Will the Chiefs upset the Steelers?

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).

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.

Chiefs are in an excellent position

Despite being a game back of Denver, Kansas City has better odds to make the postseason, according to Football Outsiders. The Chiefs' defensive performance so far has a lot to do with that. Playoff odds (Insider)

Marcus Peters has the flu and will not practice today. The Chiefs sent him home.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger on whether opposing quarterbacks might start avoiding Chiefs CB Marcus Peters: "That's easier said than done. If you have a guy that eliminates one side of the field, as an offense you're kind of stuck. You have to pick and choose your battles."

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger on Chiefs CB Marcus Peters: "He catches every ball that's thrown his way. Offensive guys always make fun of defensive players, that they play defense for a reason, because they can't catch. Well, he can catch everything. If it hits him in the hands, he catches it. If it bounces up in the air, he catches it. What a tremendous talent."
