Chiefs at Steelers: AA lounge

The Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers will square off on Sunday Night Football, with plenty on the line.

Kansas City and Pittsburgh are both 2-1, and hoping to get two games above .500 in the rain at Heinz Field. The weather could be a real issue, as the wetness will mix with a field that was played on yesterday. Combine that with the Steelers being notorious for having the worst field conditions in the league, and let’s hope both teams get out without serious injuries.

The Chiefs will be with Jamaal Charles for the first time this season. Charles has been recovering from a torn ACL sustained in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears last year. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh welcomes back Le’Veon Bell, who missed the first three games with a suspension.

Whoever wins this game is going to be in a nice position. The Chiefs would remain in second place of the AFC West, only trailing the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans in the AFC. A loss would put them in the middle of the pack and in third place of the division.

While it is far too early to get into the playoff picture talk, this game could be a huge tiebreaker down the line, whether it be for a wild card spot or a BYE week.
