On paper, it seems as if the 4-2 Pittsburgh Steelers would be the dominant force against the 1-5 Kansas City Chiefs, but with the potential absence of Ben Roethlisberger, things aren't as certain as once thought. Landry Jones will be the man under center if Roethlisberger isn't able to play, and despite a solid outing to save the day against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6, plenty of doubt resides among Steelers fans everywhere.
The Kansas City Chiefs are missing a key player as well in RB Jamaal Charles. Charles was lost for the season with a torn ACL, and the injury has the team reeling on offense. Throw in Jeremy Maclin's status for Sunday still up in the air with a concussion and Alex Smith's options are quickly dwindling.
This will be a great test to see if the Steelers can win games which they are supposed to, and buck the trend of them "playing down to their opponents" in years past.
