Welcome to game day! The Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium for their first home playoff game in 13 years. Welcome to the AFC Divisional round of the playoffs where the winner earns the right to go to New England to face the Patriots. Find the rest of the updated NFL playoff schedule here. Info on the TV schedule and live stream options are below.

The game will kick off at 7:20 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) thanks to the ice storm, which doesn’t look too bad outside my window right now. We’ll see how things shake out the rest of the day but I’m hopeful weather won’t be a major issue for those going to the stadium or for those playing in it. The Chiefs have had the field covered, re-sodded part of it last week and have a heating system under the field.

The Chiefs are the slight favorites in this game. I am picking them to win but I don’t think anyone can feel confident in this game. These are two closely matched teams. You might look at the score of their previous meeting this year - 43-14 blowing in Week 4 - and say the Steelers are the better team. But that was a weird game. The Chiefs turned it over twice early and then it was over. Not much to take out of that game.

The Chiefs will need to stop the triplets: Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. The Chiefs run defense has been suspect so I think Bell will get his yards. He will be a problem. I hope that the Chiefs can stop AB from getting those big chunk plays. Make the Steelers go 80 yards methodically instead of in chunk plays.

A talking point in this game will be the home / road splits for Pittsburgh. It’s real.

Let’s do this...
