Steelers vs. The Chiefs will have big implications for both teams on Sunday as the Steelers try to stay alive in the AFC playoff race and the Chiefs look to secure a playoff spot. At 7-6-1, the Steelers’ tie with the Lions looms as they are half a game away from truly being at the center of the AFC’s race for the seventh seed. Every game is key for them now, particularly with the rest of the AFC North as tight as it is right now.
There’s been a lot of talk about the Chiefs’ defense improvement, but last Thursday the offense showed it can still hang on a high-scoring affair. Kansas City managed to win 34-28 in an overtime thriller about the Los Angeles Chargers that saw Patrick Mahomes hang over 400 yards on the Chargers defense. The victory put the Chiefs in the driver’s seat of the AFC and was the seventh in a row, making the talk of “Mahomes has discovered the league” feel like a distant memory. The Patriots are still behind them at 9-5, but the Chiefs once again appear to be the team to beat as they seek their third straight AFC pennant.
For the Steelers, ugly victories are still victories. They beat the Titans 19-13 in just 168 yards of total offense. They’ll have to do more against the mighty Chiefs, but how they take on the Chiefs defense could be the biggest problem. Melvin Ingram has found a renaissance in Kansas City, and the former Steeler will have a shot at his old team. The Chiefs are big favorites by 7.5 points, but if the Steelers can do this dirty like some of the Chiefs’ other defensive fights during their winning streak, they just might have a shot.
With this game meaning what it does to both teams, the stakes are high. The specter of COVID-19 looms over this one too, with the Chiefs’ Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Harrison Butker as notable additions to the protocols. Hill got off the list and will play, but Kelce and Butker are out. For the Steelers, Devin Bush was also added to the list.
