgun from the nine by backup center Zach Fulton sailed over quarterback Alex Smith’s head and through the end zone for a safety.

the free kick is like a kickoff ,That did not last long thanks to a gaffe on the next play by Brown. Dustin Colquit punted on the free kick from the 20 and Brown let it bounce. However,so it was a live ball and the Chiefs recovered at the Steelers’ 32.

The Steelers defense held, and Butker kicked a 46-yard field goal to put KC up 3-2.

The top three teams in this week’s power rankings remained the same with the undefeated Chiefs maintaining the top spot.

respectively,The Chiefs are the NFL’s only undefeated team and are followed by a trio of 4-1 clubs. The Packers and Eagles remain in the second and third spots, with the Panthers climbing five spots to No. 4.

The idle Broncos and Falcons, slide up as the Bills, both 3-1, Lions and Rams lost. Making the biggest jump this week were the Jaguars, moved up 12 spots into the top 10 after their defense led a 30-9 thrashing of the Steelers.

Omnisport’s Week 6 NFL power rankings:

center Mitch Morse in Week 2, outside linebacker Dee Ford a week later,Authentic Bryan Witzmann Jersey,1. Kansas City Chiefs (5-0): The Chiefs have yet to see Pro Bowl defensive end Tamba Hali on the field. They lost Pro Bowl safety Eric Reid in the season opener, guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif in Week 4 and wide receiver Chris Conley in Sunday’s win over the Texans. Yet they keep winning and are probably the NFL’s deepest team.

the Packers also have been able to withstand injuries and,Authentic Terrance Mitchell Jersey, after playing the Vikings and Saints in the next weeks,Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey,2. Green Bay Packers (4-1): Aaron Rodgers was once again magical at AT&T Stadium to beat the Cowboys. Like the Chiefs, will enter their bye week with the hope of getting healthy for the second half of the season.

3. Philadelphia Eagles (4-1): Carson Wentz had the best game of his short career against the Cardinals with four touchdown passes for the first time. Things won’t come easy Thursday against a Panthers defense ranked fifth against the pass.

4. Carolina Panthers (4-1): Cam Newton was nearly perfect Sunday in a 27-24 win over the Lions. Thursday’s showdown with the Eagles is shaping up to be a fun quarterback duel.

the Broncos should cruise past the winless Giants on Sunday.,Authentic Demetrius Harris Jersey,5. Denver Broncos (3-1): Coming out of their bye week

6. Atlanta Falcons (3-1): Atlanta has the NFL’s fourth-best offense and is eighth in points scored. The Falcons will be tested against a Dolphins defense ranked seventh overall but might benefit from playing a Miami team embroiled in controversy.

7. New England Patriots (3-2): The Patriots continue to win despite the NFL’s worst defense. They can start to take control of the division Sunday with a win over the surprising Jets.

but a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit was too much to overcome. We could see a shootout Sunday in New Orleans.,Womens Demetrius Harris Jersey8. Detroit Lions (3-2): Matthew Stafford nearly led another comeback win Sunday

but the rest of the team should be rested against the winless 49ers.,,Authentic Albert Wilson Jersey,9. Washington Redskins (2-2): The Redskins will be without Josh Norman Sunday

10. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2): After whipping the Steelers, the Jaguars lead the NFL with a plus-56-point differential. Jacksonville is doing a great job of protecting quarterback Blake Bortles,Womens Albert Wilson Jersey, who threw just 14 passes in Sunday’s victory.

but Seattle forced five turnovers in the win.,11. Seattle Seahawks (3-2): The defense finally looked like "the Legion of Boom" while holding the Rams to just 10 points. The Rams were averaging 35 points per game

12. New York Jets (3-2): Some joked the Jets might not win a game this season. Here they are, after five weeks, tied atop the AFC East with a huge matchup against the Patriots next.

13. Buffalo Bills (3-2): Sean McDermott tried to warn his team about the pitfalls of being over-confident against the Bengals. They’ll surely be stewing over that loss during this week’s bye.

they’ll head to Arizona looking to get back over .500.,14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2): The Bucs were three missed field-goal attempts from beating the Patriots. Now with a new kicker

a flashback to his disappointing rookie season. He’ll have to play significantly better against an opportunistic Jaguars defense Sunday.,15. Los Angeles Rams (3-2): Jared Goff turned the ball over three times against the Seahawks

but at least he snapped his streak of 10 straight games with an interception. He’ll look for his second straight turnover-free game against the Bears.,16. Baltimore Ravens (3-2): Joe Flacco has not played well this season

17. New Orleans Saints (2-2): The Saints defense, especially dinged cornerbacks Sterling Moore and Marshon Lattimore, had better hope it gets enough rest over the bye week with Matthew Stafford and the Lions coming to town.
