The Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the NFL's darling franchises, have kicked ass this season. Getting to 11-0 and atop the NFL, the Steelers are back on top behind the recreated Steel Curtain. The Steelers are looking to give the 1972 Miami Dolphins a run for their money as the undefeated team that ran the table. However, there is one team that can end that run.
The defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, look like the best team to take down the Steelers. You know about Patrick Mahomes and how awesome he is. But do you know about his main receiver, Tyreek Hill? The speedy receiver had 203 receiving yards in the first quarter of last week's game against Tampa Bay. Hill will present match-up problems for Pittsburgh, especially if he gets separation.
There's also Travis Kelce to worry about. Pittsburgh has the linebacker group that can neutralize Kelce on his own, but Pittsburgh will have their hands full with both Hill and Kelce in the game. It's essentially a game of "Pick Your Poison", for you're worried about defending one and leaving the other to their own devices.
Steve Spagnuolo doesn't get enough credit for opening up the offense for Mahomes. Making the most of the various options for Kansas City can give Pittsburgh fits.The Chiefs have also improved defensively, with their secondary showing growth. There's a possibility that Pittsburgh will run the table and go 16-0. However, if there's one team that can take down Pittsburgh, it is Kansas City. There are a multitude of reasons why the Chiefs won the Super Bowl last season, after all.
