Since 1994, the Steelers have been one of the most consistently successful franchises in the NFL, winning two Super Bowls and employing only two head coaches in that span.
The Chiefs, in contrast, have not won a playoff game since 1993, all while employing a revolving door of six different head coaches.
Yet despite their wildly diverging track records, the two franchises have split their last 10 regular season meetings going back to 1994. In 2012, history is one of the few comforts Chiefs fans have going into Sunday's game, as Pittsburgh is right in the playoff mix at 5-3 while Kansas City is right in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick at 1-7.
Last season, Pittsburgh won a sloppy, turnover-filled game that featured 3 INT's from Tyler Palko.
Palko, at least, won't be on hand this season, but if Brady Quinn and Matt Cassel keep their current pace up, they might soon be joining him on the unemployment line.
