Steelers Kick Out Kansas City

By Barry Wilner – KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chris Boswell’s pinpoint right leg and Le’Veon Bell’s two dancing feet. They do call it football, after all. Indeed, Bell spent much of Sunday watching the film “Happy Feet.” “I wasn’t nervous about the game,” Bell said. “I don’t watch ESPN or NFL Live, because I know they’ll talk about the game. I don’t necessarily want to think about the game. “I watch stuff like ‘Happy Feet.’” Who needs to reach the end zone when you have Bell chewing up yards and the clock, and Boswell setting an NFL playoff record…

By Craig Beacham – PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — After 98 combined points and 1,040 yards of spectacular offensive play, the highest-scoring Rose Bowl in history rested on the left foot of a Southern California kicker who had already missed two field goals.

His kick was true. And the Trojans got their storybook finish…
