Inside every NFL kicker, there is a frustrated soccer player. The Steelers Chris Boswell may want to stick to his day job.
With Pittsburgh trailing with time ticking down in the fourth quarter against the Baltimore Ravens, Boswell attempted an onside kick, allowing his team to recover possession. Boswell decided to execute with a flourish and a rabona that turned into a farce. The Steelers went on to lose.
Elsewhere, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was ejected after complaining to officials for not calling a pass interference penalty, then whipping his towel at the official as if it was a flag.
The Pro Bowl tight end was hit with two personal foul penalties and sent to the locker room with the Chiefs leading 16-7 early in the fourth quarter.
Both of the penalties were enforced, resulting in 30 yards of penalties and taking the Chiefs out of field-goal range.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid grabbed Kelce as he was walking off the field and gave him a stern talk. After the ejection, Kelce whipped his gloves into the crowd as he exited the field.
Kansas City went on to win the game without Kelce, with the final score ending up 19-14.
