Chiefs coach Andy Reid opened himself up to second-guessing on Sunday afternoon when he opted to go for it on fourth-and-two from the Steelers’ 4-yard-line early in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs were down 12-3 and many thought kicking a field goal to make it a one-score game would have been the prudent thing for the Chiefs to do. They called a pass to tight end Demetrius Harris instead and it was ruled incomplete after Harris and Steelers safety Sean Davis wrestled over the ball. Reid said he didn’t think Harris had control of the ball when asked why he didn’t challenge that ruling. After the game, Reid said “hindsight ends up being that you wish you would have kicked it” but that he felt the team hadn’t been close to scoring a touchdown to that point in the game when discussing his decision to go the other way.
