This week six matchup will the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Los Angeles Chargers. Both teams lost this past and find themselves in a world of trouble regarding their division and playoff hopes.
These teams met last season and the Chargers won 33-30.
The Steelers lost to Baltimore 26-23, dropping them to a record of 1-4. They lost Mason Rudolph in this game after he took a huge hit and forced him to leave the game. A first look at the injury report has him listed as ‘out indefinitely’ . We have to assume that he will be unable to play because of concussion protocol, meaning Devlin Hodges will likely get the start.
Hodges went 7 of 9 after being brought into the game. After a full week with first strings, he may be able to do a decent job, but this feels like a game where the Steelers will lean on the run game.
The problem is James Conner has not exactly looked amazing through five games. He had 15 carries against the Ravens for just 55 yards.
The defense actually played a solid game against the Ravens, forcing Lamar Jackson to throw three interceptions. Rivers has shown some struggles this year and the Steelers secondary is going to need to step up and make some big plays.
Overall, the Steelers have a good enough defense to keep them in the game, and the key will be setting up their offense in good field position with a quarterback with basically no experience.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers lost to the Denver Broncos 20-13 this past Sunday and now have a losing record on the year. They have been involved in several close games this year besides the blow out win over the Dolphins.
The Chargers offense struggled against Denver, totaling 246 yards. They were out-gained by the Broncos by a wide margin, and just were not able to finish off drives. They were 0 of 4 in the red zone, which was basically the difference in the game.
Phillip Rivers was really held in check as he threw for 211 yards and two interceptions. To go along with this, Melvin Gordon had just 31 yards rushing on 12 carries.
Even though they allowed 350 yards, the defense kept the Chargers in this game. they held Joe Flacco to 182 yards passing, but allowed 191 yards on the ground.
With the Steelers playing basically a third string quarterback, the Chargers are likely to have some success. If they can shut down the run, they will have a great chance to come away with a needed win.

I like the Chargers in this game as I do not think that the Steelers will be able to do much when they have the ball.
NFL Free Week 6 Score Prediction: Steelers 14 – Chargers 20
I see this as a very low scoring game, with two struggling offenses. I will take the under in this game as my official play.
