Mahomes is the face of the NFL. But does Big Ben have one last hurrah left?

Five keys to the game for when the Steelers play the Chiefs this weekend.

Steelers vs Chiefs  Wild Card Weekend

1

In week 16 Mahomes faced the Steelers and threw for 258 yards, 3 TD, 8.6 YPA, and a 135.1 QBR. Watt was a non-factor and if he delivers the same it's victory time in KC.

Ben Roethlisberger had 1 TD and threw a pick in week 16 versus the Chiefs. He was only 23 of 35 for 159 yards and was hammered all day. But if the game is close in the 4th or better yet OT, Big Ben is still your man. Don't count him out yet.

Tyreek Hill Mecole Hardman Byron Pringle Name a better trio? Exactly. These guys are 1k receivers with speed that kills and run-after-the catch that mystifies.

4

Tied for the NFL Sacks record at 22.5 (he was robbed in the last game of a full sack. The record is his.) Watt is a man among boys, a game wrecker, a focus of the offense. You better account for Watt every second of every play.

92 receptions, 1,125 yards, 9 TDs, and a field littered with DB's who tried to take him on and didn't bring help. Kelce is Mahomes security blanket. Know where he is or he will make you pay.

Minkah Fitzpatrick was born to play safety, for the Steelers. An incredible trade to get him there. He is a factor in every game. Solid vs the run, he is going to have to get in Mahomes head to get his hands on the rock. He is capable.

With 1,200 yards and 7 TDs on the 2021 season, Harris may be a rookie, but he has figured out the NFL growing into his role as the season progressed. He can hurt you.

T.J. Watt not getting a sack. If Watt is sackless or doesn't play Pittsburgh is 1 and 5. That doesn't equate to a playoff win. If the Chiefs can avoid Watt, they pretty much win.
