    Game Preview from ESPN.com:

    A Pittsburgh passing offense that went from boom to bust may be back on track this weekend -- and the Steelers may not even have their top quarterback on the field yet.

    With Ben Roethlisberger still on the mend, the Steelers are preparing for Sunday's matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs with third-stringer Landry Jones under center.


    Jones relieved injured backup Mike Vick last week and led the Steelers (4-2) to a 25-13 win over Arizona, igniting what had been a stagnant offense since Roethlisberger sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee Sept. 27.


    Roethlisberger is a possibility, however, after he was upgraded to questionable on Friday's injury report and was a limited participant in practice for a third straight day.


    Through the first two weeks, Pittsburgh ranked first in total yards per game (458.5), second in passing yards (349.5) and third in points (32.0). Since Week 3, however -- when Vick stepped in for Roethlisberger -- the Steelers rank toward the bottom of the NFL in total yards (295.3) and passing yards (164.0) and have averaged 20.3 points.


    With Jones in as Vick nursed a strained right hamstring, and with the return of Martavis Bryant, the Steelers showed glimpses of where they started the season. Coach Mike Tomlin said his team will continue on that track against the Chiefs, who rank 22nd in the league with 372.8 total yards allowed per game.


    "I think it's prudent and appropriate right now to operate under the assumption that Landry is our quarterback this week," Tomlin said. "He is the guy that's healthy."


    Jones completed 8 of 12 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns against the Cardinals, leading the Steelers back from a 10-6 hole in the third quarter. His favorite target was another player who hadn't taken a snap in Pittsburgh's first five games.


    Bryant was suspended for four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and also sat out a 24-20 victory over San Diego on Oct. 12 with a knee injury.


    The second-year wideout started slow with Vick under center against Arizona but broke out with Jones. Bryant caught two passes for eight yards through seven series with Vick but caught four for 129 yards and two TDs through four with Jones. The big connection between the two was an 88-yard fourth-quarter touchdown that sealed the win.


    Antonio Brown
    was second to only Atlanta's Julio Jones with 436 receiving yards through the season's first three weeks, but he has just 11 receptions for 111 yards without a touchdown in the last three.


    Brown voiced his displeasure with his lack of targets since Roethlisberger's injury, dropping from 35 in the first three games to 23 since. A switch to Jones, though, could do him some good as the Steelers may move to a more downfield attack.


    "It's not what you know, it's about what you're capable of executing," Tomlin said. "Knowledge as a third quarterback with a clipboard, or in a classroom setting is one thing, and playing in a hostile situation is another. I give him credit for rising up."


    Going the other way are the Chiefs, who have dropped five straight after last week's 16-10 loss to Minnesota. It's the first time in 17 years an Andy Reid-coached team has started with one win through six games.


    "Well, we're sitting here and we're 1-5. That's real. And we're not playing very well as a football team," Reid said. "As a coach, you're a problem solver, and I have to solve the problems and get that done quick here."

    Injuries, though, are tough to fix. The Chiefs lost Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles for the season to a torn ACL during an 18-17 loss to Chicago on Oct. 11. They were held to season lows in rushing yards (57) and points against the Vikings.

    Free agent prize Jeremy Maclin and defensive tackle Mike DeVito are working through the NFL's concussion protocol -- Maclin passed his test Friday and should be able to play -- but the Chiefs won't use a hampered roster as an out.


    "This building all has that attitude that we're all accountable for this, that we've all had a hand in it," said quarterback Alex Smith, who heads the NFL's 19th-ranked passing offense at 240.0 yards per game. "But collectively, that's how we're all going to get out of it."


    Three of Kansas City's losses have come by seven points or less and another by 10.


    "Things are close, one play here or there that matters," Reid said. "That's really where we have to focus... It's a very fine line between winning and losing in this league."

    Scouting Report from the Kansas City Star:

    BY TEREZ A. PAYLOR
    tpaylor@kcstar.com

    When the Chiefs run

    EDGE >> STEELERS
    Rushing yards can be difficult to come by against the Steelers; they are a traditional AFC North team, which means they believe in controlling the line of scrimmage. Defensive end Cam Heyward (6-5, 295) blends power and quickness; he leads a stout 3-4 defensive front that will be without defensive end Stephon Tuitt, who will miss the game with an injury. The Chiefs catch a break there. Lawrence Timmons (6-1, 234) is the team leader in tackles with 44; he leads an inside linebacker corps that will receive a boost with the return of super-athletic 2014 first-round pick Ryan Shazier. Free safety Mike Mitchell (6-1, 221) is a hitter who is in the midst of a bounce-back year. This unit is not impenetrable, though; on Oct. 1, they surrendered 191 rushing yards to the Baltimore Ravens. But without Jamaal Charles, the Steelers — who have gone three straight games of forcing multiple turnovers — still have the edge.

    When the Chiefs pass


    EDGE >> CHIEFS
    You can throw on the Steelers — opposing quarterbacks are completing nearly 70 percent of their passes against them — but their philosophy is to tighten up in the red zone. The Chiefs will receive a huge boost if Jeremy Maclin (concussion) can play; the Steelers, while they rank 14th in the NFL with five interceptions, can be stressed by speed. That’s a reason they’ve given up six passing plays over 40 yards or more, the fifth-most in the league. They also struggle to cover athletic tight ends — that’s often the tradeoff that comes with having a bunch of run-stoppers in your front seven — which means Travis Kelce, who got more involved last week against the Vikings, could have some room to work. But the Steelers do have a capable cast of edge rushers who can rush the quarterback, including Arthur Moats (6-0, 246), rookie Bud Dupree (6-4, 269), Jarvis Jones (6-3, 248) and James Harrison (6-0, 242). Harrison, in particular, terrorized the Chiefs a year ago — at 37, he’s still aggressive and effective. The Steelers’ ability to rush the passer is a concern, considering the Chiefs have yielded the third-most sacks in the league (24) and have surrendered the eighth-most quarterback hits (36). The Steelers, meanwhile, rank seventh in the NFL with 17 sacks. They like to stack the line with defenders and bring their fair share of stunts and blitzes with linebackers and defensive backs.

    When the Steelers run


    EDGE >> STEELERS
    The Steelers can throw it, but they also mix in their fare share of power sets and running plays, complete with pulling linemen. Their tight ends are also above-average run blockers — starter Heath Miller (6-5. 256) was a nuisance against the Chiefs last year, catching seven passes for 68 yards — so power football is very much part of the Steelers’ mentality. That’s where Le’Veon Bell (6-1, 225) fits in. Bell isn’t a blazer, but he blends power, patience and versatility; he can hurt you, both as a runner and receiver. The Chiefs did a good job containing him a year ago (72 total yards), but they won’t take that for granted. The Steelers miss center Maurkice Pouncey, who is out with an ankle injury, but they’ve still been able to run the football fairly well this year. The line began to wear on the Cardinals as the game went on last week.

    When the Steelers pass


    EDGE >> STEELERS
    Ben Roethlisberger has missed the last three games and is questionable, but his replacement, Landry Jones, is coming off a promising effort in relief against Arizona. The former Oklahoma star had a handful of impressive throws, and he has strong supporting cast around him, too. Receiver Antonio Brown (5-10, 181) is elite; his speed, quickness, hands and route-running make him a difficult cover in today’s NFL, where you can no longer be super-physical with receivers. He is one of the league’s very best players, but he’s been frustrated recently because he hasn’t been getting the ball much. Brown is complemented by Markus Wheaton (5-11, 189) and super-sized second-year pro Martavis Bryant (6-4, 211), who has some explosiveness; he broke off a 88-yard touchdown a week ago, and showed a connection with Jones. This is a big-play team; the Steelers rank second in the league with seven pass plays over 40 yards, which could spell trouble for a Chiefs team that has surrendered 24 passes of 20 yards or more, which is the sixth-most in the league. The offensive line is not without its faults, however; the Steelers have yielded the eighth-most sacks in the league (16) and the 19th-most quarterback hits (26), while the Chiefs rank 13th in the NFL with 13 sacks. They might be wise to test left tackle Alejandro Villanueva (6-9, 320), who will step in at left tackle for Kelvin Beachum, who is out for the year with an ACL tear.

    Special teams


    EDGE >>
    CHIEFS
    The Steelers are on their fourth kicker since the preseason, as they signed Chris Boswell earlier this month to replace the struggling Josh Scobee. Boswell has responded by going a perfect 5-for-5 on field goals, and was recently named the AFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week. Cairo Santos is only 12-of-15, but one miss was a ludicrous 66-yarder. Santos also has a better touchback percentage. Punter Dustin Colquitt is about even with Pittsburgh’s Jordan Berry in punts inside the 20, while Berry has the edge in fair catches. The Steelers also have the edge in kick- and punt-return averages — both Antonio Brown and Dri Archer (5-8, 173) can fly — while the Chiefs’ coverage teams have the edge in terms of averages. So it’s very close, but Santos’ presence pushes the Chiefs over the top.

    Coaching


    EDGE >>
    STEELERS
    Pittsburgh’s Mike Tomlin is entering his ninth year as the Steelers’ head coach, and he boasts a Super Bowl title, two Super Bowl appearances and a .642 career winning percentage. That’s pretty strong, obviously; it tops Andy Reid’s .583 winning percentage over 17 seasons. Former Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has done a good job since being hired as the Steelers’ offensive coordinator; the offense has been explosive, diverse and productive. New defensive coordinator Keith Butler has some big shoes to fill — he was promoted this January to replace the legendary Dick LeBeau — and has mixed in elements of the 4-3 defense, as opposed to the tradition 3-4 scheme the Steelers have long run.

    X-factor


    EDGE >>
    STEELERS
    The Chiefs going to have win this one outright, because the Steelers do a good job of not beating themselves. They protect the football — they rank first in the league with a turnover margin of plus-6 — and don’t commit many penalties, so springing an upset will be difficult.

    Bottom line: Steelers 24-20

    If Jones is the starter instead of Roethlisberger, the door is open for a surprise upset. But the Chiefs have found ways to lose this season, and they’ll have to show more than they have before they can get the benefit of the doubt again.

    I've been so caught up in what the Royals have been doing I almost forgot there was a Chiefs game today. I can't wait to go to the game in London next week and hopefully we can go in to that on the back of a win today.

    Lewis_Chiefs...

    Please forgive me if this has been asked before, but how does someone from Liverpool become a Chiefs and Royals fan? The 2 years I went to school in Scotland everybody despised "American Football". The idea of big market teams having fans in the UK doesn't surprise me, but I'm a little surprised to see small market teams like Chiefs and Royals having fans in the UK.
