A close survey of various NFL analysts show that most believe the Chiefs will run their record to 6-0 with a victory over the Steelers in Week 6.

The Kansas City Chiefs face perhaps their stiffest test for AFC supremacy since their season opening game against the New England Patriots when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6. The good news, if it actually helps in any way, is that the Chiefs are expected to roll over Pittsburgh despite a recent history that would cast a shadow over K.C.

Even the betting odds have demonstrated that people are believers in the Chiefs this week as another Sunday approaches.  A closer look at NFL analysts show that the majority of the media like the way the Chiefs have looked so far this season. They should, since the Chiefs are the only team in the NFL to have yet to suffer a single loss. They’ve even done so against one of the NFL’s most brutal schedules, including the Patriots, Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans. Each of those teams has good reason to believe they’ll be playing in January.

Over at Sports Illustrated, Mark Mravic is the only expert from the panel of six to pick the Steelers. Every one of the five-member panel of experts at USA Today believe the Chiefs will win. Over at ESPN, two of the nine experts selected the Steelers to upend the Chiefs at home at Arrowhead. Every one of the eight experts at SB Nation also picked Kansas City to win on Sunday.

If the Chiefs are able to defeat the Steelers, their road to the No. 1 seed in the AFC will seem already sewn up despite being only in Week 6. The Chiefs will not only remain the league’s only unbeaten team, if they win, but they will also have taken out the top two teams linked to power in the AFC.
