Rant-O-Matic: Previewing Kansas City Chiefs vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls
Here’s the latest edition of Rant-O-Matic for November 12, 2012:
Week 10 will conclude with a Monday night matchup between the one-win Chiefs and the red-hot Steelers–who have won three-straight games since starting off the season with a 2-3 record.
On paper, this may not seem like much of a matchup considering Kansas City has yet to lead a game during regulation all season–with their only win coming in overtime against the New Orleans Saints in September. As for Pittsburgh, they’ve emerged as one of the top teams in football over the last couple of weeks and are coming off a big road win against the defending Super Bowl champions in the New York Giants last weekend.
Take all of this into consideration with the fact that the Steelers have won 14-straight games on Monday Night Football at home–all signs point to them winning their fourth-straight game this week.
For the second biggest game of the night, we swing over to the NBA where the Celtics take on the Bulls in a game that could easily turn into an early playoff preview considering how well both teams have played over the last couple of years.
Even without Derrick Rose, Chicago is off to an impressive start this season and is coming off a big win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday. However, if the Bulls have any chance of beating the Celtics on Monday, they’ll need a stronger performance from Carlos Boozer–who finished with just two points after shooting 0 for 5 from the field against the Timberwolves.
