Steelers lose to Bills 26-15, Chiefs now hold AFC’s top seed

The Chiefs have taken over the number one seed in the AFC after the Bills beat the Steelers 26-15 Sunday night. This is Pittsburgh’s second straight loss after losing six days ago to Washington.

Kansas City pulled off a six-point win in Miami earlier today, moving the Chiefs to 12-1, now ahead of the Steelers, who sit at 11-2.

Buffalo started slow and turned the ball over twice in the first half, but a Taron Johnson pick-six just before half sparked a Bills run of 23 unanswered points to jump out to a double-digit lead.

Looking ahead, each team has three games remaining in the race for the AFC’s only bye.

  • PIT: at Cincinnati, vs Indianapolis, at Cleveland
  • KC: at New Orleans, vs Atlanta, vs L.A. Chargers

Kansas City is now in a spot where they could afford a loss to an NFC team, whether it be the Saints or the Falcons, and still hold the tiebreaker over Pittsburgh as long as they beat the Chargers and one of the NFC teams, according to Matt Derrick.

According to NBC’s Steve Kornacki, Pittsburgh’s loss now gives the Steelers only a 5% chance at the top seed, opening the door for the Chiefs to earn the AFC’s only bye.
