The Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs will take the NFL’s center stage on Monday Night Football this week at Heinz Field. It will be the first time that current Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley will face the Chiefs since being ousted as their head coach during the 2011 season when the Chiefs had a 5-8 record.
Kansas City was disappointing last season after a flurry of injuries to key players and they had hoped that a change at the top would help turn things around.
Now, the Chiefs sit at 1-7 and in last place in the AFC West midway through the 2012-13 NFL season. For Kansas City things have only gotten worse and their former head coach will have a golden opportunity to stick it to the franchise on Monday night.
The Steelers offense features Ben Roethlisberger and a trio of highly talented, speedy wide receiver. Of course, the offensive attack may be without starting wide receiver Antonio Brown, but the Steelers arsenal is so diverse that they will find a way to move the ball and find the endzone against the Chiefs.
You can be sure that Haley will be creative and try to score at all costs.
In fact, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday on SportsCenter that Haley would not hesitate to run up the score against the Chiefs if the opportunity presents itself.
While the Steelers – Chiefs game may not be the one to catch your attention at first glance on the week 10 NFL schedule, it will be one worth watching to see the offensive fireworks.
