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!

I am watching the game again right now.  We missed that Sunday night, i will have to look for it.

    • We just invested a high pick in Ya-Sin and money in Desir.  I don't see any point in the near future where Ballard would spend a first round pick for any CB.  Especially one that then has to be signed to a huge contract.
    • Did Deion Jones play much in 2nd half of the SB?   He's very good.
    • Bruce Anderson out with David Williams in. Seems the club is churning out weekly rb's since pre season to find the right fit.   Anderson was 5'11 209 lbs while Williams brings much more size at 6'1 229 lbs.  Drafted by Denver in 2018 ended up in Jville where he got 36 rush yards on 8 carries over 6 games. Good short yardage SEC back with South Carolina for 3 years before transfering and having his best season for Arkansas as a senior ( 5.6 yard per carry and 8 tds).   With Jonthan Williams still not seeing the field wonder if he will be promoted in a week or 2 if coaches like what they see from him.
    • I feel that a heavily run-oriented offense was always the plan for these early season games.  The OL worked out so well last year, we think we can be that kind of line that just enforces its will and is dominating by the 4th quarter.  It also serves the purpose of letting Brissett get his legs under him and build some confidence.  I think that as the weeks go on he’ll throw more (and farther downfield) and we’ll be the kind of offense that can take whatever the defense gives us...
    • I buy into some of that, but that is not all.   There are many players on teams that have done worse but it is overlooked because of their talent.  Apparently there are no coaches or GM's who this Kelly has the talent to overcome a misdemeanor that already had the punishment served.
