The Steelers go 3-2 after being dominated 30-9 by the Jaguars last week thanks to 5 interceptions thrown by Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger is currently completing 61.5% of his throws for 1,269 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions this season. Kansas City, on the other hand, remains the only undefeated team right now sitting at 5-0 after beating Houston 42-34 with Alex Smith completing 76.6% of his passes for 1,391 yards, 11 touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
Our Free NFL Prediction: There is no doubt here that the Chiefs are the better team here and win right out. The Steelers should have won that game against Jacksonville last week but 5 interceptions can change a lot so sure, not Roethlisberger’s best game. Smith, however, is the epitome of form right now and has yet to throw a single interception this season. Again. Take the Chiefs.
