The AFC 2nd seed captain will host the 7th seeded Steelers on Sunday night for their wild card knockout.
The Steelers visited Kansas City just weeks ago, losing 36-10 in an exhausting game. Since then, the Steelers have won the next two games that helped them reach the knockout stages. What contributed to the deal for Pittsburgh to take the seventh seed was the combination of the Jaguars beating the Colts and the Raiders beating the Chargers last Sunday.
The Steelers are bringing in their JuJu Smith-Schuster wideband recorder for this game. He hasn’t played since Week 5 after he sustained a season-end shoulder injury. Rerun captain Clyde Edwards-Helaire will not be playing after he was injured in the Week 16 game against the Steelers.
This could be Steelers defender Ben Roethlisberger’s last game as a Steeler. The 39-year-old is yet to officially retire, but he hinted that this is his final season.
The Chiefs opens as a 12.5-point favorite, This makes the Steelers the biggest NFL playoff team in history.
