Kansas City Chiefs Versus the Pittsburgh Steelers: Why the Chiefs Will Win

John BartramCorrespondent IINovember 23, 2011

Every team, every year wins a game they're not supposed to. Conversely, they also lose one they're not suppose to. This is the one.

The Chiefs will be without Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki, Jamaal Charles, Matt Cassel and Glenn Dorsey. This will be a walk in the park.

The Steelers are one of the top three teams in pass defense. The Chiefs, obviously, excel at their passing attack. Advantage: Chiefs.

The Steelers are in the top 10 in rushing defense. The Chiefs are burning up the run, as exhibited by Thomas Jones on "Monday Night Football" (no thanks to you, Leonard Pope). Advantage: Chiefs.

The Chiefs are in the top 30 in rushing defense. Pittsburgh is wallowing around somewhere in the middle of the pack in rushing. Advantage: Chiefs.

The Chiefs are also in the top 15 in passing defense. The Steelers are only seventh in offense.  They're clearly toast. Advantage: Chiefs.

In total offense and defense, the Steelers are ranked a little better than Kansas City. Advantage: Chiefs.

The Chiefs do have the statistical advantage in punting. Hey, he gets a lot of practice.

As you can see from the basic statistical analysis shown above, the Chiefs are a virtual lock in this game. If, however, anyone actually reads this article, I hope they note the heavy tone of sarcasm.  You wouldn't think I would need to say that, but you would be amazed.

So, as I first wrote, every team loses and wins when they are not suppose to.

With that in mind, take the Chiefs, the under and line your pockets with some cash.
