Steelers vs Chiefs 2021: game time, TV schedule, how to watch online


The game

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a Week 16 game filled with playoff implications. Kick-off is scheduled for 3:25 p.m. (arrowhead time). The game will air on CBS – locally on KCTV / 5.

The defending AFC champions are now 10-4, leading AFC West after seven straight wins, including one thrilling 36-28 overtime win against the Los Angeles Chargers to Thursday night football in Week 15. A win over the Steelers will secure a playoff berth – and if paired with a loss on Sunday for the Chargers, will secure the team their sixth straight divisional championship and guarantee at least one playoff game for the team. home at Arrowhead Stadium.

Their division champions in 2021, the Steelers arrive in Kansas City with a 7-6-1 record that currently puts them in third place in the AFC North standings. They have only won three of their last seven games, but a week ago they beat the second seed Tennessee Titans 19-13 to keep their playoff hopes alive. With two losses in the last three games of the season, the Steelers face a playoff elimination; against Kansas City, they are back to the wall.

So while the playoff implications for both teams in this competition are significant, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has cast a shadow over the Chiefs.

Tight end Travis Kelce, linebacker Nick Bolton, right tackle Lucas Niang, cornerback Rashad Fenton, kicker Harrison Butker, punter Tommy Townsend, safety Armani Watts – a key special teams contributor – and player Reserve offensive line Kyle Long are all on the Kansas City Reserve / COVID list; they will all miss the game.

On Saturday Kelce, Bolton and Niang were activated in the squad roster – suggesting the squad believed they could all pass the NFL’s COVID protocols before the game – but on Sunday morning the squad announced that these three key players would be outside.

In addition, Kansas City quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator Mike Kafka, running backs coach Greg Lewis and assistant offensive line coach Corey Matthaei have also tested positive. They won’t be sidelined for the game,

Meanwhile, other players who had previously been placed on the team’s reserve / COVID roster – including wide receiver Tyreek Hill, defensive lineman Chris Jones, cornerback Charvarius Ward, linebacker Willie Gay Jr. and tight end Blake Bell – will all be available to play.

Under normal circumstances, this match would be a big match between two well-trained teams with very strong traditions of success. But Sunday’s game will also be a key test of Kansas City’s roster depth for the remainder of the season – and the playoffs to follow.
