This AFC Wild Card matchup features a rematch from two teams that didn’t play each other too long ago. One is coming in hot by winning 10 of their last 12 games, while the other needed a lot of luck just to get to this point.

Ben Roethlisberger Passing Yards o/u 229.5 yards
The Chiefs’ defense has played very well in the last half of the season when they won 10 of their final 12 games. This includes holding down opposing quarterbacks, which they did to Big Ben in the Steel City when he threw for just 158 yards. Now he has to go to the tough environment at Arrowhead in what could be the final game of his career. The weather is forecasted to be cold and windy, and this will be a game to rely more on Najee Harris to move the ball.
Pick: Under 229.5
Darrel Williams Anytime Scorer -110
With CEH out of this game, Williams should once again get the lead back duties. His ability as a runner and a receiver will give him a ton of touches in this game, and he should be a go-to guy in the red zone.
Patrick Mahomes Passing Yards o/u 280.5
In the game a couple of weeks ago, Mahomes attempted a season-low 30 passes and finished with another season-low 258 yards. The Pittsburgh secondary has been the better part of the defense this season, and this will have the Chiefs leaning more towards the run as they did in that last game against the Steelers. Mahomes will come close to this number as he will certainly make some big plays, but the confident pick is to go under.
Pick: Under 280.5
