NFL Divisional Round Picks: Pittsburgh Steelers Vs Kansas City Chiefs

That is, unless the weather forecast in Kansas City looks bad and Le'Veon Bell is coming to town. The defence has pulled things together and dominated the Miami Dolphins in Sunday's lopsided triumph in their first-round playoff game, and now the Steelers count it as a strength entering this weekend's AFC semifinal at Kansas City. Shazier, who had 3.5 sacks this season, has 38 tackles since the Steelers' Week 11 win at Cleveland and has interceptions in each of the past three games. "But moving forward we need to make sure we limit those mistakes, and I'll start with myself". But, the Steelers offense will find ways to move the ball, even against the Chiefs stout defense and win on the road. At this point, they are a 1-point favorite.

Catching Travis Kelce on a football field has proven far more hard. That's just not what this time of the year is about.

The other AFC game isn't expected to be almost as close. Chiefs coach Andy Reid has 11 playoff wins, second to Patriots' Bill Belichick (23) among active head coaches. "I think it says a lot when you humble yourself and you just let your QB run the show when needed".

"Never seen anybody like that", Sutton said.

In the first week of October, the Steelers were also without Ryan Shazier. Brown turned two short passes from Roethlisberger, one on a screen and one on a slant, into touchdowns of 50 and 62 yards on their first two offensive possessions.

Now it's onto stopping the Steelers' Big 3.

Since beating the Steelers, 27-24, in overtime in 1994, the Chiefs have played four playoff games at Arrowhead. His penchant for taking advantage of overcommitting tacklers - setting up one defender with the idea of making the next one miss - is the gridiron equivalent of Magic Johnson's legendary court vision (if not Steph Curry's game-changing deep range).

That legislative malpractice would be embarrassing if people like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or Speaker Paul Ryan were capable of embarrassment.

General manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement Monday the team is continuing to gather information and remains in communication with the NFL as part of the league's personal conduct policy. That's not something you ever anticipate doing. "They may just play their game".

I know, not exactly going out on a limb here, but the point is, that 43-14 Steelers victory over the Chiefs at Heinz Field that day was an anomaly, so we're throwing it out when breaking down and picking a victor in this week's game.

"This is what this team does", Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler said.

The Kansas City Chiefs more than have their hands full with Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell, but fortunately, they have a few things going in their favor. But, this is the definition of a "revenge game" for the Chiefs, and Arrowhead in the postseason sounds like one of the most unsafe home field advantages in the whole NFL.

It may be tough, to the point where this Chiefs team could be the hardest team left on the potential schedule, yes, I know a trip to New England would be likely, but this Steelers are capable of getting this done. It's something they routinely do, but this time it's even more exciting because they're adding the divisional logos. Maybe that's partly why during pregame Berry kneels in the end zone and gazes forward, visualizing where he's come from, what he's gone through and what lies ahead.

"They have some ball-hawks, and guys that could be described as some of the best in the world at ball-hawking", Tomlin said. "Just going through everything". "That makes you the most unsafe when you can do a little bit of everything to win a football game".
