There's no doubt in my mind that other than New England, the dysfunctional divas in Pittsburgh have become my new most hated team. Like perhaps many of you, I've bitten the dust in my survivor pool thanks to their utter incompetence against the lowly Jaguars. On paper, the Steelers boast one of the best teams in the league based on sheer, raw talent. But, is Big Ben simply too old? Is he over? And if he threw five INTs to Jacksonville in Pennsylvania, what's he going to do with the crowd noise at Arrowhead against one of the leagues most ferocious defenses? Can Pittsburgh rebound?

They're facing arguably the best team in the league. Alex Smith looks unstoppable…never thought I'd write that one. Kareem Hunt is on pace to garner not only Rookie of the Year honors, but is it too early to start discussing MVP? There's not a snowball's chance in hell Kansas City is losing this game. Revenge has got to be on KC's mind after losing in both the regular season and the playoffs to Pittsburgh last season. I'm willing to lay the points in this one but I'm buying it down. Take the Kansas City Chiefs (-3).


In the National Football League Game of the Week for Week 6 - the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pittsburgh Steelers were projected as one of the best teams in the league, but with losses to the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars, their season is in doubt. The Steelers are tied with Baltimore for the top spot in the AFC North. Kansas City is a field goal favorite in this game at home over the Steelers.

The Kansas City Chiefs won on Sunday Night Football over Houston and remain the only unbeaten team in all of the National Football League. Andy Reid and his Chiefs started the season with a thrilling win on the road at the New England Patriots which springboarded them to their 5-0 start.  Kansas City then scored 42 points in the win over Houston. The Chiefs lead the AFC West over Denver.

The Steelers are really struggling to get things going. Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions in the home loss to the Jaguars. Now, he faces a Kansas City team that is one of the best, especially at home. The Chiefs have a couple fantastic offensive threats in Kareem Hunt and Tyreke Hill. If you forget about those two - Travis Kelce can make the play as well. Look for Kansas City to remain unbeaten and cover the spread, as they force Big Ben into more turnover issues.

My game of the week pick is the Kansas City Chiefs -4 at home over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
