The Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night in the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs. Here’s the best way to watch them.

The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped up the regular season with a 12-5 record and will now host the Pittsburgh Steelers (9-7-1) in the Super Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs.

With a matchup looming on Sunday night, you’ve got a couple of days to figure out a streaming solution (if you don’t have one already).

We’re here to help.

But first, let’s talk about the game a bit.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs Preview

Time: Sunday, Jan. 16 at 8:15PM ET

Network: NBC

Odds: Chiefs -12.5

Over/Under: 46.5

The Chiefs defeated the Steelers pretty easily on the day after Christmas, taking care of business 36-10. Kansas City took a 23-0 lead into the locker room, immediately pouncing on Pittsburgh.

Will history repeat itself in the playoffs? Maybe.

Obviously slowing down Patrick Mahomes is a task that most teams aren’t up for. Mahomes finished the season with 4,839 yards and 37 touchdowns – and most people were calling it a ‘down year’ for the gunslinger. If nothing else, that anecdote proves how incredible Mahomes has been throughout his career.

But, the Chiefs are dealing with some injuries to key players. Tyreek Hill is dealing with a heel injury, Clyde Edwards-Helaire is dealing with a shoulder injury and Darrell Williams is dealing with a toe injury.

The good news is it appears likely that Hill and Williams will return. Edwards-Helaire’s status is a little more murky, but Andy Reid said he’s trending in the right direction.

For the Steelers, it was a bone-headed decision from the Chargers that got them into the playoffs. But it doesn’t really matter how you get in, all that matters is that you’ve got a shot.

After getting blown out a month ago, can the Steelers turn things around in round two?

Well, Pittsburgh has won four of its last six games and is coming off two-straight must-win contests. At this point, the only thing separating Ben Roethlisberger from retirement is winning – so a huge upset over the Chiefs may be the jumpstart necessary to facilitate a dream run.

Speaking of runs, the offense runs through rookie running back Najee Harris. Harris is dealing with an elbow injury, but it sounds like he’ll be ready to play on Sunday night.

On the season, Harris is second in the NFL in carries (307), fourth in rushing yards (1,200) and he’s scored seven touchdowns on the ground. Plus, he’s been a weapon in the passing game, catching 74 passes for 467 yards and three scores.
