The Chiefs (2-2) have rattled off two straight wins and will look to extend that to three games against the World Champion Steelers Sunday. Pittsburgh (1-3) is struggling this season after losing two key cogs to its offense. Running back Jerome Bettis retired after the Super Bowl and wide receiver Antwaan Randel El signed with the Redskins.
Kansas City backup quarterback Damon Huard has filled in remarkably for the injured Trent Green (concussion). Huard passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns against Arizona last week. His efforts did not go unnoticed by the league. Huard was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, the first time he has received that honor in his career.
Chiefs kicker Lawrence Tynes was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
