STEELERS OFFENSE V. CHIEFS DEFENSE

LB Johnson played in the nickel, He did not start and he hasn’t all season; Daniels was the nickel corner
Gilberry and Magee played on the DL in the nickel, First round pick Jackson did not play in the nickel
RB Moore had problems with blitz pick up; The Chiefs clearly attacked him with pressure and forced him to block, and he was physically beaten on a number of occasions

    Here are the top stories I’ll be following this week in the NFL… Indianapolis (3-2) at Houston (3-2) Can the Colts maintain their high level of play with 2 starters on the OL out tonight?

  • Week 5 story lines October 3, 2014
    Here are 88 story lines I’ll be following in Week 5 . Minnesota (2-2) at Green Bay (2-2) Will the Vikings continue to play like they did last week?
