The referees didn’t call an illegal formation penalty against San Diego that would have given the Chiefs’ kicker another chance at the field goal.
Had the Chiefs won the game, the Steelers would have been the sixth-seed in the AFC.
Spuck is requesting the playoffs be postponed so Kansas City can try the kick again.
