The Kansas City Chiefs are fighting for their playoff lives, but their chances of making it will likely take a big hit this week. Almost all NFL experts agree that an upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers is not on the cards.

The Kansas City Chiefs, incredibly, are still fighting for a division title. Thanks to Jason Campbell's injury, Philip Rivers' struggles and the Kyle Orton/Tim Tebow saga, the AFC West is still very much up for grabs. Kansas City has picked up Orton to replace the injured Matt Cassell, but it's unlikely that he'll be ready to start this week. The Chiefs are up against the Pittsburgh Steelers. You have probably figured out where this is going.

Pittsburgh is, unsurprisingly, a near-unanimous pick by NFL experts to win this game and further damage the Chiefs' chances of making the playoffs. Peter King has the Steelers winning by 21 points, while every single one of the NFL analysts over at CBS and ESPN has picked the Steelers to win.
