In what could be the game of the weekend, the upstart and gaining momentum Steelers tangle with the 2-seed Kansas City Chiefs with a berth in the AFC title game on the line. This game has been moved from its originally scheduled 1:20PM start on Sunday to 8:20 in prime-time cause of a horrid ice storm that will be moving towards K.C over the weekend. So the atmosphere and tension will be just that much higher with this game being played under the lights.
Both these teams have the talent and balance to get to the Super Bowl, but only one in my eyes has what it takes to win this game. The Chiefs have long disappointed when they have had teams capable of making runs, but this K.C. team just seems to have all the parts it needs for a special run this January. The way QB Alex Smith has played mistake free football, how CB Eric Berry and the Chiefs D has been suffocating and yes, even Andy Reid and how he has this team playing truly together.

Check out these numbers as well showing just how great Reid and his teams are coming off a Bye….Reid coached teams are 19-2 straight up and 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 games with a week off. Those are stunning numbers and with a team that has played some of the NFL’s best football for much of the year that only adds fuel to the fire of my argument that this Chiefs team not only is going to win this one, but has a great chance to be “Super” this season.
