The Pittsburgh Steelers face the Chiefs in Kansas City for the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs. Here are the injury reports, spread, and TV channel for the game.
When these two teams faced off in Week 16 of the 2021 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers were humiliated on the road. Now Mike Tomlin’s team gets the toughest task in the Wild Card round as the playoffs as they must once again travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Chiefs.
Kansas City has arguably been the hottest team over the final ten games of the season — going 9-1 over that stretch. In their past five games to close out the season, the Chiefs have scored 35.4 points per game, and keeping pace with them seems nearly impossible.
The Steelers have had extraordinary success as underdogs before, but they really need Ben Roethlisberger and the offense to show up if they want to stand any chance of winning this Wild Card game.
Steelers Injury Report vs Chiefs Wild Card Game
The Steelers have a clean bill of health for tonight’s Wild Card playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs will be without running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder). Their backup running back, Darrel Williams, was limited all week with a toe injury.
JuJu Smith-Schuster Injury Update
After a three-month absence with a shoulder injury, Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster practiced with his team this week and will be available for the Wild Card game against the Chiefs.
Steelers vs Chiefs Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick Wild Card Game
The Wild Card Round betting odds at WynnBET have the Steelers as 12.5-point underdogs heading into tonight’s do-or-die game against the Chiefs. After being embarrassed in a 26-point loss just weeks ago in Kansas City, Pittsburgh hopes to prove doubters wrong and show why they deserved to earn a playoff berth this year.
With the Chiefs blowing out their competition more often than not in the second half of the season, it’s going to take a miraculous effort from Mike Tomlin’s team to keep this one close. We think Ben Roethlisberger gives it his all in his final game, but the Steelers fall short in a 29-20 loss.
