Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs NFL Wild Card Playoffs Best Bets

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs NFL Wild Card Playoffs (01-16-2022)

Last month the Chiefs annihilated the Steelers on national television. As a result, Pittsburgh was deemed unworthy of the playoffs. And were it not for the expanded postseason format to milk more money from the TV networks, the Steelers would be home. By contrast, the Chiefs are all about beating the NFL odds for another Super Bowl run. After winning the world championship two years ago, Kansas City flopped against Tampa Bay last year. But with two consecutive Super Sunday trips, the Chiefs know what it takes. And Pittsburgh is the same flawed club that it was last month.
