The NFL has announced that they have moved the playoff game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs to Sunday night. Here is their official statement:
Due to public safety concerns in light of the forecasted storm this weekend in the Kansas City area, Sunday’s Steelers-Chiefs Divisional Playoff game on NBC has been moved to 8:20 p.m. ET.
Moving the game from the original 1:05 p.m. ET start time will provide local authorities more time to clear roads in the area as the weather is expected to improve throughout Sunday.
The decision to make this time change was made in consultation with state and local officials as well as the Chiefs and the Steelers.
The game will now follow Cowboys vs. Packers in the NFL's lineup of games on Sunday. No other playoff games will be affected by the storm.
Pittsburgh comes into the game after beating the Dolphins in the wild card round, their eighth-straight win overall. The Steelers also won the regular season matchup between the two teams, beating the Chiefs 43-14 in Week 4 of the regular season.
Kansas City is coming off a bye week after claiming the No. 2 seed in the AFC, and have won five of their last six games overall.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
