The Chiefs have another tough task ahead of them. After being one of the best NFL teams at home in the month of December, they’ve lost every December home game since 2007.

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
