    Edit: and which Ben shows up

    Exactly. We can either be a game back with a win or it could balloon to 3 which may be insurmountable for the division...

    Who would believe that A. Dalton is lighting up the NFL? Miami actually played them well but Tannenhill had 2 huge turnovers that they took to the house.
    Connor should out produce Mixon so as always, this game will be decided by Good Ben or bad Ben.

    The Chiefs has consistently started the season well. They might not win a playoff games this year either

    The AFC West is not as strong as forecasted. Chargers are the only team that could give Chiefs fits.

    This chiefs team is much better than years past...... There weapons are ridiculous but there defense is not good at all. Once our defense gets there feet under them and maybe healthy bell we could play with them......

    I doubt we spot them 21 points again, especially in KC. I have a feeling if we play them again, especially in KC with Bell back ...we would dominate them again

    That was with Alex Smith at QB, who played conservatively.

    I would feel better about the loss to the Chiefs if it wasn’t for the embarrassing tie with Cleveland and the whooping we took from the Ravens

    This browns defense is for real, they held the rats to 3 field goals and beat them in OT, they could beat us Oct 28 if mayfield gets hot and their D plays like they have been lately this is the game to worry about after the bengals....

    Like a runner who comes in second and didn't lose as bad as everyone else. Don't feel good about it especially when we game the game away early. I like the way you think though.

    In 2017 KC was 5-0 and finished 10-6, but andy reid pasted the pats 42-27 in NE, which brings up the point why isnt that game played in KC this year instead of back in NE again, scheduling favoritism once again???

    The KC defense played very well against the jags, 4 sacks, 4 picks, 1 fumble recovery and only allowed 14 points, they had a good game IMO....

    When the Patriots play the Steelers later this season, it will be the third consecutive season they played in Pittsburgh.

    In other words, please just stop with the conspiracy theory foolishness.

    Much of that was bad Bortles showing up. People talk about Roethlisberger's inconsistency, which is fair, but Bortles has the same issue, but with more bad performances.

    Agree that it was more Bortles than the K.C. defense. Jags offense looked horrible last week.

    Stop with this always blaming the QB, defense makes them look bad, not bad or good QB shows up, I hear this BS about Ben all the time, when he looks bad, defenses makes him look bad, period....

    That simply isn't true. There are many factors in a bad performance by a quarterback. The defense is one. The performance of his own teammates is another. The quarterback owns part of it, too, and Bortles and Roethlisberger both share a knack for self-inflicted damage.

    Go back and watch the second half of the Steelers' game against the Ravens. Some of that was Baltimore making plays, but a lot was Roethlisberger having plenty of time and just missing open receivers. The same is true of the first half against Atlanta.

    I'm not too worried about the Jags right now because it looks like Fournette might be out the year. Without him running all over Heyward and Tuitt. Jags are beatable. Without spotting the Chiefs 21 they could be beatable.

    It is very odd the Patriots have been scheduled 3 times in a row at Heinz. Seems like every other non-AFC-North AFC team gets home field every other matchup with Steelers .. like Chargers, Chiefs, Jaguars, Titans, Texans, Colts, etc. Steelers did have to go to Oakland 2 years in a row... '12 and '13. Both losses. :facepalm: Raiders haven't been to Heinz Field since 2015... and Steelers have to go back to Oakland on December 9th.
