Kansas City at Pittsburgh

Sunday 10/15 04:15 PM Eastern

2 units on Game Total UNDER 36.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)  RESULT: LOSS

This Kansas City team has done a complete 180 under new head coach Herm Edwards. The past few years under Dick Vermeil, this team had an unstoppable offense and a very porous and weak defense. They were generally involved in games that ended 38-30 or somewhere thereabouts. Now, this season that has all changed. The Chiefs are 4th in the league in yards allowed and 6th in points given up. Their offense is below average, ranked 18th. Pittsburgh, even last year wasn't a great offensive team, but with Roethlisberger struggling, they are ranked 24th in yards and 27th in scoring thus far. Their defense remains very solid. Kansas City has scored well the past two games but that was against the 49ers and Cardinals. Versus Denver earlier this year they got 6 points and against Cincinnati they scored 10. They are likely to manage no more than 14 in this game and it should be even less. What we have here are two coaches that preach defense. Neither is asking their quarterback to go out and sling it and put up a lot of points. I expect a low scoring affair here and the total to fall in the low 30s.
