Scouting the AFC North: Steelers Host Chiefs on Monday Night Football Ahead of Divisional Showdown with Ravens


 

 

The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Kansas City Chiefs tonight on Monday Night Football and will feature former Chiefs Head Coach and current Steelers offensive coordinator   Todd Haley, who won’t hesitate to run up the score on his former team after they fired him mid-season last year.  The Steelers currently hold the longest home winning-streak in the history of Monday Night Football, winning 14 straight at home.

After Pittsburgh likely dispatches the Chiefs tonight, they’ll host the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens this Sunday in primetime in a game that may very well decide the outcome of the division and who earns a home playoff game. In each of the past two seasons, the winner of the North has won at least two playoff games, making Sunday’s showdown even more important to not just the AFC North, but the entire AFC.

The Ravens are coming off of a 55-20 thrashing of the Carson Palmer-led Oakland Raiders. Joe Flacco picked apart a depleted Ravens secondary, throwing for 341 ytards on 21/33 passing with 3 touchdowns to just one pick. It was a rare blowout for the AFC North-leading Ravens, who won their previous five games by a total of 23 points, and are now looking more like the Ravens team that advanced to the AFC Championship game last year.

 

The Cleveland Browns were off this week as they look to rest up for Sunday’s road game against the Dallas Cowboys, who at least temporarily appeared to  have saved their season after Sunday’s 38-23 victory over the Eagles.
