The Kansas City Chiefs head to Pittsburgh this week to face the Steelers on Sunday Night Football.  Here are the five things for Chiefs fans to keep an eye on for the prime time match up.

The Kansas City Chiefs are fresh off of a dominating performance against the New York Jets.  The Chiefs defense recorded eight takeaways against what was considered a strong Jets offense.  KC takes on another tough offense this week in the Pittsburgh Steelers.  This could be the best game of the week, and features two likely playoff teams, and the Chiefs need to step up.

The Steelers are coming off of an embarrassing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.  Pittsburgh was outplayed in every aspect of the game, and the score reflected that.  However, there is no doubt that the Steelers are one of the better teams in the NFL in 2016.  The Chiefs should absolutely expect to see a motivated opponent this week.

Adding to the intrigue and excitement of this game is the season debuts of running backs Jamaal Charles and Le’Veon Bell.  These are two of the most dynamic and exciting running backs in the NFL.  Both players add an entirely new dimension to their respective offenses…if they are ready to go.

These are two of the best teams in the NFL, and both should be stronger this week than they were last week.  I am expecting this game to be one of the most exciting of the season.  The Chiefs defense vs the Steelers offense is a top tier match up.  The Chiefs offense vs the Steelers defense may come down to who can simply show up.  With that, here are the top five things for Chiefs fans to watch this week.
