As the NFL playoffs begin, Steelers' Roethlisberger has gone full against the Chiefs

The quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers has done not like his team's chances against the high-powered Kansas City Chiefs this weekend as the road for the next month's Super Bowl kicks off.

The Wild Card weekend in the NFL, which marks the start of the 14-team playoffs, features two games on Saturday, three on Sunday, and one on Monday. The Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers each have a bye.

The Chiefs, who have been named the most top-ranked footballer in the nation in the last two years, are expected to have their first match this season.

If this is the last NFL season for the 39-year-old, he is a tough-as-nails competitor who has come up great in countless crucial moments during his career.

"We don't have a chance," said two-time Super Bowl champion Roethlisberger. "We're just going in and playing and having fun," he said.

In a matchup with quarterbacks Derek Carr and Joe Burrow in his eighth NFL season, the Las Vegas Raiders begin the playoffs.

In a fight of division rivals that divided their two regular-season meetings, the New England Patriots will follow the Patriots and rookie Mac Jones as quarterback.

New England enter the post-season after losing three of their last four games, while Buffalo, who won the AFC Championship last year, has won four consecutive games, but have been less than impressive in the last two weeks.

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are among the contenders for the Super Bowl.

The Buccaneers have set a team record with 13 wins this season, including one against Philadelphia last October, but the team isn't taking anything for granted against a confident Eagles squad that boasts a powerful rush.

"As soon as everybody walked into the building today 2021 is over," Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said on Wednesday as the team prepares to practice.

"This is a whole new season, and nothing matters except winning this week, and everybody is in tune to that," he said.

On Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers will return to the Dallas Cowboys, before of the Pittsburgh-Kansas City match.

The Los Angeles Rams have won five of their last six games, while the Arizona Cardinals have lost four of their last five games.
