Kansas City Chiefs vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers travel to Arrowhead Stadium to face off against a Chiefs team that is struggling. At the beginning of the season, most thought that it would be the Chiefs that would be competing for the division, even winning it. However, that has not been the case for the first six weeks as the Chiefs are in the basement of the division at 1-5. All in thanks to a five game losing streak.
In fact, the Chiefs have been struggling since blowing a fourth quarter lead against the Broncos. Then again, they have gone up against some stingy competition. After the Broncos loss, the Chiefs played against the Packers and Bengals (all undefeated) and then suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Bears before falling short against the Vikings.
The Steelers on the other hand are 4-2 and without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Michael Vick took the reigns until he got hurt. Now it appears that the former Oklahoma Sooner Landry Jones is at the helm for this game and reports are saying he will start the game against the Chiefs.
After Vick went down with a hamstring injury, Jones threw two touchdown passes in relief as they defeated a solid Arizona Cardinals team 25-13. It will be interesting to see how this game goes.
If the Chiefs lose this game, it could spell the end of any hope they had of winning the division and really put them in a hard press for a wild card spot. This is a must win for them.
This is also an early chance for the Broncos to see what the Steelers can do. Both teams square off in Week 15 this season in Pittsbugh, so Broncos fans should tune in if they have yet to see the Steelers play this season.
