4) Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday Night Football

This might seem like a strange one, but the Chiefs and Steelers have met on Sunday Night Football in the past few years. In fact, the last time they did was when Tyler Palko was the Chiefs’ starter (LOL). The next year saw the Chiefs playing the Steelers on Monday Night Football.

With Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor both retiring, the Steelers defense will not be nearly what it used to be. Sure, Pittsburgh just re-signed Ben Roethlisberger to an extension, but he’s seen some bad games in the past and maybe Arrowhead could get into his head (like what happened to Tom Brady) and put this game in the Chiefs’ favor.

I see this as a Sunday night game because both of these teams are contenders in the AFC and have seen primetime games recently. Plus, not every Sunday night game that the Chiefs are in should be against the Broncos. Give us someone different this year please.

Last year, Kansas City and Pittsburgh met in a game that the Chiefs really should have been able to pull off. Maybe this time in front of a loud Arrowhead crowd the Kansas City Chiefs could run away with a victory.
