NFL Picks, Week 12: Steelers 'Will Control Game From Beginning' Against Chiefs

Steve Kubitza believes tonight’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Kansas City Chiefs won’t even be a game at all. The Midwest Sports Fans writer is another name among many who see the game on Sunday Night Football being nothing but a pointless blowout that should be over quickly.

As Kubitza notes, the Steelers are on a roll. “The defense of the Steelers owns the third ranked pass defense and sixth ranked rush defense, so they should have no trouble shutting down the shorthanded Chiefs. No opponent of the Steelers has scored more than 23 points since Baltimore beat them 35-0 in Week 1.”

As for his prediction, it’s not pretty. “The Steelers will control the game from the very beginning,” he writes, “and will never let Tyler Palko and the Chiefs offense get anything going. Palko may even be pulled for Ricky Stanzi if things get too ugly. Pittsburgh will easily take this game, and Roethlisberger’s injury will have no effect on his play.”
