Diontae Johnson has a message for those who doubt the Pittsburgh Steelers this postseason.
Ahead of the much-anticipated TikTok Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers, wide receiver Diontae Johnson tells all the Pittsburgh doubters that the bandwagon is about to be full.
With Wild Card Weekend rapidly approaching in the NFL, there is not a bigger underdog than the No.7-seeded Steelers. They only got into the playoffs by the skin of their teeth. The Steelers had to sink the arch rival Baltimore Ravens in overtime and then wait for Sunday Night Football between the Los Angeles Chargers and the Las Vegas Raiders to not end in a super awkward tie.
Johnson said the time to get on the Steelers’ bandwagon is now because there is no room after Wild Card Weekend in this postseason.
Diontae Johnson “once we win don’t be hopping back on that bandwagon.”

Diontae Johnson embraces the underdog mentality heading into playoffs
With this being almost certainly Ben Roethlisberger’s final game of his illustrious career, the Steelers have nothing to lose. This is not a great team by any stretch of the imagination, yet here they are with a chance to hand the two-time AFC defending champions a most brutal home loss in the postseason. Losing to the Steelers will bring back the worst of memories for Chiefs Kingdom.
So do the Steelers have a shot in this game? About as much as the utterly toothless Jacksonville Jaguars had heading into their Week 18 clown show vs. the almost certainly playoff-bound Indianapolis Colts. Fate would have it that Jacksonville handed Indianapolis yet another defeat down in Duval. In the spirt of Lloyd Christmas, I am telling you there is a chance, one in a million.
If the Steelers somehow beat Kansas City, they will travel to Nashville to take on the top-seeded Tennessee Titans in the AFC Divisional Round next weekend.Related Story This video of Ben Roethlisberger watching Raiders beat Chargers is epic

A TikToker named trentsdreamco posted a video — which is now viral — in which a friend of the TikToker — the one who ran on the field — was bet $1,000 that he wouldn’t run onto the field during the game. After pledging that they would pay up if he did it, their friend followed through with his end of the bargain and marched his way onto the field in the fourth quarter. The rest is history.@trentsdreamco

While the CBS broadcast didn’t show the fan on the field, the commentators said he made his way onto the field in between plays while the Buffalo offense was in the midst of a drive.
What’s hilarious about the fan making his way onto the field wasn’t the act itself, but rather how he was taken down before he was detained by police.
As the fan ran past Buffalo’s offense, star receiver Stefon Diggs pummeled him to the ground, which gave the police time to get over to the member of Chiefs Kingdom before he could get up and run away again.

In what will go down as one of the best playoff games in recent memory, the Chiefs beat the Bills on Sunday, January 24 to advance to the AFC Championship Game.
While the teams exchanged blows throughout the game, the barrage of points scored didn’t happen until there were only two minutes left in the game. From that point until the end of regulation, both Kansas City and Buffalo scored a combined 25 points.
It started when the Bills capped off a 17-play, 75-yard drive with a touchdown and a successful two-point conversion to make the score 29-26 in favor of Buffalo. Kansas City responded with a five-play, 75-yard drive which ended with a Patrick Mahomes pass to Tyreek Hill, who put on the burners and scored a 64-yard touchdown. The point after attempt made it 33-29 Chiefs with 1:02 left in the game.

After Buffalo QB Josh Allen threw his fourth touchdown of the day to wide receiver Gabriel Davis with 13 seconds left in the game, the Chiefs took the ball 44 yards in 10 seconds on the following drive to set up a 49-yard field goal for Harrison Butker, which he made to send the game to overtime.
Kansas City won the overtime coin toss and elected to receive the ball. Mahomes and the Chiefs offense then marched 67 yards on seven plays and capped off the drive with a game-winning touchdown from Mahomes to tight end Travis Kelce.

“I want to say our fans were unbelievable, the commitment which they made for these playoffs, and that goes into this win. Then, being there next week I think is tremendous commitment and dedication to the Chiefs, and that’s why it is the Chiefs Kingdom. So, we appreciate every bit of it and the support,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said during his postgame press conference on Sunday, January 23.
“Then, listen, we just all were part of one of the better games in the National Football League, and we were lucky to come out on that end of it. The guys battled their hearts out, both teams. I was proud of our guys for getting in there for four quarters and gutting it out. There were some huge plays made by the offense, defense and special teams.”
