Two teams looking to get back into postseason contention will clash on Sunday night, when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Los Angeles Chargers. The Steelers have lost QB Ben Roethlisberger for the season and have dropped four of their first five games. On Sunday, Pittsburgh QB Mason Rudolph was lost to a concussion during a 26-23 home loss in overtime versus Baltimore.
Pittsburgh WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught seven passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. James Conner added 55 yards on the ground and a touchdown for the Steelers, who turned the ball over twice in defeat.
The Los Angeles Chargers have an extremely talented roster, but have dropped three of their first five games. On Sunday, Los Angeles failed to score a point during the first half of a 20-13 home loss versus Denver. The Chargers trailed by 17 points at the break and turned the ball over three times in the disappointing defeat.
Veteran QB Phillip Rivers threw the ball 48 times and managed to finish with a measly 211 yards. Austin Ekeler caught a career best 15 passes for 86 yards in a losing effort for the Chargers.
