The game

In Game 5 of the NFL Super Wild Card Weekend for the 2021 season, the second-seeded Kansas City Chiefs welcome the seventh-seeded Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night football. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. Arrowhead time. The game will air on NBC — locally on KSHB/41.

Three weeks ago, the Steelers came to Kansas City and fell to the Chiefs 36-10. The victory pushed the Chiefs’ record to 11-4, winning the AFC West (and at least one playoff home game) for a record sixth consecutive season. The Steelers, however, fell to 7-7-1. In Pittsburgh, there was real concern that in what is widely considered quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s final season before retirement, the team would miss the playoffs.

Over the next two weeks, the Chiefs suffered a narrow loss to the Cincinnati Bengals – which all but eliminated their chance for the AFC’s first seed – and defeated the Denver Broncos to end the season at 12-5. Meanwhile, the Steelers were minding business in the AFC North, beating the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens in the last two weeks of the regular season – and in Week 18, grabbed the AFC’s last ticket to the dance when the Indianapolis Colts unlikely lost for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Los Angeles Chargers.

But what happened in the final two weeks of the regular season isn’t the only thing that’s changed since Week 16. When the two teams last met, each was without their usual key player contributions. both in attack and defense.

Both teams were missing their starting tight ends. Pittsburgh rookie Pat Freiermuth was on the league’s concussion protocol, while future Kansas City Hall of Famer Travis Kelce was dropped from the team’s Reserve/COVID roster. Both teams had big stars playing but were severely limited. Steelers rusher TJ Watt was nursing badly bruised ribs, while Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was just off the COVID roster. Kansas City rookie linebacker Nick Bolton was still on the COVID roster — and Pittsburgh wide JuJu Smith-Schuster was on injured reserve with what was initially believed to be a late-season shoulder injury. season.

All of these players will be available for Sunday night’s game. Meanwhile, Chiefs starting running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire – who was injured in the Week 16 contest – has been told outside. But Steelers starter Najee Harris – listed as questionable on Friday’s final injury report — was removed from Saturday’s report and will play in Kansas City.

So while the Chiefs are favored by 12.5 points in this game – and could win it by that much, thus advancing to face the Buffalo Tickets at Arrowhead next weekend – it’s also possible the Steelers won’t be as outmatched as they were three weeks ago. With a win, Pittsburgh would face the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, extending Roethlisberger’s career by at least one more game.

Welcome to the playoffs!
