It's not the best opportunity for the Kansas City Chiefs to win two games in a row for the first time since winning twice way back in 2007. That's about 25 months, folks.
On October 21st, 2007, the Chiefs beat the Raiders 12-10 for their second consecutive victory. Sitting at 4-3, I don't think any of us were dreaming of a Super Bowl but, at the time, the playoffs weren't out of line to talk about.
You know what happened next. The Chiefs came off the bye week and lost Larry Johnson and the game to the Green Bay Packers. The Chiefs would go on to lose nine consecutive games to end the season. This is commonly referred to as the beginning of the downfall (though it could be argued that downfall started with shoddy drafts years prior).
The Chiefs have the task of facing the defending Super Bowl champs who, by the way, had a five game winning streak snapped by division rival Cincinnati Bengals last weekend. Yeah, that had divisional implications, serious ones for the Steelers, so we shouldn't expect a lazy team to enter Arrowhead.
The Steelers are playing the Baltimore Ravens next weekend so this game has all the makings of a trap game. Problem is, the Steelers rarely fall into trap games. They're 9-3 coming off a loss in the Mike Tomlin era. Their defense is too consistent for that to happen.
The Chiefs? Well, I don't have that kinda time to count all those losses.
We've talked about it all week. No experts from ESPN or NFL Network are picking the Chiefs, the spread is over two scores and the Chiefs are winless at home.
A win would be an incredible upset.
