Steelers advance, headed to KC

The Steelers have advanced to the AFC Divisional Playoff round with the win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

The Steelers will play the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, January 15. Kickoff for the game is set for 1:05 p.m. ET and can be seen on NBC (WPXI-TV locally). 

The Steelers are the AFC's No. 3 seed, while the Chiefs are the No. 2 seed and coming off a first-round bye.

This will be the second time this season the two teams will meet, with the Steelers defeating the Chiefs Week 4 of the season, 43-14, at Heinz Field.

It was Le'Veon Bell's first game back after serving a three-game suspension, and he carried the ball 18 times for 144 yards. Bell also had five catches for 34 yards.

Ben Roethlisberger had a strong outing, completing 22 of 27 passes for 300 yards while throwing five touchdown passes, including two to Antonio Brown, who had four receptions for 64 yards.

Turnovers played a key role, with Stephon Tuitt recovering a fumble that Stephon Tuitt forced, and Ryan Shazier intercepting Alex Smith. The turnovers resulted in 15 points for the Steelers. 

The two franchises have played once in the postseason, with the Chiefs winning 27-24 in overtime in the AFC Wild Card game on Jan. 8, 1994.
