Kristina Traughber’s Identity Isn’t In Her C Ray Nitschke Jersey ancer

Traughber, with a theoretically zero percent chance of survival, is here three battles and five years later

“I’m stage four. I’m treatable, but I’m not curable.”

Through five years of standing up to cancer, 54-year-old Missouri-native Kristina Traughber, a daughter, mother, grandmother, friend, and bank assistant manager who was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2012, refuses to let it be her identity.

Dr. Julia Chapman, Traughber’s gynecological oncologist at the University of Kansas Cancer Center, started her aggressive treatment with a radical hysterectomy in December of 2012.

During the surgery, Chapman removed 20 lymph nodes and discovered that 15 of those had tested positive, which meant the cancer had moved to her lymph nodes.

“She took everyth Vintage 1969 Ray Nitschke Green Bay Packers Mitchell and Ness Away White Jersey Throwback ing you could take,” Traughber said.

But through this process Traughber would come to realize, with the help of her son and grandson, there was one thing no one could take, and that was Vintage 1969 Green Bay Packers Ray Nitschke Throwback Team Color Jersey Mitchell and Ness  her will to fight.

“My grandson’s the one who reminds me every day that there’s a reason to fight,” Taughber explained. “He’s the one that I can look at and think I want to see you when you’re 16, I want to see you graduate high school.”

While her son has always been her will to fight, there’s another reason her grandson had instilled that fortitude. 

“He lived through 121 days in the NICU fighting for his life. He was born three months early and was only 16 ounces when he was born and had to fight all odds,” Traughber explained. “So, if that little guy can fight for his life and didn’t even realize what he was doing, I can surely fight for mine.”

And it wouldn’t be easy with the daunting battle that laid ahead.

For the next five years, Traughber would battle cancer not one, but three times.

Traughber entertained her third and current battle with cancer in February of 2016, and has been on treatment ever since.

“To me, attitude is 99 percent of the battle,” Traughber said. “Is it easy? No, every day you’re reminded you’re a cancer patient.”

During her second battle, she would discover the depth of her inner-strength.

“I’ve been through some really hard times with being sick from chemo and living alone,” Traughber said. “My husband left me during my second battle, so that probably in the last three years is the hardest thing to do—living alone with it.”

But Traughber is far from alone.

Outside of her home, she is draped in the support from her family, friends and support groups.

For most, their support system is the sole key to their success, but for Traughber, it’s also finding solace in providing support to others. 

“I can count five friends right now that have cancer that I help mentally because it’s just constantly a mental game,” Traughber said. “I try to keep them upbeat and I guess that’s my therapy because you have your bad days and it gets really discouraging.”

Traughber has lived through cancer long enough to realize the ranges of emotions people go through, but also the advancements that have been made in cancer treatments.

“I tell them just because you’ve been told the ‘C-word’ doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world,” Traughber said. “It’s not the end of your life, it’s just a chapter.”

And social media has become a way to facilitate support and connection in support groups for women diagnosed with a form of a female cancer.

“No matter how my family tries to understand, how much they want to understand, sometimes they just can’t,” Traughber explained. “That’s when I reach out to my support groups. They know exactly what I’m feeling.”

That complete understanding has empowered these women to be each other’s outlet when seeking strength and a hiatus from their thoughts.

“Like I said living alone, sometimes you wake up at three o’clock in the morning hyperventilating because you’re in a panic,” Traughber said. “That’s just part of it and you have those people to talk to.”

Luckily for Traughber, her friends and family are there for the day-to-day life, helping her focus on a life outside of cancer.

“My main goal every day is to get out of the house, whether I go to a friend’s house, meet friends somewhere or just something to get out of the house,” Traughber said.

“I think that creates stronger relationships,” Chapman added. “How do you talk to someone living with cancer? How do you make it not part  ray nitschke packers jersey of your daily conservation with the patient? How  Ray Nitschke Jersey do you make it so that they can be your friend?”

And that’s exactly what Traughber has done.

By allowing her support system to be a part of everything she is going through, cancer isn’t her identifier with them.

“She never expressed a negative thought, she never blamed anybody and she never thought she was going to die,” Chapman said. “And in this situation where, realistically, we ask ourselves, why is she still here? Why is she still alive?”

It comes back to her attitude.

“She just took it in stride. She has a lot to live for,” Chapman explained. “She has friends, she has family and she considers herself lucky and I think that’s what really made the big difference for her.”

“Don’t fear cancer,” Traughber said. “You have to have the attitude that cancer needs to fear you.”

Traughber is an advocate for taking responsibility in early detection and sharing the same message that is the heart of the Crucial Catch initiative. 

“I try to tell young girls just because you’re 20 to 25-years-old don’t ever ‘fear the smear,’ and don’t miss your [papsmears] because I’ve seen girls as young as 27 leave us because of cervical cancer,” Traughber said.

“I tell my story to everybody,” Traughber added. “It’s humiliating, and not everybody wants to talk about it, but you have to because it’s all about awareness.”

And for those who hear her story, it’s a tale that emulates resilience.

“She’s a woman who, in the face of overwhelming odds, continued on,” Chapman said. “And this is a woman who focused on, ‘Okay, I have cancer, but it’s not going to define me. It’s not going to limit what I do.’

“She’s gone out and lived her life, and that’s what we want to see.”

It was a battle Traughber didn’t choose, but it was also one she refuses to back down from. 

She shares her story to raise awareness for early detection, and fights in hope that others won’t have to follow the same path.

Chiefs vs. Steelers: Five Thin Ray Nitschke Jersey gs to Watch

Here are a few storylines to follow on Sunday

The Kansas City Chief Ray Nitschke Jersey Mitchell and Ness s (5-0) host the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) Sunday afternoon with a home atmosphere that could rival anything Arrowhead Stadium has seen recently.

Based on current information, the Chiefs are expecting one of the largest crowds they’ve had since the 2010 stadium renovations were completed.

So, fans planning on attending are asked to leave for the stadium earlier than normal, and all pertinent information can be found here.

The Chiefs—winners of five straight, are looking to maintain their status as the league’s only undefeated team, while the Steelers are looking to bounce back after a 30-9 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.

The recent history of this matchup has been all Steelers, who have won five of the last six, including last year’s 18-16 victory in the Divisional round of the AFC playoffs.

The Chiefs are widely recognized as the NFL’s best team right now, and beating the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year will be another step in proving that to be the case.

Here are five things to watch on Sunday:

1. Key matchup—Alex Smith, Kareem Hunt and company against this Steelers’ defense

Offensively, the Chiefs boast two of the league’s best players.

Both quarterback Alex Smith and running back Kareem Hunt are headliners of the way-too-early NFL MVP talk, but if nothing else, that just gives context to the seasons they’re having.

Smith is leading the league in passer rating (125.8), completion percentage (76.6), yards per attempt (8.80) and touchdown-to-interception ratio (11-0). His completion percentage is the best in NFL history for a quarterback through the first five games of a season, and he became the first quarterback in NFL history to win his first five games, throw at least 10 touchdowns without an interception, and average at least 250 yards passing per game.

Not to be outdone, Hunt leads the NFL in rushing as a rookie with 609 yards on the ground on just 97 carries, which is good for an average of 6.3 yards per carry. He also has seven carries for at least 20 yards this season, and only two other players in the league (CJ Anderson, Dalvin Cook) even have as many as four.

The Steelers’ defense has struggled against the run—allowing 137 yards per game on the ground, which ranks 28th in the league, but they’ve been great against the pass—allowing just 140 yards per game through the air, which ranks as the best in the league.

But it’s important to note that these numbers can be easily misinterpreted.

Maybe teams aren’t having to throw the ball because they’re having success on the ground. The quarterbacks the Steelers have faced are Deshone Kizer, Case Keenum, Blake Bortles, Joe Flacco and Mike Glennon—but in any case, the Chiefs know they have to play at their best to continue this momentum they’re building.

One nugget to watch in this game is the success the Chiefs’ offense has on first down. They currently lead the NFL by averaging 7.70 yards per play, while the Steelers’ defense also leads the league by allowing just 3.94 yards per play on first down.

2. Steelers’ defensive players to watch—Cam Hayward and Ryan Shazier

While some of the Steelers’ defensive stats aren’t great as a whole, that doesn’t have anything to do with the individual play of two of their stars. Defensive lineman Cam Hayward and linebacker Ryan Shazier are playing at a high level and are among the best in the league at their respective positions.

When the Chiefs are on offense, they will always account for #50 (Shazier) and #97 (Hayward).

“He’s a beast. He’s powerful, and he can be a game-changer,” Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Matt Nagy explained of Hayward. “He’s a special guy, and when you get together on Monday morning, and you start talking about players that they have on defense, you put a green star next to his name.”

According to Pro Football Focus, Hayward already has 15 quarterback pressures this year to lead the Steelers and grades out as both their best front-seven run defender and pass rusher. He has 18 tackles and is one of six Steelers with multiple sacks this season. He has three.

Hayward will move all over the defensive line, while Shazier will roam freely behind him at inside linebacker.

Shazier is the only player in the NFL with at least 40 tackles, five passes defensed and two interceptions. He also has two forced fumbles this year.

“I appreciated gettin Vintage 1969 Ray Nitschke Green Bay Packers Mitchell and Ness Away White Jersey Throwback g to know the kid over the Pro Bowl,” Chiefs’ coach Andy Reid said of Shazier, who earned his first Pro Bowl trip last year. “He’s a good kid, too, and a heck of a football player. He’s not a real big guy, but he plays so physical and he’s so fast, he’s got a great feel. He covers almost like Troy Polamalu, just does it at level two instead of the backend.

“They just let him do some things to have a little freedom there to move and roam and read the quarterback. He does it very well.”

Nagy said it’s difficult to prepare for a guy who freelances as Shazier will do at times.

“It can make it more difficult just because you have certain coverages that this guy right here he’s supposed to play it this way and he doesn’t because that’s who he is,” Nagy mentioned. “He’s able to do that. He’s been successful doing that.

“So, he’ll break some of your coverage rules that you have with the guys, so it makes it a little more difficult.”

3. Steelers’ offensive players to watch—the triple B’s

It’s impossible to talk about the Steelers and not mention the trio of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le’Veon Bell, and receiver Antonio Brown.

Roethlisberger, who has been one of the best in the league for more than a decade and looks to be a future Hall of Famer, is coming off a game in which he threw five interceptions against the Jaguars last week.

“I would imagine we’re going to get the guy that always plays well against us,” Chiefs’ defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said of Roethlisberger, who is 6-0 in his career against the Chiefs in games he starts and finishes. “He obviously had an off day (last week), but I think his overall work in the league speaks for itself. He’s a dynamic player. Can do things that very few other quarterbacks in our league can do. His ability to extend the play and really just stay within the confines of behind the line.

“He has such great vision downfield, that’s what makes him so dynamic in those situations when he’s moving and scrambling.”

In the backfield, the Steelers boast the NFL’s most patient running back in Bell, who also often splits out at receiver and who leads the NFL in offensive touches with 129—averaging 4.0 yards per touch.

Chiefs’ veteran defensive lineman Bennie Logan spoke about the challenge of playing against Bell.

“He’s a guy that is steady pressuring the blockers, pressuring the defender and making them commit,” Logan explained. “He pretty much sets up his blocks and whatnot, so you’ve got to be patient with him. You can’t get too antsy and jump from one gap to another. You can’t be so desperate to make plays or what-not that none of the plays come to you.

“We’re going to be sound in our gap, squeeze the gap with whatever kind of block we get, and just let the linebackers flow and just react.”

On the outside, Brown leads the NFL in targets (64), receptions (40), yards (545), and receptions of 20-plus yards (8). He’s as sound of a route-runner as there is in the league.

4. Key Chiefs this week—WR Demarcus Robinson and DL Allen Bailey

A couple of individual Chiefs to watch this week who may be flying under the radar are receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive lineman Allen Bailey.

With the season-ending Achilles injury suffered by third-year receiver Chris Conley late in the game last week against the Houston Texans, t Ray Nitschke Jersey he door has opened for Robinson—the former 2016 fourth-round pick out of Florida, and others to step up.

Earlier this week, Nagy spoke specifically about what Robinson brings to the table.

“Very talented route runner and then ball skills. Really good ball skills,” he noted. “For us, the biggest thing with Demarcus is going to be making sure that we don’t overload him too much with a bunch of different stuff. Make sure we balance it a little bit to let him play fast.”

Robinson has three career catches for 25 yards, which includes a 16-yard reception last week against the Texans. He spoke on Friday about where he’s developed the most over the past few months as he’s preparing for what could be the most extensive offensive action of his career thus far.

“Just getting into the books more,” he said. “I feel like the physical attributes for me are there, it’s really just honing in on my position, and hitting it with the quarterbacks.”

“It’s a great opportunity for me,” Robinson added. “Just to go out and show them what I can do once I’m on the field in a real live situation. It’s a good opportunity for me to step up and show people that I can make plays.”

And Robinson, who is close friends with Tyreek Hill, was asked whether there’s a potential touchdown celebration in the works if he’s able to find pay dirt.

“We’ve got something special,” Robinson smiled.

On the other side of the ball, Bailey is one of the guys who will find himself right in the middle of the action against Bell.

Through five games, the Steelers are running to the right side almost 60 pe Vintage 1969 Green Bay Packers Ray Nitschke Throwback Team Color Jersey Mitchell and Ness rcent of the time with Bell, and that’s also where they’ve had the most success—running behind right guard David DeCastro,

According to Pro Football Focus, the Steelers are averaging 5.73 yards per carry running through the right guard and right tackle, and in comparison, averaging just 2.6 yards per carry through the left guard and left tackle.

Again, numbers are just numbers and can be thrown-out any number of ways, but the guy who will be lined up most-often across from DeCastro—the Steelers’ best offensive lineman—is Bailey, who spoke about his plan for facing this offense.

“Hit them in their mouth and then go from there. Ain’t too much thinking involved,” he laughed. “I mean, just play your technique and come off the ball.”

5. Will Justin Houston continue to dominate in the fourth quarter?

Chiefs’ standout edge rusher Justin Houston (calf) didn’t practice Wednesday or Thursday, and then was limited on Friday. And although the official injury report didn’t have anything listed on him, Reid mentioned that all the guys in that camp (which included Houston) were good to go on Sunday barring any setback http://www.aaronrodgersuniforms.com/Ray-Nitschke-Jersey s.

Houston, who would also often find himself lining up off the Steelers’ offenses right side like Bailey, has dominated in the fourth quarter this season.

Of Houston’s 5.5 sacks on the year, five of them have come in the fourth quarter. He also has three passes defensed—one of which he deflected at the line of scrimmage and was intercepted by Chris Jones on a key play late against the Philadelphia Eagles, and then had a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown to seal the win against the Washington Redskins, in the fourth quarter.

The Chiefs are outscoring opponents 76 to 34 in the fourth quarter this year, and Houston is a big reason for it. 

Chiefs vs. Steelers:  Ray Nitschke Jersey 10 Stats to Know

Here are some stats to know for Sunday’s game against the Steelers, presented by DraftKings

The Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) play host to the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.

It’s a matchup that has pretty much gone the Steelers way recently—with them taking five of the last six contests, including knocking the Chiefs out of the postseason last year with an 18-16 victory in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs.

But the Steelers, who have dropped two of their last three games, fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 30-9 last week in Pittsburgh. They are 2-1 on the road this year—with wins over the Cleveland Browns (21-18) and Baltimore Ravens (26-9) and falling on the road to the Chicago Bears (23-17).

For the Chiefs, they’re coming off a 42-34 victory over the Houston Texans last Sunday night, which marked their 27th win in their last 31 regular-season games—a stretch that began with a 23-13 win over the Steelers at Arrowhead on October 25, 2015.

But a lot has changed for both teams since that game, and Sunday’s contest—albeit still early in the season—could have ramifications for both teams down the road when it comes to postseason positioning. That’s generally the case when two good teams face one another.

Here are 10 stats to know for Steelers-Chiefs Sunday afternoon:

1. Chiefs’ offense has been explosive

Through five games, the Chiefs lead the NFL by averaging 32.8 points per game, and much of that has to do with the play of quarterback Alex Smith.

2. Smith is leading the NFL in several key categories

Smith leads the league in completion percentage (76.6), yards per attempt (8.80) and passer rating (125.8).

Overall, Smith has thrown 11 touchdowns and no interceptions, which makes for the best ratio in the NFL. He’ Vintage 1969 Ray Nitschke Green Bay Packers Mitchell and Ness Away White Jersey Throwback s also the first quarterback in NFL history to win his first five games of a season while averaging at least 250 yards passing per game, tossing at least 10 touchdown passes and not having thrown an interception.

But Smith, who has thrown 168 consecutive passes without an interception, and the rest of the Chiefs’ passing offense will be challenged this week. That’s what the numbers show.

The Steelers’ pass defense ranks No. 1 in the NFL, allowing an average of just 140 yards per game. They have faced Browns’ rookie Deshone Kizer, the Vikings’ Case Keenum, the Bears’ Mike Glennon, the Ravens’ Joe Flacco and Ray Nitschke Jersey  the Jaguars’ Blake Bortles.

As a group, the Steelers’ have picked off five passes and allowed just three touchdowns.

Smith will be the best quarterback they’ve faced this season.

3. Justin Houston has dominated the fourth quarter

4. The Chiefs’ defense continues to be a no-fly zone

The Chiefs’ defense leads the NFL by allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete just 51.4 percent of passes against them this season.

It shoul Ray Nitschke Jersey Mitchell and Ness dn’t be a surprise that the Chiefs are thriving in this area considering they lead the NFL in this since defensive coordinator Bob Sutton arrived in Kansas City before the 2013 season.

Since that time, the Chiefs have allowed just 57 percent of passes to be completed against them.

And last week against the Jaguars, Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 33 of 55 passes for 312 yards with five interceptions and didn’t toss a single touchdown.

In 190 career games, that’s the most interceptions Roethlisberger has ever thrown in a game. Based on his comments after the game and so far this week, Roethlisberger will be ready to play Sunday against the Chiefs.

5. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt continues to put up numbers

With another 100-yard performance Sunday afternoon against the Steelers, Hunt would become the first player in NFL history to begin their career with six-straight games with at least 100 total yards from scrimmage.

Hunt is currently tied for the record with former Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson, who had five straight in 2007.

Peterson’s running backs coach back then was Eric Bieniemy, who is now coaching Hunt and the Chiefs’ running backs.

On paper, the matchup on Sunday looks good for Hunt and the Chiefs’ rushing attack.

The Steelers’ defense ranks 28th in the NFL by allowing 136 yards rushing per game, and Hunt leads the league with 609 yards rushing in the first five games of his career. He’s averaging 6.3 yards per carry and has seven runs of at least 20 yards this season.  

6. It’s a battle for first-down supremacy

The Chiefs’ offense leads the NFL by averaging 7.70 yards per play on first down.

The Steelers’ defense leads the NFL by keeping opposing offenses to averaging just 3.94 yards per play on first down.

Something has to give.

7. The Steelers are still led by the three B’s

Ben Roethlisberger has completed 62 percent of hi http://www.aaronrodgersuniforms.com/Ray-Nitschke-Jersey s passes for an average of 242 yards per game with six touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.

And outside of a tough game last week, he’s still shown to be one of the league’s best quarterbacks. He’s considered a “value” play on DraftKings this week.

In the backfield, Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell ranks fifth in the league with 371 yards rushing, and he’s also caught 27 passes for 144 yards. Overall, Bell accounts for 30 percent of the Steelers’ total yards this year.

In his last three games against the Chiefs, Bell has run the ball 65 times for a total of 435 yards, which is a 6.7 yards per carry average.

On the outside, the Steelers have one of the best in the game in receiver Antonio Brown, who has more than twice as many targets as any other receiver on the Steelers’ roster with 64, which leads the NFL.

Through five games, Brown has 40 receptions for a league-leading 545 yards and a touchdown. He’s also tied for the league-lead with eight receptions of at least 20 yards this season. According to DraftKings, Brown is the No. 1-ranked fantasy receiver this week.

8. The Steelers’ defense is getting pressure from everywhere

The Steelers have six players with multiple sacks this year, including their star rookie linebacker T.J. Watt—the brother of the Houston Texans’ J.J. Watt, who has three.

Watt was selected in the first round (No. 30 overall) last spring out of Wisconsin, and he has also picked up 19 tackles and an interception this year.

On the inside, the Steelers are led by one of the league’s best young inside linebackers in Ryan Shazier, who is the only player in the NFL with at least 40 tackles, five passes defensed and two interceptions this season. He also has two forced fumbles.

Shazier is a guy who is always around the ball.

9. Chiefs’ offense continues to thrive in key areas

The Chiefs’ offense ranks fifth in the league by converting 46.9 percent of their third-down opportunities, and they rank fourth in the league in red zone efficiency—scoring touchdowns on 64.7 percent of drives that get inside an opponents’ 20-yard line.

Both of those statistics can generally determine whether a team won or lost, along with turnovers and penalty yards.

10. The Chiefs are taking care of the football

ray nitschke packers jersey he Chiefs’ have only turned it over once this season, which came on the first offensive snap of the season—a Hunt fumble against the New England Patriots.

Furthermore, the Chiefs’ plus-6 turnover differential ranks fourth in the NFL through five weeks.

Chiefs vs. Steeler Ray Nitschke Jersey s: Game Preview

Kansas City looks to stay unbeaten on Sunday

GAMETIME: 3:25 p.m. CT on Sunday, October 15

LOCATION: Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.  

HOW TO WATCH: CBS (KCTV5 local)

HOW TO LISTEN: 101.1 The Fox

The Kansas City Chiefs did it again last Sunday, earning their fifth win in as many weeks.

The league’s lone unbeaten team tallied 42 points behind 450 yards of offense, further making their case as the class of the NFL.

It was a continuation of Kansas City’s stellar start to the 2017 campaign, though it doesn’t get any easier on Sunday as the Chiefs take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs are all too familiar with Pittsburgh (3-2), falling twice to the AFC rival last season – once in Week 4 and again in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was under center for both contests, and ray nitschke packers jersey  will lead Pittsburgh’s offense once again on Sunday.

The 14-year veteran is one of the best to ever play the position, and has historically played well against Kansas City, winning six of the seven meetings in his career.

This season, however, hasn’t been the same for the future Hall of Famer.

Roethlisberger tossed a career-high five interceptions last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Steelers’ offense, which usually ranks as one of the best in the league, is averaging just 19.8 points per game.

Though despite his struggles, the Chiefs are preparing for Roethlisberger to be his usual self on Sunday.  

“I would imagine we’re going to get the one that always plays well against us,” said Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton. “He obviously had an off day, but I think his overall work over the number of years he’s been in the league speaks for itself. He’s a dynamic player. He can do things that very few other quarterbacks in our league can do.”

The Chiefs will be up for the challenge, as they’ve held some of the NFL http://www.aaronrodgersuniforms.com/Ray-Nitschke-Jersey ’s best passers in check already this season.

Of the five opposing quarterbacks Kansas City has faced, four of them boast a passer rating that ranks among the top 10 in the league, and the Chiefs have beaten them all.

In fact, the Patriots’ Tom Brady, Eagles’ Carson Wentz and Chargers’ Philip Rivers have all posted their worst passer ratings against Kansas City.

RELATED: Chiefs vs. Steelers: 10 Stats to Know

The Chiefs will try to do the same on Sunday, and it’ll start by containing Pittsburgh’s wide array of playmakers, notably wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell.

Brown leads the league in receptions (40) and yards (545), picking up an average of nearly 14 yards each time he touches the ball.

The eight-year veteran was an integral part of Pittsburgh’s win over Kansas City in the playoffs last season, hauling in 11 catches for 108 yards, and will likely be a point of emphasis again on Sunday.

Bell also put together a strong performance in last January’s matchup, rushing for 170 yards, though he’s struggled to find that kind of success this season.

After averaging nearly five yards per carry in each of the last two seasons, Bell is picking up just 3.6 yards per rush this year. He’s topped 100 yards rushing in a game just once, and was held to only 47 yards on the ground last week against the Jaguars.

It hasn’t been the kind of start the All-Pro was looking for, but just like Roethlisberger, the Chiefs aren’t buying into it.

“Even though the numbers aren’t up, he’s still a top two or three running back in the NFL,” said linebacker Derrick Johnson. “With his patience and everything he has to offer, he doesn’t need much blocking. He can create a lot of things for himself, and we still have the same respect for him.”   

Conversely, the Chiefs’ offense has been clicking on all cylinders.

Kansas City is averaging a league-high 32.8 points per game, the second-highest mark through five weeks in franchise history.

That success is directly derived from quarterback Alex Smith, who is off to the best start Ray Nitschke Jersey  of his career.

Smith leads the NFL in passer rating (125.8), completion percentage (76.6) and yards per attempt (8.80), tossing 11 touchdowns without an interception.

He’s posted a passer rating of at least 100.0 in each of Kansas City’s five contests, and has led the offense to over 400 yards three times.

He’s simply been the best signal caller in the league thus far, creating an intriguing matchup against a Pittsburgh defense that’s held opposing quarterbacks to a 66.1 passer rating.

RELATED: Chiefs vs. Steelers: Five Things to Watch

“There’s not a lot of tendencies with them,” said Offensive Coordinator Matt Nagy. “One of the things that’s going to be important for us is being able to try to find any tendencies we can and work with it.”

One of those tendencies – at least so far this season – has been an inability to stop the run. The Steelers are allowing 5.06 yards per carry this season, the second-worst mark in the NFL.

That plays well for Chiefs’ rookie running back Kareem Hunt, who leads the league with 609 yards on the ground.

Hunt has topped 100 yards rushing in four of his first five career games, and will be looking for more of the same on Sunday.

The crowd also looks to play a factor once again, as the Chiefs have won 13 of their last 15 regular season games at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs are expecting one o Ray Nitschke Jersey Mitchell and Ness f the largest crowds since the stadium was renovated in 2010, only emphasizing Kansas City’s usual advantage.

The contest has Vintage 1969 Ray Nitschke Green Bay Packers Mitchell and Ness Away White Jersey Throwback  all the makings of a classic, and if Kansas City can keep rolling on offense while keeping Roethlisberger in check defensively, the Chiefs could once again find themselves in the win column.
