Steelers vs. Chiefs Sunday Night Football: Live Reaction, News and Analysis

The Pittsburgh Steelers (7-3) travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs (4-6) on NBC's Sunday Night Football.

Many believe the Steelers will come in and take care of business early on and not make this much of a game, but you shouldn't always believe what you hear.

Arrowhead Stadium is a tough place to play, and the Chiefs usually play better in front of a raucous crowd at home.

The big storyline around this game will be the health of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger suffered a broken thumb on November 13th in the Steelers' 24-17 win against division rival Cincinnati. Since then, he has had the luxury of a bye week to get the thumb closer to feeling better.

The Steelers need a win to avoid falling two games back, basically. Luckily for Pittsburgh, they are 3-0 in their last three years after a bye and have won all three matchups by an average of 21.3 points.

If the Chiefs want any chance to win, they need to get pressure on Roethlisberger. The Steelers are 12-8 since 2008 when they allow four or more sacks. Tamba Hali will need another big day like he did last week in getting three sacks on Tom Brady.
