Chiefs/Cowboys (Texans/Cowboys) pregame

With the way this Chiefs team has performed this year, its apparent that the Chiefs have to rely on deactivated players from the opposing team. This week, the Cowboys number one kick returner and leader in receiving yards will sit out for todays old school game. The Cowboys offense will have some setbacks without Felix Jones and Roy Williams. They’ll have to rely highly on Marion Barber, Tashard Choice, Patrick Crayton and Jason Witten. Witten, the leader in receptions for the Cowboys and only two yards behind Williams. Crayton has also been a key asset as well for the Cowboys receiving core this year. Barber is not going to be able to take all the carries for the Cowboys. Choice has struggled a little bit this year while trying to fill in for Barber. The Chiefs have limited their key injuries heading into this game, that means its time for the Chiefs to take advantage of the injuries and woes of the Cowboys. –Keys to the game 1. LSU Ends–Glenn Dorsey and rookie Tyson Jackson, both defensive ends that played in LSU (also, Dorsey was the first Chiefs pick in the 2008 draft while Tyson was the first pick in 2009 for the Chiefs), will need to step up. They have been very quite ever since they’ve entered the NFL. Both players have a combined 13 tackles (11 Dorsey, 2 Jackson) and no sacks. Despite the Cowboys have a strong offensive line, Tony Romo cannot handle pressure. It’s been proven ever since he has came off the bench to become the number one quarterback for the Cowboys. 2. Flowers pick 6–Brandon Flowers has been quiet this season so far in his three games with one key interception early in vs the Giant last week before New York put the game away. Flowers could be a game changer if Romo cannot make the right decisions, especially with Williams out. 3. Two minute drill–As mentioned before, Romo simply cannot get the job done while under pressure. If Romo has to put together a game winning drive, then the Chiefs defense will need to hold. This game will come down to Tony Romo and whether or not he can play under pressure in one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL. The Chiefs offense should put some points on the score board. The defense will have to come through and limit the Cowboys offense in scoring.

Chiefs/Steelers pregame

Let’s just put it this way, whether or not Dwayne Bowe and Troy Polamalu were absent from this game or not, the Steelers would have found a way to win. Early in the week, when reports stated that Polamalu was out, before Bowe’s suspension, I felt Bowe, Chris Chambers and Bobby Wade could be possible impact players with some thin safeties for the Steelers. With Bowe not being allowed to compete, it evens up everything. Above all else, this is the Pittsburgh Steelers the Chiefs are playing with.

Keys to the game for the Chiefs:

1–Feed Jamaal Charles: Charles ran for 100 yards last week, his second 100-yard game in his career. The Chiefs receiving core hasn’t made a whole lot of sparks until Chambers was signed by Kansas City. Charles is a very good running back who’s got a strong resume and can help the Chiefs to avoid embarrassment.

2–Low-Key Safeties: The Steelers are thin on the defensive backfield, despite still having a good core of cornerbacks. Bobby Wade and Chris Chambers will need to be strong and come through for Matt Cassel.

Injury reports–

Steelers Inactives: FB Carey Davis, SS Troy Polamalu, G Kraig Urbik, OT Tony Hills, DE Sunny Harris, WR Shaun McDonald and DE Travis Kirschke. The inactive third quarterback is Dennis Dixon.

Chiefs Inactives: OLB Mike Vrabel, OLB Justin Rogers, RG Andy Alleman, RB Dantrell Savage, CB Donald Washington, TE Jake O’Connell and LB David Herron. Matt  Gutierrez is the inactive third quarterback.

Pittsburgh should be able to pull out an easy victory, 30-10
