Chiefs vs Steelers Preview and Prediction
Kansas City Chiefs vs Pittsburgh Steelers
A rematch between two of the AFC's finest. The Steelers put a 43-14 beatdown on the Chiefs in Heinz Field back in October but now the tables turn and it will be the Chiefs hosting the Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium, one of the toughest stadiums to play in. An injury hampers Ben Roethlisberger and the Chiefs will come in as slight -130 favourites while the Steelers are +110 underdogs. Both teams are on a roll and close statistically making this a tight matchup.
This is quite the toss-up of a match but the Chiefs will hold a slight advantage thanks to the Steelers not being quite as proficient on the road especially from quarterback. Roethlisberger has two Superbowl rings to his name but only has a 78.4 QB Rating on the road this year and will be playing through a foot injury. Still, it's hard to top Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell as they form the NFL's most prolific "triplets" although the Chiefs' have a quietly effective offense capable of assaulting the Pittsburgh defense either on the air or on the ground.
Chiefs vs Steelers NFL Playoffs Prediction
Bet Pittsburgh Steelers (+110)
It's a close matchup especially on paper. The Steelers and Chiefs both rank between 10th to 13th in both offense and defense with the most significant difference being their rushing defense. The Steelers surrender just over a 100 rushing yards a game while the Chiefs give up 121.1. It may be a high-scoring game even if Roethlisberger will be a sitting duck for the Chiefs' pass rush but the Steelers are just too talented and have too many weapons most notably Le'Veon Bell. The Chiefs will be efficient but the playoff home losses will extend to five straight.
