The Chargers held a 3 point lead with just 5 seconds to go, but failed to keep Le’Veon Bell out of the end zone as they fell literally at the buzzer to Pittsburgh.
They’ll have to deal with Aaron Rodgers now as they travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers.
Rodgers and the Packers had no problem last week in what you can call a relaxing 24-10 win over the Rams.
Monday Night Football, the national spotlight on them, and a chance to get over .500 was the scenario for San Diego.
San Diego needed just one stop, or to at least hold Pittsburgh to a field goal to force overtime. A pass interference call in the end zone placed the ball on the 1 yard line and gave Pittsburgh a chance with 5 seconds left.
With 1 timeout remaining, the Steelers took a chance and lined up Le’Veon Bell out of the Wildcat. He found the end zone as time expired to push Pittsburgh past the Chargers.
QB Philip Rivers threw what was a crucial pick 6 in the 3rd quarter, but finished 35 of 48 for 365 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Rivers was happy to have his main target in TE Antonio Gates back.
Gates caught a 12 yard touchdown on the very first drive and followed that up with an 11 yard touchdown in the 4th quarter. He finished with 9 receptions for 92 yards.
Green Bay Packers
QB Aaron Rodgers wasn’t even on his A game Sunday, but the Packers had a rather relaxing 24-10 win over St. Louis. Rodgers threw for just 241 yards, which is ironically bad for him, but also tossed 2 touchdowns.
He also threw 2 interceptions, which put an end to his NFL record 587 pass attempts without an interception at home. During those 587 pass attempts, Rodgers threw for 49 touchdown passes.
Rodgers has also made his entire receiving core so much better. WRs James Jones and Ty Montgomery caught touchdown passes from 65 yards and 31 yards, respectively.
Expect the Packers to use RB Eddy Lacy much more this week. The Chargers are allowing 132.4 rush yards per game, which ranks 29th overall in the league.
Like their record, the Packers are a perfect 5-0 this season ATS.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Green Bay ATS
Aaron Rodgers and Eddy Lacy should have a field day against this defense.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Green Bay 34- San Diego 17
With how bad the Chargers rush defense is, expect Lacy to have a big day, which will open up the pass game deep.
