STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Steelers have won three straight in series. Chiefs' last win was 13-9 on Nov. 27, 2011, at Arrowhead Stadium. ... Pittsburgh has won four out of five. Its lone loss was in OT to Baltimore. ... Third-string QB Landry Jones expected to start for Steelers. He was 8 of 12 for 168 yards and two TDs against Arizona. Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick battling injuries. ... Steelers are tied for first with three other teams in turnover differential at plus-6. They have nine takeaways. ... RB Le'Veon Bell has 390 yards rushing since returning from suspension in Week 3, second in league to Atlanta's Devonta Freeman. ... Kansas City punted on first six possessions last week in Minnesota, then turned over ball on downs on seventh. ... Chiefs rookie CB Marcus Peters intercepted his third pass of season last Sunday. ... Chiefs LB Justin Houston has four sacks through six games. He had 22 sacks last season. ... RB Charcandrick West ran for 33 yards against Minnesota in his first start since Jamaal Charles sustained season-ending knee injury. ... Fantasy Tip: Chiefs' run defense held Minnesota RB Adrian Peterson to 60 yards on 26 carries last week, but injuries to DT Dontari Poe (ankle), DT Mike DeVito (concussion) and LB Josh Mauga (groin) make Chiefs porous up front. Bell should keep rolling through Kansas City defense.
