Finally, a game where I can actively and vigorously root for a team to beat another team. In Week 4 of this season, the Pittsburgh Steelers obliterated the Kansas City Chiefs 43-14 and I would like nothing more than to see a repeat of that game today.

It won’t likely happen as the weather in Kansas City is so fierce that they actually rescheduled the game from its original time due to an ice storm.

The passing game may not be up to snuff, so Le’Veon Bell could be the featured back in this game who is fresh off a 167 yard performance in the Wild Card round. The Chiefs offense has been streaky down the stretch, but their run game has been largely unimpressive and it will be needed in this game.

As for predictions, I’ll give the nod to the Steelers to run away with this one and move on to the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots next week.
