The Chiefs had a very solid season at 12-4. They took advantage of their division with a 6-0 record, but were 6-4 outside the division, including a 43-14 loss to the Steelers back in October. I was ready to pick the Chiefs to win this one, but then I started thinking about how I’m a big believer that teams on a long-sustained roll heading into the playoffs will keep at it.

The Steelers have won eight games in a row now, all with the right mix of a hard-hitting defense, a commitment to the running game, and clutch plays from the best receiver in the game, Antonio Brown. The weather could be a factor, but regardless of that, I like Pittsburgh to continue riding their hot streak to victory. Steelers 24, Chiefs 21.
