What They Did Last Week:
Chiefs defeated the Los Angeles Chargers on the road, 38-28.
Steelers tied on the road with the Cleveland Browns, 21-21.
Mahomes threw for 256 yards and four touchdowns against the Chargers. He took advantage of the Chargers’ non-existent pass rush without All-Pro defensive end Joey Bosa. He also connected with Tyreek Hill on a few long plays, including a first-quarter 58-yard touchdown pass; Anthony Sherman also caught one for 36 yards.
Kansas City collectively also took care of the football and didn’t commit one in Week 1, while Los Angeles committed two, including one interception of Philip Rivers. The Chiefs’ defense is going to be a work in progress this season but winning the turnover battle consistently will help. Having safety Eric Berry back would theoretically help.
Berry (heel) remains out and didn’t practice all week. He is a longshot, at best, for Sunday.
Pittsburgh blew a 21-7 lead in the fourth quarter on the road in Cleveland and settled for a tie.
Ben Roethlisberger struggled mightily against the vastly improved and much younger Browns defense. Roethlisberger threw for 335 yards but threw three interceptions – two to 2018 first-round pick, cornerback Denzel Ward. The Steelers collectively turned the ball over five times, but despite five turnovers, escaped with a tie, which has to be considered a “win” even if it doesn’t officially count in the record books.
Replacing Le’Veon Bell, James Connor did not struggle, though. He totaled 192 yards – 135 on the ground – with two touchdowns and will factor heavily again into the Week 2 gameplan.
Roethlisberger was limited in practice this week until Friday with an elbow injury; he is listed as questionable but should play Sunday barring any setback. Cornerback Joe Haden, however, is doubtful with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, allowing the Steelers’ secondary to be vulnerable like the Chargers were.
Without Berry and Haden, the offensive fireworks will be dialed up a few more notches. Antonio Brown and Hill should feast.
