This is a huge game in the AFC. With Pittsburgh losing last week at Denver they need a win to pull even with the Chargers in the win column. At home they are a pretty good bet to get it too.
The Chargers kind of had a bye week last week, taking on a terrible Arizona team. Now they have to travel for a big one, and their might be weather.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers were down 10-0 at the end of the first quarter against the Cardinals. From there all they did was score 45 unanswered points. I am not sure this team is getting enough credit for the season they are having.
The same could definitely be said of QB Philip Rivers. He was 28/29 against Arizona and is having the best season of what is likely a Hall of Fame Career. His 115 QB rating would be a career best and he can be surgical at times.
Helping is a running game that is 7th in the league. Melvin Gordon has taken a lot of heat for being a bust but this season he is busting out. Prior to this season he had never averaged more than 3.9 yards per carry – this season he is getting 5.2.
The L.A. defense has been good all season long even though they have been playing without their best player. Joey Bosa came back a couple of weeks ago and looked great against Arizona with two sacks. This group can be even better.
The Steelers had won six in a row coming into Denver and there were varying schools of thought as to whether it would be a flat spot, after an emotional playoff revenge win over Jacksonville the week before.
Those kinds of things are heard to fully measure but they lost and only scored 17 points, their second lowest total of the season. Now they return home for another big game and they have proven that normally brings out the best in them.
In the loss Big Ben threw the ball an amazing 56 times. He completed 41 for 462 yards but a couple of interceptions hurt the team. Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster was a fantasy monster with 189 yards.
Pittsburgh can take some measure of confidence from the fact that if they hadn’t turned the ball over like they did they probably would have won. They significantly outgained Denver.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Steelers -4
This should be a great game. I like that Pittsburgh is at home and on some levels the loss might have given us a little extra.
NFL Free Week 13 Score Prediction: Pittsburgh 30 – Los Angeles 20
I know that final margin looks like a lot but I am guessing we get there with a late score to salt it away. I don’t love the dead number. This game was made to tease.
