TE Travis Kelce

Have you heard? The Chiefs’ wide receivers have not yet caught a touchdown pass! If I hear a national announcer sum up the team’s offense with this stat one more time, I’m liable to get violent. Everyone seems to be expecting the Chiefs to break that wideout-scoring drought this week, but despite how weak the Steelers secondary has been against wide receivers, I think the best matchup is at TE.

The big question in this game is how the Steelers will choose to cover Kelce. Will they put one of their geriatric linebackers on him? Pittsburgh is hopeful that 2013 1st-round-pick LB Ryan Shazier will be available to cover Kelce, but he’s been out half the season with injury and played just four snaps in the last two games. If not Shazier, then who? S Troy Polamalu, who is showing his age and having an awful year? Maybe Pittsburgh will put one of their sub-par corners on Kelce?

Either way, I think the TE dancing sensation is going to come up big in this game as long as he holds on to the ball. Make the ref pry it out of your hands with the jaws of life.
