Ben Roethlisberger will get another shot to chase a Super Bowl, as he and the Pittsburgh Steelers secured a spot in the playoffs after a dramatic Week 18. However, they have to face one of the best teams in the NFL right off the bat on Super Wild Card Weekend, as they travel to Kansas City to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.
The two teams met in Arrowhead Stadium not long ago in Week 16, as the Chiefs coasted to a 36-10 victory. The Steelers had three turnovers and didn’t score any points in the first half, but this team will be motivated to send Roethlisberger out with an impressive performance. After starting 10-2, Roethlisberger has lost seven out of his last 10 playoff games. However, he has a career-high seven game-winning drives this season. If Pittsburgh can find a way to keep it close, anything can happen.
Below, we will examine the different betting angles for this matchup. We will provide picks from both CBS Sports and SportsLine experts on this AFC showdown, as well as a few player props that we view as enticing.
