Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers (-5)
Sunday 1 p.m., CBS
Ben Roethlisberger will clean up the messy home turnovers and pick up where Rivers left off in ripping the Chiefs’ defense. Patrick Mahomes will duel his counterpart in a high-scoring affair, as the Steelers have few answers for the diversity and aggressiveness of Andy Reid’s offense. The Week 1 tie makes Pittsburgh the more desperate team in the early AFC playoff race.
PICK: Steelers win 34-27 and cover the spread.
