What to Know
The Kansas City Chiefs will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will duke it out with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs next Sunday at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium at 8:15 p.m. ET. Kansas City is out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
Even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, the Chiefs beat the Denver Broncos 28-24 on Saturday. It was another big night for Kansas City’s QB Patrick Mahomes, who passed for two TDs and 270 yards on 44 attempts in addition to picking up 54 yards on the ground. Mahomes ended up with a passer rating of 127.90.
Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Pittsburgh ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Sunday with a 16-13 win over the Baltimore Ravens. The score was all tied up at the break 3-3, but Pittsburgh was the better team in the second half. Their WR Chase Claypool filled up the stat sheet, snatching one receiving TD.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Chris Boswell delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Kansas City enters the contest with 396.8 yards per game on average, good for third best in the league. Less enviably, the Steelers are stumbling into the game with the fourth fewest rushing yards per game in the NFL, having accrued only 93.1 on average.
