Last night’s far-closer-than-expected game between the Steelers and Chiefs included a late effort by the Chiefs to drive for the winning touchdown. Unthinkable given Kansas City’s recent inability to score offensive touchdowns but not impossible given Pittsburgh’s recent history of giving up big drives late, the Chiefs made it interesting.

Until receiver Dwayne Bowe blew it.

With the Chiefs facing first and 15 from the Pittsburgh 37, Bowe shot down the field, throwing his hand in the air — the universal football gesture that means, “I’m going deep.”

But then, right after Bowe called for a long throw, he broke to the post. Tyler Palko already had launched toward where Bowe would have been. And it landed where a Steelers defender was.

Making things worse for the Chiefs, and for Bowe, was a half-hearted (hoof-hearted) effort to catch the ball. Bowe jumped but he didn’t extend, possibly wary of a rib-breaking blow to the midsection.

Bowe’s effort, or lack thereof, drew harsh criticism from NBC’s Cris Collinsworth, a former receiver who has the experience and the knowledge to justify criticism of a current player at the position. And for a guy like Bowe, who’ll be heading to free agency after the season, a better try needs to be made in those situations.

It’s not as if a victory last night would have propelled the Chiefs back into the race for the AFC West crown or a wild-card berth, but it could have. The loss instead dropped Kansas City to 4-7, making it difficult if not impossible for the Chiefs to qualify for the postseason and/or for coach Todd Haley to keep his job.

Yeah he got drilled into there for a minute. Not as bad as that one guy was laying into Stevie Johnson during halftime though. The most confusing about it though was him throwing his arm up. Either way, Palko sure deserves a lot of blame too. Maybe not for that play, but he really gave the game away.

I wonder if Bowe had enough of Palko and was just trying to drive the nail into the
