So, Week 1 didn’t go as planned for Pittsburgh Steelers fans. In a week when all fans, and almost all experts, picked the Steelers to start 1-0 after playing the Cleveland Browns on the road, no one was right.
After a tie, and a 6 turnover performance, no one really knows what to expect from the black-and-gold as the Kansas City Chiefs come to town. Las Vegas has the Steelers giving the Chiefs 4.5-points while playing at Heinz Field for the first time in 2018.
