Coach Mike Tomlin lost a challenge at 8:51 of the second quarter after a Chiefs punt was downed at the 1-yard-line. Tomlin thought Akeen Hunt’s toe was on the goal line when he batted the ball back onto the field. Replay officials agreed with the ruling on the field, and the Steelers took over at the 1. They drove 93 yards in 12 plays before Chris Boswell kicked a 24-yard field goal. … With 155 yards receiving, Antonio Brown has 9,077 for his career. He surpassed 9,000 receiving yards in his 107th career game, tying Randy Moss for the fourth-fewest games needed to reach that milestone.
