2016 Playoffs: The Winning Game Plan
So what do the Steelers need to focus on to come away with a W in the hostile Arrowhead Stadium?
Pittsburgh’s best chance of victory would be to try to get off to an early lead. Perhaps the defense can force a turnover or two and swing the momentum in Pittsburgh’s favor. Then, the defense needs to stay composed and limit splash plays.
Particularly they have to focus on bottling up Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, as they are threats to score from anywhere on the field. Additionally, the Offense needs to take care of the football and lean on Bell.
Ben cannot toss two late interceptions like he did against Miami. Le’Veon Bell is the hottest RB in football at this moment, and I would feed him the ball until a defense proves they could stop him.
While these goals may sound fairly obvious, I believe this is Pittsburgh’s best chance for a victory.
However, hot start for the offense or not, the pressure is on Kansas City. On an 8 game winning streak, the Steelers are the hottest team in football and are the favorites in this matchup for a reason. I anticipate both teams to be ready to play in this highly anticipated Divisional Matchup.
Here. We. Go.
