Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says that his team is not looking past the Kansas City Chiefs this week despite the record of their opponent, according to Teresa Varley at Steelers.com.

The Chiefs have lost five games in a row and are 1-7 on the season. Kansas City is averaging 207.6 passing yards per game, which ranks 25th in the league. The Steelers are giving up just 174.0 yards per game through the air, which ranks first in the NFL.

The Chiefs and the Jaguars are the only teams in the NFL with just one win.

Roethlisberger said he hates the idea of a letdown game because he believes any team can beat another in any given week in the NFL. Roethlisberger feels that the team needs to go out and play Steelers football and play well in front of their home fans.

The Steelers have won three games in a row and are 5-3 this season. Pittsburgh plays Baltimore in Week 11.
