1999 Week 15 Pittsburgh Steelers (5-8) at Kansas City Chiefs (9-4)
Saturday Dec 18, 1999
Start Time: 12:41pm
Stadium: Arrowhead Stadium
Steelers were essentially out of the playoffs at this point, but the Chiefs were fighting for a playoff spot with three games left. Tony Gonzalez had a big day against the Steelers defense along with WR Derrick Alexander on one nutty rushing play that went for an 82 yard touchdown. The Chiefs defense forced 4 turnovers against Steelers QB Mike Tomczak who just had a terrible afternoon passing the ball. This would actually be Tomczak's last season in the NFL, ending a 17 year journeyman odyssey, mostly as backup QB for the Bears and Steelers. The Chiefs won the game and got to 9-5, but dropped their last two to finish 9-7. Unfortunately they lost out on tiebreakers to the Seahawks (who won the AFC West) and Dolphins, which resulting in missing the playoffs.
