The 1-7 Kansas City Chiefs were penalized in their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night for excessive celebration on a touchdown that didn’t end up counting. I didn’t even know that was possible. The Steelers had a third-and-seven play from their 26 during the third quarter when backup quarterback Byron Leftwich had the ball knocked out of his hand. Linebacker Justin Houston recovered the ball and ran it into the end zone for a touchdown. The real fun happened when Houston began swaying back and forth in a celebration. He was surrounded by his teammates who formed a little dance circle and joined in on the fun. Unfortunately for the lowly Chiefs, the scoring play was reviewed and overturned because it was deemed an incomplete pass rather than a fumble. That reversal didn’t stop the referees from penalizing Kansas City 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct, which gave Pittsburgh a first down at the 41. That’s the sort of thing that really only happens to 1-7 teams. On the bright side, Kansas City finally claimed its first lead during regulation of a game. It only took them until Week 10. Congrats fellas! And on a previous play in the third quarter, Dwayne Bowe took a pass to the end zone and showed the ball to the defender in a taunting move. That play came back because of a holding call, but could have easily been penalized as well. The Kansas City Chiefs: much better at celebrations than actually getting the ball into the end zone.
