Kansas City vs Pittsburgh Preview
About the Kansas City Chiefs (2-1)
The Kansas City Chiefs annihilated the New York Jets in a 24-3 victory at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs’ defense was simply relentless on Sunday as it forced Ryan Fitzpatrick to throw six interceptions. The Kansas City defense was so dominant in this game that the Jets piled up their most turnovers since setting a franchise record with 10 against the Patriots back in 1976. The Chiefs are allowing just 16.3 points per game this season, eighth-fewest in the NFL.

About the Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers are no longer unbeaten. The Philadelphia Eagles handed the six-time Super Bowl champions their first loss of the season, 34-3, in a one-sided showdown at Lincoln Financial Field. The Steelers simply had no answer for rookie quarterback Carson Wentz who threw for 301 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Ben Roethlisberger struggled against the Eagles, completing just 24 of 44 passes for 257 yards and one interception. Le’Veon Bell is back for the Steelers and he will provide a much-needed boost to a Pittsburgh offense that’s averaging just 100 yards per game on the ground this season. The Steelers were held by the Eagles to just 29 rushing yards on Sunday.

Kansas City vs Pittsburgh Prediction:
The Chiefs under Andy Reid are always a good regular season team. They will face a Steelers team with a questionable defense that was exposed by the Eagles. On offense the Steelers will get Bell back and they need him to make the defense respect the run again. While I like the Steelers to win this game has a field goal outcome all over it. I am all over the Chiefs as long as I can get 4.5 points or more.
