Who will win: Steelers or Chiefs?

The Chiefs' defense got the headlines for intercepting Ryan Fitzpatrick six times last week, but the offense has been lagged behind. Ben Roethlisberger will need to avoid turnovers to make up for last week's game against the Eagles. Our NFL Nation reporters make their picks. Week 4 predictions (Insider)

Source: Chiefs RB Charles to play vs. Steelers

Jamaal Charles, who is recovering from a torn ACL suffered less than a year ago, will make his season debut Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jamaal Charles will be listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh on the Chiefs' final injury report of the week. While it doesn't guarantee Charles will play in Pittsburgh, it does represent progress. He was listed as doubtful on the final injury report in each of the past three games and he didn't play.

Winston-Siemian meeting is historic

The first QB drafted in 2015 (Jameis Winston) will face the last (Trevor Siemian) on Sunday. Only four such pairs have met before, per the Elias Sports Bureau, playing eight games between them with each side winning four. Oddly, the Chiefs have been involved in seven of the eight games, winning six.

J.J. Watt is in hallowed company

From 2011 to 2015, Watt racked up 74.5 sacks, the second-highest total through a player's first five seasons since sacks became an official stat in 1982, behind only Reggie White (81.0).

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Jamaal Charles was once again listed as a limited practice participant for the Chiefs on their injury report. He could play on Sunday night against the Steelers but as cautious as they've been with him that's difficult to picture unless he gets a full week of practice.
