Monday night will showcase two teams headed in two very different directions in 2012. The 1-7 Chiefs will come to Heinz Field to meet the 5-3 Pittsburgh Steelers who may have finally found their stride.This will also be the first matchup for Steelers' offensive coordinator - and former Chiefs' head coach - Todd Haley against his former team.While the Steelers' stock is rising, the Chiefs' is at an all-time low, hitting rock bottom during the controversy surrounding fans allegedly cheering an injury to starting quarterback Matt Cassel.The game may look like an impending slaughter, but the Chiefs actually match up well defensively with the Steelers, who have a history of struggling against inferior teams under the bright lights of prime time football.Here are my THREE BOLD PREDICTIONS for Monday Night Football.PREDICTION #1 - Kansas City will be forced into a one-dimensional offense.The Chiefs average just under 208 passing yards per game, while the Steelers - even wit...

The Chiefs have talent, just not at QB. Week 10 Preview.
