Steelers clinch playoff spot with win over Chiefs

So, how do you feel about the Pittsburgh Steelers now?

Maybe a trip to the playoffs is enough to make you forget about those ugly early season losses.

A win over a solid Kansas City team like Sunday's 20-12 win can do that.

Now, the Steelers need a win next Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC North crown.

They're peaking at the right time, so anything's possible.

And the way the defense played Sunday, it's not so wrong to think that.

After all, Jamaal Charles, the main cog in the Chiefs offense, didn't do much. That's a big boost for a beleaguered defense.

Sunday's win was enough to get me excited for a playoff run, something that's been missing for a couple seasons now.

Let's savor the win before we get ready for the Bengals.

There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
