Pittsburgh Steelers vs Kansas City Chiefs Preview

Sunday (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC), The start of the game was pushed back more than seven hours due to a ice storm expected to move through the area on Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Last week, in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs, the Pittsburgh Steelers avenged a regular-season loss to the Miami Dolphins, winning by 18 points. In October, the Chiefs traveled to Pittsburgh and were beaten by the Steelers, losing 43-14 in a Sunday night game. The loss left the Chiefs 2-2 on the season, but they went on to win 10 of the next 12 games and captured an AFC West division title.

Bell ran for 167 yards and two touchdowns last week against Miami. It was a record-setting rushing performance in Pittsburgh postseason history. Back in October, Bell ran for 144 yards on 18 carries against Kansas City. At wide receiver Antonio Brown was among the league leaders in catches (106), receiving yards (1,284) and touchdown receptions (12) for the fourth consecutive year. Brown had the first two touchdowns against Miami, connecting with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on scoring plays of 50 and 62 yards.

The Chiefs can counter with big plays from wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce. Over Kansas City’s last six games, Hill and Kelce scored seven total touchdowns.

Quarterback Prop Bet Picks

Ben Roethlisberger had 29 touchdown and 13 interceptions vs Alex Smith’s 15 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Roethlisberger was expected to play with no limitations despite aggravating an old foot injury in the victory over Miami. He hurt it on the second to last play of the game and that begged the question. Why was he still in the game?
Last time these two played the Chiefs went to a prevent defense from the start of the game and hardly ever put any pressure on Ben with a 3-4 pass rush and little blitzing. Expect the Chiefs to come all out and try and get Ben to put up a few interceptions. If his leg slows him down a little, then the Chiefs could just have gotten the gift they need.
