NFL Moves Kickoff of Steelers-Chiefs Back to 8:20 pm Sunday

"Great fans, obviously", offensive lineman David DeCastro said. I'll be stunned if the Steelers kick the ball anywhere near him.

But loud has not always translated to postseason victories.

The most recent instance of a kickoff time being moved for a Steelers game was against the Dolphins on September 26, 2004, when Hurricane Jeanne hit the Florida coast.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are known for their explosive offense, while the Kansas City Chiefs are a defensive team. "It's catastrophic to your cause when it's good-on-good".

Canadian Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and the Kansas City Chiefs will get a second shot at the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. The Steelers are yet another opponent that finished in the top 10 in scoring, in their case tied for 10th at 24.9 points per game.

"There's a lot of focus and attention and you're putting a lot of concentration into each play because you're not promised next week", Brady, a four-time Super Bowl victor, told reporters about preparing for the defensive-minded Texans.

Do not read anything into the Steelers' blowout win earlier this season.

But it's in Kansas City. In those four consecutive playoff losses in Arrowhead the quarterbacks for the Chiefs were Bono, Elvis Grbac, Trent Green and Matt Cassel.

Pittsburgh's odds - both to win the Super Bowl and initially to win on Sunday - are nothing more than a premium needing to be paid for a team that has yet to disappoint.

Kansas City was gifted the AFC West and the No. 2 seed when Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr broke his leg last month.

Expect Bell to hit a few metaphorical deep balls against the Chiefs, making up for the Roethlisberger mistakes predicted above. He knows the Steelers face a challenge when it comes to dealing with the crowd noise.

- Todd Haley said the rumor of the death of the Chiefs' pass rush has been exaggerated. The second came with less than 5 minutes to go and Pittsburgh comfortably ahead when Roethlisberger released a floater that sailed well over the head of tight end Jesse James. It can not be a factor in this game. We didn't even think we beat (the Dolphins) because they beat us earlier. And he had a better part of the game to see those checks and to put us in the appropriate calls in an effort to do it.

Weather also could be a factor, too.

Steelers (+1) at Chiefs: Kansas City is looking to avenge a 43-14 rout by Pittsburgh in Week 2 at Heinz Field. Just two years ago, the outside linebacker had 22 sacks, just a half-sack short of Michael Strahan's single-season record.

Some of the rain may freeze on some surfaces within the stadium, though the heating system under the field will keep the grass wet and prevent ice from building up on the playing surface, he added.

Roethlisberger's toughness and confidence that he can extend any play to make any big throw are the calling cards of his future Pro Football Hall of Fame career. Thankfully, only one spread for the Divisional Round is now greater than five points, suggesting that we will, indeed, have a more exciting weekend ahead of us. I'm just excited that I was able to have an impact.
