vs
PIT

Chargers

2-3

Steelers

1-4

What appeared to be a promising Sunday night primetime matchup at the beginning of the season has become anything but.The Steelers gave it everything they had against rival Baltimore at home last week, losing in overtime despite losing quarterback Mason Rudolph to a concussion. Rudolph remains in the concussion protocol, so Pittsburgh may have to again turn to undrafted rookie Devlin Hodges at the QB spot. The Chargers have veteran Philip Rivers, but it’s been a regression from last year’s 12-4 team for L.A. The Bolts lost to winless Denver at home last week, and they are not only behind Kansas City in the AFC West, but Oakland as well. Pittsburgh also hasn’t won a road game against a western division team (AFC or NFC) since 2015, when they beat the Chargers in their former home of San Diego. The Chargers also won a tight matchup last year, 33-30, in Pittsburgh. While the Chargers should win this game, it’s hard to see them winning by more than a touchdown. Besides a drubbing of Miami, all of L.A.’s games have been decided by seven points or less this season.
