    Keep the Chiefs under 24 points. Steelers have good results when they hold teams to 24 or fewer points. Chiefs have been held to that 6 times, problem is, they haven’t scored fewer than 28 since they have found their game.

    Canada salivating...

    The issue is who is going to cover Kelse? He didn't play the last game. We don't have an ILB that can stay with him on the roster so they best figure this one out.

    Could be a long night...

    Steelers have done a good job taking away TE’s this season. Problem is, Hill will then kill us. Don’t sleep on Hardman either, he just had a big game.

    Kelse is the best in the league. Your right about the speed demon Hill. They have weapons for sure.

    I would love to get some revenge on Melvin Ingram. Make him second think his decision to force a trade.

    The way to win this game is with Good Ben.

    He should be well rested, he hasn’t played in a long time.

    Ben needs to start fast. How do they make that happen?

    I don't know, and in every interview for the last several weeks, Ben has said he doesn't know the answer, either. But they sure can't wait until half way though the 3rd quarter to start scoring points.

    They need to force Mahomes into two turnovers.

    Definitely a good player at least. He’s versatile. Will be a good Swiss Army knife.

    Before I read the end I was just about to say that's when they were in a slump.

    You can still Play zone on Mahomes at times. Brady eats that $hit up.

    I think a couple turnovers will be crucial, as well as being able to run the ball. If the Steelers can get the run game going, Mahomes obviously isn't on the field as much and obviously not putting up points. Let's go Steelers

    The KC Corners always start games jamming the opposing receivers at the line and playing one on one. So there are gonna be opportunities in this game early for a guy like Claypool for Ben to take some shots against and go deep. They have to try and do this early in this game. I also think having Friermuth in this game will be a factor since he did not play the last time and a healthy TJ Watt will have more of an impact on getting to Mahomes more then last time as well. Tomlin’s teams do really well in these games in which they are the decisive underdog. More times then not he covers the point spread and a lot of the time as well he wins these games. Not predicting he will win this game in KC but I think this game will be close and competitive and the Steelers will have a chance to still win this game come the 4th quarter.

    KC would be dumb to jam Claypool. I don't think they will. He is an absolute unit of a WR. He has literally knocked over DBs who try to jam him. If they do though I agree with you that they should try to get him the ball.

    This season Ben has been leading comebacks in garbage time to close point spreads.

    If Tomlin wins this game he will silence his critics. He has had success vs. Andy Reid in the past. Beating KC is Tomlin's only playoff win over a starting QB in the last 11 seasons so that gives some hope on Sunday. Looking forward to Ben's last playoff run!

    Ben was pretty good when he threw for 469 and 5 TD on 110 rating vs. the Jags' second best defense.

    It would almost seem like the problem is overall strategy and that if peak Ben can't beat Blake Bortles then maybe that strategy won't beat Patrick Mahomes.

    Ben Roethlisberger is the Last of the Mohicans! There will never be another QB like him...and his Super Bowl winning peers have long since retired!

    I would put marcus allen on kelce. Allen is 6-2 220 I think he has the size and speed to hang with kelce.
