Tyler Palko will likely lead the Kansas City Chiefs onto the field for a second week, but he has another tall order cut out for him. He faces the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Kansas City Chiefs' experiment with Tyler Palko will last for at least one more game. While the team did pick up Kyle Orton off waivers on Wednesday, it is probably too late for him to get into practice and assume the starter's position. Reports out of Kansas City believe that Palko will be the starter. Either way, the Pittsburgh Steelers were still going to be big favorites in this game. Odds Shark opened the line at 10-1/2 points and it has moved as high as 11-1/2 in favor of the Steelers.
The Steelers have one of the strongest defenses in the league (No. 3 in passing, No. 6 in rushing) and the Chiefs were able to score just three points against the New England Patriots last week. The over/under opened at 39-1/2 points and has risen to just 40 points. If the score approaches that number, it very well could be all in the Steelers' points column.
