Preview of Steelers divisional round match-up with Chiefs

Since 2006 (when NBC started airing the Sunday Night Football games) Pittsburgh is 28-16 in prime time and 14-10 on Sunday night in particular.

The National Weather Service has issued an ice storm warning for the Kansas City area, and Arrowhead Stadium obviously, with freezing rain which could last through Sunday afternoon.

The Chiefs finished 6-2 at home and on the road during the regular season.

The Chiefs can begin to rewrite their narrative as postseason blunders this Sunday at home against the Steelers. Steelers fans usual travel extremely well, but due to the weather and how hard it will be to get to the game, expect a loud and ruckus crowd at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night.

The next it's Bell setting a franchise record with 236 yards rushing in snowy Buffalo. However, to avoid the worst of the weather the game is now on at 8.20pm local time or 1.20am GMT. Sure, there are weapons in all-world tight end Travis Kelce, along with Hill, who also caught 61 passes for 593 yards as a multi-faceted Slash-like threat, but Kansas City's offense doesn't possess enough fire power to blow the Steelers out. These three organizations are some of the best in the league, so it doesn't come as a surprise that the Chiefs have fallen to them four times in the past 21 years.

The a year ago and few months have seen the Kansas City Chiefs be the most successful they've been in almost two decades.

Each one of them chewing up clock, yardage and whatever mettle Miami's defensive front seven might have brought north to chilly Heinz Field with them. In their regular meeting, the Chiefs were only able to rush for 87 yards as a team.

Here are the predictions for Pittsburgh postseason trip to the Divisional Round against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Donovan said the league and the team consulted with state and local partners, including Kansas City Mayor Sly James. Bell has scored a touchdown in six of his last eight games, while Hill has found the end zone, one way or another, in five of his last six games.

Hill has also been just as risky as a returner. Kansas City is 2-4 at Arrowhead all-time in the playoffs with no wins since the 1993 season.

The Killer B's did better than I even said they would: Bell topped 150 all-purpose yards, Antonio Brown went over 100, each had a touchdown, and Ben threw at least a pair of those TD's, getting that triple digit passer raiting.

Smith said his preparation doesn't really change much, but one change since the Chiefs (12-4) and Steelers (12-5) met in Week 4 has been the development of the offense. The 2010 Steelers were built around a dominant defense and specialized in limiting big plays and generating turnovers. Kansas City will need to Spencer Ware to have a big day after he missed the team's last game with a rib injury.

Redmond puts Southampton within touching distance of League Cup Final
The hosts failed to add to their advantage, however, and a number of opportunities went begging, including two more for Redmond. Southampton now travel to Anfield on January 25 as they look to make their way to Wembley for the final.
