Home team wins.

KC wins in the fourth quarter.

nupanther 01-11-17 11:11 PM

27-17 steelers.

On to new England after they demolish houston

Crusaders 01-11-17 11:22 PM

Supposed to be freezing rain prior to the game. If there are slick conditions, KC's speed advantage will be about 0.

SportsGenius 01-12-17 01:15 AM

Where does KC have a speed advantage?

Crusaders 01-12-17 01:51 AM

Mobile QBs, receiving TEs, and big time returners have been presented problems for the Steelers.

I'll take the chefs

tallmadge H2 dad 01-12-17 06:18 AM

I'll be rooting for the Chiefs, but the Steelers win this one 20-17

Bballer05 01-12-17 07:46 AM

don't have a feeling either way on this one but hoping the Steelers simply find a way to win. if they can neutralize Tyreke Hill and not let Kelce or Maclin have big plays in the passing game, they should be in a winnable game. also depends on which Ben shows up. if Ben doesn't turn it over and stays upright, Steelers should also be in a winnable game, even if the defense is average.

i'll say Steelers 27-20.

Jim Lahey 01-12-17 07:59 AM

Let's go Chiefs!

Ben has been one of the least sacked QB in the league

He can turn it over from time to time

Go Chiefs!

Irwin20 01-12-17 03:10 PM

I go back and forth on this one. My head says KC wins at home, but I'm a Steeler fan and many times they surprise me in the playoffs. I'll go 24-20 Steelers with a TD late.

thavoice 01-12-17 03:10 PM

Andy Reid has a tremendous record after having an extra week to prepare like this one.


STeelers season ends.

clarkgriswold 01-12-17 03:20 PM

On its face, this looks like a close game in which KC has a chance. However, my gut tells me that when push comes to shove, the Chiefs will turn back into the average team they've been for 40 years and the Steelers will roll.

bedevil 01-12-17 03:31 PM

Roethlisberger vs Smith. I'll take Roethlisberger. Plus, he'll be handing off to the hottest running back in the league.

Would I like to see the Chiefs win? Hell, yes. But...Steelers 24-17.

Not saying theyre not a very good team, but the only place Id be worried about their "speed advantage" is returns. Mostly because Danny Smith's special teams have sucked for the last few years. I wouldnt call Alex Smith mobile in terms of being dangerous. Kelce is very good, but I wouldnt say its a speed issue. If you wanna talk pure speed, the Steelers have plenty(Shazier, Dupree, Burns, Davis). This should be a good game, but I wouldnt say im worried at all

My heart says the Chiefs, but for some reason Pittsburgh always gets into these matchups.
Take away the two big plays early by Antonio Brown, and last weeks Dolphins game was pretty much a push, and that's with the Dolphins turning it over on the Steeler side of the field. I just think KC will be a little less error prone and be able to squeak this one out. And I really hope Alex Smith has a good game. I'd like to see him start to get some credit. He's a much better QB than given credit for.

Now an 820 game sundaynight!

Best game of the weekend. Tough call but I'll pick the Stillers.

Ugh. Well that just ruined it. Was looking forward to 1 and 4 pm starts on Sunday

Irwin20 01-14-17 10:31 AM

Steelers have a pretty good history in Night games (Thursday, Sunday, Monday) as close as I can figure 55-32, (quick look at several sights)
