After a week clouded in COVID-19 confusion, the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers are actually going to play a real game against each other in Week 16 for very real results. What felt like a contest that was likely going to be postponed turned into a matchup in which both teams are limited but they can still get it done on the field. There’s money to be made and that means there’s no stopping another game of NFL football.
There’s a lot at stake for both teams here in Week 16, but that’s surprisingly true of almost every NFL franchise these days. This is perhaps the most competitive season in recent memory, which means everyone is fighting for their playoff chances and/or to secure very important positioning.
The Chiefs finally landed control of the No. 1 spot in the AFC overall and a two-game lead in the AFC West, which gives them more cushion than ever. However, several teams hold the tiebreaker against them, so the Chiefs can ill afford to lose a game and allow someone like the Tennessee Titans, as just one example, to catch them in the standings.
What channel are the Chiefs on in Week 16 against the Steelers?
For the Steelers, there’s a slight chance they can still make the playoffs and for a team with an aging veteran quarterback like Ben Roethlisberger at the helm, it’s his last gasp at any potential NFL glory. Will that make him more dangerous? We’ll wait and see.
For those wanting to watch the game, the Chiefs are back on a regular Sunday slate after a nice mini-bye following their Thursday night primetime victory over the Chargers in Week 15.
Kickoff is scheduled for 3:25 p.m. C.T. If CBS does not work for you and you’re looking for a streaming option, our friends at Fubo TV have you covered. You can also check out the Chiefs mobile app and other options here.
