San Diego (+3.5) at Pittsburgh (12-2-18)

Recommended Posts

8:20 EST .....Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Michele Tafoya on NBC

Mid-50s and a chance of rain at Heinz Field - Pittsburgh  over-under at 52

 

Charger QB Phillip "Old Man' Rivers (239 of 344, 3,119 yards, 26 Tds, 6 INTs) will have to go without injured RB Melvin Gordon (153 carries 802 yards) but he does have four receivers with 400 r ore yards in receptions. The Chargers also have top DEs Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram leading a defense that has allowed just  99 points in their last seven games.

 

Pittsburgh QB 'Big Ben' Rothlisberger (312 of 472, 3,644 yards, 24 TDs, 12 INts) has big time receivers in 'Downtown' Antonio Brown (71 catches, 874 yards) and JuJu Smith Schuster (77 catches, 1077 yards) plus RB James ("I'm not LeVeon. I want to be here") Conner (186 carries 849 yards) .

 

The Steelers have only scored 37 points the last 2 weeks but those were road games and this is not.

Pittsburgh (7-3-1) isn't going to lose their division but they want to finish ahead of New England so they don't have to go there in January. The Chargers (8-3) probably wont catch Kansas City (9-2) but a loss puts them in range of the Ravens (6-5) and Colts (6-5).

 

This game seems closer than it is. Who have the Chargers beaten? The Browns? Buffalo?

Oakland twice.??  Pittsburgh showed some holiday spirit last week donating a 'gift' game to Denver.

They wont be so nice this Sunday.

Take the Steelers and give the gift of the points

Chargers (not soon to be 8-4)...win 33-30

amazing comeback from 23-7......bizarre finish...

 

Refs missed the Charger offside and then called 2 offsides (correctly) on the game winning kick.

 

Colts (6-6) can no longer catch the Chargers (9-3)..must catch Baltimore (7-5)

Time for Rivers to get his Ring. Everyone gives Rivers crap for having 0 Rings but he has had to deal with Brady, Peyton, and Ben. 2006 was his best team but Brady took him out that year and he wasn't beating us either in 2006 with Bob back LOL. Rivers now has a team similar to 2006.

That was 1 of the best comebacks in a long, long, long time! Dare I say 1 of the best ever? Biggest deficit? Hailmary? No none of that stuff but it was a pretty big deficit and most importantly it was between 2 of the best team with more than usual on the line.

Kinda was rooting for the Patriots that day. We would have had to go to SD and they had our number lol.

 

But the Chargers are really good this year.. and they didn't even have Gordon. My only concern with them beating KC and winning the division is... is their 13-3 tiebreaker over the Patriots 13-3.. I'm obsessed I know:facepalm::funny:

Also, did anybody see that lineman block 3 of the 4 guys on the first offsides? Sign him and put him on the Colts OL lol!

    • That changes with the wins and losses.  As always, things are never as good as they seem just as they are not as bad as advertised. 
    • He may turn out to be a decent pro, I really don't know. You are better than me at analyzing college players. I just don't watch enough college games to try and guess who will be a good or great pro. I have seen Burrow and Tua play some but it is because they are always on TV. I have looked up Jordan Love on youtube lately because you guys think he may end up being a good pro. To me the draft is fun, mocks are fun to read too, but the draft is also a crapshoot. Teams have to get lucky and guess a lot, like KC did with Mahomes. Baltimore did with Lamar too. With Luck we just knew he would be good to great. For so many good QB's there has been many that have been busts like Ware, Mirer, Shuler, Leaf, Couch, Harrington, J.Russell, RG3, Mariota, etc.. When those guys came out they were labeled as can't miss pro's. = Will be good at worse. Thank God we took Manning instead of Leaf.
    • Yeah, not a great game for him. He still made some nice throws, but the consistency wasn't there. He had some very questionable accuracy on several important throws that he needed to make.      This was a beautiful throw though. He had several NFL type throws even in this game in which he played far from his best. The lack of consistency is why he won't go day 1 or 2. If he was more consistent we wouldn't be talking about him as an "under the radar"/day 3 QB.      Nah, he needed better accuracy on his throws and needed to get rid off the ball more quickly on several occasions. His OLine didn't help either. 
    • I like him too and think as a starter he can win games, things just aren't going our way right now. Losing that Houston game ruined the season.
    • Best back up in the league, quality guy, I like him.
