Steelers top Chiefs 16-13 in ‘Monday Night Football’, Roethlisberger hurt

Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer (27) runs the ball past Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson (56) during the second half at Heinz Field Monday night.

The Pittsburgh Steelers pulled off a 16-13 overtime victory over the Kansas City Chiefs Monday night after letting them tie the game at the end of regulation, but the Monday Night Football win in Pittsburgh was tempered by the loss of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who left the game in the third quarter when a sack injured his right shoulder. The extent of his injury is still unknown. Backup quarterback Byron Leftwich took over in his first regular season game in nearly two years, but managed to lead a scoring drive early in the fourth quarter that gave Pittsburgh a 13-10 lead. The Chiefs managed to tie the game on a 46-yard field goal as time expired, but the Steelers’ Lawrence Timmons intercepted Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel on the second snap of overtime, setting up a 23-yard field goal one play later to get Pittsburgh the win and send the Chiefs to their sixth straight loss.
