The Kansas City Chiefs need a victory in order to snap a tough five-game losing streak. Alex Smith is completing 62.4 percent of his passes for 1,573 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. Smith has not thrown a pick in three straight games. Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce have combined for 947 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Chris Conley has seven receptions. The Kansas City Chiefs ground game is averaging 101 yards per game and Smith leads the way with 119 yards on 28 carries. Defensively, Kansas City is allowing 26.5 points and 372.8 yards per game. Derrick Johnson leads the Chiefs with 34 tackles, Allen Bailey has 4.5 sacks and Marcus Peters has three interceptions. Dontari Poe, Jeremy Maclin and Mike DeVito are questionable.
The Steelers are 1-3-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games in October. The Chiefs are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games on grass and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Steelers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Kansas City.
I don't like the Chiefs at all. Kansas City struggles to move the ball and that's become an even bigger issue with Charles sidelined for the remainer of the season. Although Big Ben will wait another week to take the field, the Steelers are still playing well and have enough playmakers to steal another game without their starting quarterback.
