The Chiefs’ furious late rally came up short in a 19-13 loss to the Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

However, the Chiefs showed some fire late in the game, particularly quarterback Alex Smith on the final play of the third quarter. After throwing a 37-yard pass to Kareem Hunt, Smith was hit low by Pittsburgh’s Mike Mitchell.

Smith make sure to let Mitchell know he was not happy about the play.

Here is the confrontation, which Twitter user NFL Update shared:

This is another look at the play and it’s possible that Mitchell also grabbed Smith’s facemask (Twitter user Mike Tunison shared the video):
