If the Steelers (9-5) win their last 2 games, they’ll come out on top of the AFC North. But Sunday’s game could also clinch a Wild Card spot for them too – talk about incentive.
In Week 15, Pittsburgh played Atlanta who tried to contain the Steelers’#1 offense by concentrating on running back Le’Veon Bell.
The Falcons were fairly successful in limiting rushing yards, but unfortunately for them that’s not Pittsburgh’s only offensive strength.
The Steelers changed up their tactics to a pass-first strategy and ended up coming out with a well-deserved 27-20 win.
The Chiefs on the other hand had it easy last week with a 31-13 victory over the Raiders (and really, with a record of 2-12, it would have been shocking to see Oakland take it).
That puts KC at 8-6, but their 8th ranked defense is going to be tested in this #KCvsPIT matchup.
Steelers are -3 (-115) for their home game on Sunday, but even so 55% of bettors are taking the Chiefs.
The wide receivers have been getting a lot of attention in this contest, mostly because of the popular stat that’s been going around about Antonio Brown outperforming all the Chief’s WR’s – combined.
But when you think about the fact that Kansas City hasn’t had a receiving touchdown in over a year, it all makes sense.
I think Curt Popejoy of Bleacher Report summed up this game best:
“It is a case of the resistible force versus the moveable object.”
59% of bettors are on the UNDER this time with the total set at a precarious 46.5.
