Week 19: at Kansas City Chiefs

All TE vs KC

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Steelers defeated the Chiefs 43-14 During Week Four (October 2, 2016) and have won four of the past five meetings between the clubs. During the most recent contest Ben Roethlisberger torched the Chiefs' secondary for 22/27 yielding 300 yards passing, five TDs and zero interceptions thrown. Antonio Brown (five targets for 4/64/2 receiving), Darrius Heyward-Bey (one for 1/31/1), Markus Wheaton (one for 1/30/1) and Jesse James (two for 2/15/1) all hauled in TDs during the rout of Kansas City. Brown (nine targets for 5/124/2 receiving last week vs. Miami) is the only player in NFL history to score two 50+ yard touchdowns in the first quarter of a playoff game which he did against the Dolphins last weekend with receptions of 50 and 62 yards during the victory. With LeVeon Bell dominating the Dolphins in the rushing phase of the game (29/167/2 rushing), Roethlisberger and Brown coasted for much of the rest of the game - in all Roethlisberger only needed to throw 13/18 for 197 yards passing, two TDs (and two interceptions) with one sack taken for -9 yards the rest of the way last weekend (nobody else on the team had more than two targets last weekend). Roethlisberger did aggravate an old foot injury late in the game but he shed the walking boot he had on after the Wild Card game early this week and is said to be good to go against the Chiefs' defense here in the Divisional round of the playoffs. Philip Rivers was held to 22/38 for 269 net yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions thrown in the season finale (he took zero sacks). Trevor Siemian had 17/43 for 183 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown during Week 16. Marcus Mariota managed 19/33 for 241 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with one sack for zero yards at Kansas City three games ago. Over that three game span, K.C. averaged a mere 12.9 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (third-least in the NFL), with just 11.6 fantasy points given out to opposing wide receivers (least in the NFL), and 10.6 fantasy points allotted to opposing tight ends (seventh-most in the NFL). At the end of regular season, K.C. averaged 247.4 net passing yards allowed per game (18th in the NFL) with 23 passing scores give out vs. 18 interceptions (tied for first in the NFL) and 28 sacks generated (28th in the NFL). This is a ball-hawking secondary, which can cause problems for Roethlisberger as he likes to gun the football into tight windows. This is a tough matchup for Roethlisberger and company as they travel to thunderous Arrowhead Stadium to face a K.C. secondary playing well as of mid-January. Also, LeVeon Bell has a good rushing matchup so the Steelers may slant the game-plan towards running the ball - although Roethlisberger's five passing TDs against K.C. earlier in the year argues otherwise...
