The Steelers also got bad NFL bet news as safety Troy Polamalu left the game in the first half with a knee injury.
Kansas City is coming off a nice NFL bet win last week at Oakland. Running back Jamaal Charles had a huge game for the Chiefs in the NFL bet victory. He had a 44-yard TD run to lead the Chiefs last NFL bet week. “It was supposed to have been a hurry-up play,” Charles said, “It was a toss outside and I just saw everybody coming inside, and they didn’t have anybody on the inside. I saw a hole and I just ran. Chris (Chambers) made a good block and I just got of Chris’ block and ran straight for the pylon.” Getting rid of Larry Johnson was a great move and Charles has taken advantage of the playing time. “I kind of like Jamaal Charles,” Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said. “His head is in the right place, he obviously has ability and he went out there and made probably the biggest play of the game for us. But so did some other guys. I know that these guys were excited about this opportunity.
The Steelers are 6-3 straight up but a very poor 3-6 against the NFL bet odds. The Chiefs are 2-7 straight up but a respectable 4-5 against the NFL bet pointspread.
