The 1-5 Kansas City Chiefs look to get a win for the first time since Week 1 as they host the 4-2 Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ben Roethlisberger injury is the top story line in this game as the Steelers have listed Big Ben questionable with his injury. Michael Vick has been ruled out so it will be Landry Jones playing if Roethlisberger can't.
The Chiefs are only 2-point underdogs in the game, which is perhaps an indication that Vegas expects it to be third string QB Landry Jones or that Roethlisberger won't be very effective.
Arrowhead is also expected to be filled with Steelers fans on Sunday. The Chiefs are not a good team right now so less fans will be attending the game. The Steelers are also one of the best traveling fan bases in the NFL and often fill up opposing stadiums.
The Chiefs have several notable injuries, including WR Jeremy Maclin who is questionable with a concussion. The Chiefs really need him to play if they have a shot and it's been reported that they do expect him to play. Maclin was out all week until Friday when he practiced for the first time. The Chiefs also list NT Dontari Poe questionable as he continues to come back from a high ankle sprain.
I am picking the Chiefs to lose in this game, 24-19. Many others are picking the Steelers, too.
