The Steelers made their way to the playoffs last Sunday, but there aren’t many people giving them much of a chance to stay.

The No.7 seed draw means they’ll be at Arrowhead Stadium this Sunday night and it doesn’t take long to remember the last time they visited the Chiefs. They were in Kansas City in Week 16 and fell 30-0 on their way to a 36-10 victory that helped many view the Steelers’ playoff prospects as a pipe dream.

On Tuesday, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said the Chiefs “have treated us definitely” but the Steelers will not be “crippled” by the result as they prepare to return to the scene. beating.

“We accept that we didn’t play well enough last time around,” Tomlin said, via Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Revue. “We recognize that we haven’t planned well enough, but this was the last time. We’re excited about the preparation process this time around, coming up with a better plan, putting the guys in position to make more consistent plays, especially in the heavy moments and the situational ball.

Slow starts plagued the Steelers throughout the regular season. Another one this weekend will likely result in an early exit from the playoff tournament.
