According to Roethlisberger, it is a miracle that the Steelers have made it to the playoffs. They are the underdogs. This game could possibly be the quarterback’s last. According to his post-game interview on Wednesday, Roethlisberger is not too worried about the results. 

He has accepted the fact that The Steelers have somehow managed to get into the playoffs. The QB is not ashamed to admit that his team might be the worst to qualify. 

During the press conference, Ben said “We’re probably 20-point underdogs, and we’re going to the No. 1 team.” Even though the Chiefs are technically not the best team in the playoffs, they are one of the favorites to win it all.  “I know they’re not the No. 1 seed, but they’re the No. 1 team that’s won the AFC the last two years, arguably the best team in football. We don’t have a chance, so let’s just go in and have fun.” The goal of the Steelers veteran is to go out on the field and have fun with his team.
