Ben Roethlisberger: Steelers don’t have a chance, so let’s go have fun vs Chiefs

The Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t seen as a playoff team. Ben Roethlisberger was supposed to be making retirement plans.

Yet, the Steelers made the playoffs; hat tip to the Las Vegas Raiders, so they’re now preparing to play the AFC Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs in the opening round of the postseason.

The Chiefs are at home and are a 12.5 point favorite to win. So Roethlisberger knows the situation. Yet, he’s not phased by it.

This possibly could be Roethlisberger’s final game of his career, so he’s treating it like he has nothing to lose. He’s won two Super Bowls in his time and is likely bound for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

But imagine if the Steelers can pull off the upset?
