Steelers the Only Team With a Winning Record in Arrowhead

The Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend and, if history tells us anything, the Steelers are more likely to walk out there with a victory.

The Steelers have won 9 of 13 contests in Arrowhead Stadium including the playoffs.  They are the only team with a winning record in Arrowhead that has played at least two games there.  Under current head coach Mike Tomlin, the Steelers are 11-9 on the road.  Todd Haley's road record is 2-3.

However, the Chiefs tend to do well against coaches making their Arrowhead debut.  They have won 25 of 36 games against coaches popping their Arrowhead cherry.

Hard hitting analysis: Steelers win when they score a lot of points, Chiefs win when they stop opponent from scoring a lot of points.

Yes, analysis like this is why you read Arrowhead Pride. Let me explain a little more.

The Steelers are actually similar to the Chiefs in one category and that's games decided by seven points or less.  Both teams have won just one of four games in close calls.  The Steelers' three losses have come in these games by a total of 12 points.

So, the Steelers don't get blown out.  The Chiefs, on the other hand, have been losing by an average of 12 points.
