ESPN picks the Chiefs, NFL Network picks the Steelers - Arrowhead Pride
You don’t often see a disparity like this. Everyone on ESPN’s NFL game predictions for this weekend picked the Kansas City Chiefs to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers. And everyone on NFL Network picked the Steelers to beat the Chiefs. Weird.

Chiefs’ Dave Toub thinks Steelers will kick away from Tyreek Hill - Arrowhead Pride
"Now, I think it’s probably going to happen this week," Toub said via quotes from the Chiefs. "They’re going to try and kick it out of bounds. It’s easier said than done though, we went through the same thing in Chicago with Devin (Hester). The weather has a lot to do with it, what kind of pressure you put on the punter, all of those things come into play without getting into more detail."

The Steelers put a couple of kickoffs out of bounds but Tyreek generally doesn’t return kicks, only punts. It’s hard to kick it out of bounds on a punt and not lose a lot of yardage. I’ll be curious to see how successful they are if they try that.
