After a grueling regular-season slate in which the Kansas City Chiefs faced a much more difficult journey to reach the postseason than expected, they have finally arrived at the “real” slate of games for which they’ve constructed this roster. Now they must begin this stage of the journey by hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Chiefs came into this calendar year knowing they already had the biggest piece of all at quarterback in Patrick Mahomes. They also had star performers and key leaders on both sides of the ball. With that in mind, the Chiefs went to work to rebuild the trenches—which meant completely blowing up the offensive side while making key additions on the defensive side.
The Chiefs have been here before, but several faces are new for this particular run to the Super Bowl. Orlando Brown Jr., Joe Thuney, Jarran Reed, Melvin Ingram, Creed Humphrey, Trey Smith, and more are all a part of these renovations up front. For the Chiefs, they can only hope that the moves were enough to handle the tough opponents and the heightened pressure of making it all the way this season to Super Bowl LVI.
For those wanting to watch the game, the Chiefs and Steelers are set to kick off at 7:15 p.m. C.T. on NBC. If NBC 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.
