Divisional-Round Breakdown: Chargers at Steelers

Breaking down Sunday's San Diego Chargers at Pittsburgh Steelers divisional-round matchup (4:30 p.m., CBS)...

Who Has The Edge At...

Quarterback: Chargers

Philip Rivers has put on an MVP-like performance in leading the Chargers to five straight wins. The league-leader in passing touchdowns and passer rating has connected on 63.6 percent of his throws during the winning streak, with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions. Ben Roethlisberger is coming off his third consecutive season with 3,000 or more passing yards. The fifth-year pro completed 59.9 percent of his passes with 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Roethlisberger led the Steelers to five fourth-quarter come-from-behind victories in 2008.

Running Back: Steelers

Willie Parker led the team in rushing for the third consecutive year, despite missing five games due to an injury. He topped the 100-yard mark in four games, most recently 116 yards on 23 carries in the season finale against the Browns. Mewelde Moore serves as the team's third down back, but rushed for 588 yards while getting more playing time due to Parker's injury. For the Chargers, Darren Sproles gets another chance to carry the load with LaDainian Tomlinson likely sidelined with a groin injury. The diminutive Sproles ran for 100 yards on offense for the second straight game last week, and is averaging over five yards a carry.

Receivers: Steelers

Hines Ward leads a talented Steelers' corps in receptions and receiving yards, but Santonio Holmes serves as the team's top playmaker in the passing game. The third-year pro finished the season with 821 receiving yards and five touchdowns. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh tight end Heath Miller is dangerous in the red zone and unheralded Nate Washington has quietly become Ben Roethlisberger's favorite deep threat. Pro Bowl tight endAntonio Gates anchors the Chargers' passing game, but Vincent Jackson and Chris Chambers are also capable of putting up big numbers on the outside.

Offensive Line: Chargers

Led by Pro Bowl guard Kris Dielman, the Chargers' offensive line is beginning to find its stride. Its ability to control the line of scrimmage will determine if Sproles makes headway against the Steelers' top-ranked defense. The Steelers' offensive line has been pegged as the team's weakest link after allowing 49 sacks on the season. Its struggles in pass protection have led to numerous shots on Roethlisberger. Additionally, the unit has struggled to consistently open holes for Parker and Moore.

Defensive Line: Even

The Steelers' defensive line excels at stuffing the run with Casey Hampton controlling the point.Aaron Smith is also solid against the run, and he gives the team a standout pass rusher on the inside. His 5.5 sacks are the most of any Steelers lineman and rank third highest on the team. Former Pro Bowler Jamal Williams teams with Luis Castillo andIgor Olshansky to anchor a Chargers defense that hasn't allowed a 100-yard rusher in the last five games.

Linebackers: Steelers

James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley have combined for 27.5 sacks while providing relentless pressure off the edges for Pittsburgh. Pro Bowl defender James Farrior gobbles up running backs in the middle of the Steelers' defense. He led the team with 146 tackles, and also recorded 3.5 sacks on the season. The Chargers, on the other hand, are blitzing more under new defensive coordinator Ron Rivera to take advantage of the exceptional pass rushing skills of Shaun Phillips and Jyles Tucker. Though the strategy hasn't resulted in big numbers from either rusher, it has enabled Stephen Cooper to become more of a playmaker.

Defensive Backs: Chargers

Although the Chargers ranked 31st in pass defense during the regular season, Antonio Cromartie and Quentin Jammer are regarded as two of the top corners in the AFC. The tandem has the ability to shut down any receiver combination with their physical play. SafetyEric Weddle leads the San Diego in tackles and shows an uncanny knack for being around the ball. The Steelers counter with Troy Polamalu, who made seven interceptions while patrolling the middle of the field. Ike Taylor, Bryant McFadden, William Gay and DeShea Townsend all make contributions as ball hawks in Pittsburgh's complex zone blitz scheme.

Special Teams: Even

The Chargers rode their outstanding special teams unit to a victory in the wild-card round. Return specialist Sproles helped the Chargers win the field position battle by averaging 24 yards on punt returns. Punter Mike Scifres also contributed by booting all six of his punts inside 20, including five that landed inside the 10. The Steelers' special teams units are exceptional too. Pittsburgh led the league in kickoff coverage (19.1 yards allowed per return) and ranked fourth in punt coverage (only 6.2 yards per return). Placekicker Jeff Reed connected on 27-of-31 field goal attempts during the regular season and is one of the league's top kickers in the clutch. Since 2004, Reed has connected on 87 percent of his kicks in the game's final two minutes.

Coaching: Even

Mike Tomlin has won back-to-back AFC North titles in his first two seasons at the helm in Pittsburgh. Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is a masterful play caller who has a knack for confusing quarterbacks with his innovative zone blitz scheme. Though San Diego coach Norv Turner is often criticized for his regular season record, he has been an outstanding game manager and tactician during the postseason, where's he's now 3-1. His defensive coordinator, Ron Rivera, called an outstanding game against the Colts, and has the defense playing its best ball of the season.

How San Diego Will Win

The Chargers have been in playoff mode the last five weeks and have responded by playing their best football. Rivers has been outstanding directing the passing attack, and the emergence of Sproles has given the offense the big-play dimension in the running game that was lacking most of the season. With the offense displaying more balance and versatility down the stretch, the Chargers have scored more than 30 points in three of the last five games, and are a threat to put up big points on any defense.

How Pittsburgh Will Win

The Steelers' defense has been dominant in every area. It leads the league in total defense (237.2), pass defense (156.9), and scoring defense (13.9). In addition, the Steelers are holding opponents to 80.1 yards on the ground and have recorded 51 sacks. With a defense that suffocates the opposition, the Steelers are built to win the hard-hitting, close games that often emerge in the postseason.
Final Prediction

This playoff matchup will come down to the Chargers' ability to move the ball on the league's best defense. While Rivers and Co. enter the game on an impressive roll, the Steelers' defense will bottle up Sproles in the running game and force the Chargers to rely exclusively on the pass. Against LeBeau's zone blitz, the "pass-happy" approach will lead to a handful of game-changing turnovers that will ultimately decide the game. Look for the Steelers to win a tight one, 21-17.

Patty Cake's MVP performance is about to come to an end tomorrow afternoon. :tt03:

I don't agree with this assessment. I believe our DL is far better than that of the Bolts. I'm glad to see Aaron Smith finally got the noteriety he so deserves!

Defensive Backs: Chargers

Although the Chargers ranked 31st in pass defense during the regular season, Antonio Cromartie and Quentin Jammer are regarded as two of the top corners in the AFC.

What a load of hooey. The Steelers secondary has been outstanding this season and I don't see that changing in tomorrow's matchup.

Look for the Steelers to win a tight one, 21-17.


I do agree that the Steelers are going to win the game, but I think the Steelers O will put up more than 21 points and I do not believe the Chargers will score 17.

if your o-line doesnt hold up then our secondary will take advantage. kinda funny how we went from leading the leauge in ints last year to 31st best pass d this year. the x factor is merriman. he was the one putting mad pressure on qb`s and we took advantage. if we get any sort of pass rush this week we can turn the ball over.

If our OL doesn't hold up, your secondary will be a non-issue. Ben will either be on his back or running for his life.

I think our OL is going to bring their A+ game tomorrow - they know how important this game is.

I think you Bolts fans had better worry more about OUR pass rush and what our D has proven they are capable of. :tt02:

the x factor is Mike Scifres coming off... the greatest game a punter has had in nfl history-jim rome. your defense will also have its hands full with sproles. We don't need Sproles to put up huge numbers. We just need Pittsburgh to respect the threat of him. That will open passing lanes for Rivers.

I'm sure the Steelers respect him but I really don't think he's going to be an issue when all is said and done. As far as Patty Cake goes - he's going to be seeing the whites of Silverback's, Farrior's, Woodley's and Polamalu's eyes very, very often - bank it.

i havent watched the steelers this year other then the one game against the chargers so i can really tell you what it think about your defense. i guess they are the best in the leauge. im sure they will force their 3 and outs but i dont see your offense doing anything special either. you guys better be sure to watch sproles on kick return and punt aswell. as far as rivers goes if he is given time he can pick apart your defense. tbh he wont be given time because our oline is retarded and thus will be sacked more then 3 times. in the end sproles and mike are the x-factors. final score...

Back to the OP, yes, the ESPN article is silly to rate the Chargers secondary ahead of the Steelers'. Polamalu alone gives the Steelers the edge.

I would rate the receivers even. Although Hines is the bigger name, Vincent Jackson is an emerging star in this league. And Chambers versus Holmes? I think you gotta give the edge to Chambers.

i still think ward > jackson (except in the redzone) but giveit 1 or 2 more years and he is a pro bowler. chambers is just straight up better then holmes. better hands and has more experience.

I'm sure the Steelers respect him but I really don't think he's going to be an issue when all is said and done. As far as Patty Cake goes - he's going to be seeing the whites of Silverback's, Farrior's, Woodley's and Polamalu's eyes very, very often - bank it.

Where did he say the D-line backers are bad....they are amazing, our whole defense is. A large part of the reason for that is they click completely as a unit. Nearly every one of these guys have been playing under Dick Lebeau's defensive schemes since 2004, and have done nothing but improve on a yearly basis....and while a few have moved on, most were still around when the Steelers made their SB run.

Tomlin is a major factor in our DB's becoming more effective over the past two years, they were not bad before, but he polished them up. He used to be a DB coach for Tampa the year that the Buccs went on to win the SB and was a DC at Minnesota before coming to Pitt.

Ben's can-do-it-all country boy mentality could very well be the Steelers downfall. If he decides to force things, Rivera's D will have more takeaways. Norv Turner had a significant challenge this week on offense. I'm not sure if Sproles can duplicate last weekends performance against a larger/more physical Pittsburgh D rather than the gimmicky smaller D of the Colts. That should be an interesting match-up, though I will make a prediction that by halftime at least half a dozen threads will be posted on Chargers.com calling for a larger RB in next years draft or via FA in case LT gets injured again. Heinz field is not the Q in SD, it favors size over speed in poor weather conditions.

Don't be surprised when the Bolts cover the spread, and yes they do have a chance to pull the upset...particularly if you look back to the Steelers game against the Titans. The Bears actually played Tennessee better than Pitt.

the x factor is Mike Scifres coming off... the greatest game a punter has had in nfl history-jim rome. your defense will also have its hands full with sproles. We don't need Sproles to put up huge numbers. We just need Pittsburgh to respect the threat of him. That will open passing lanes for Rivers.

we need a larger running back next year. sproles is great but he will wear out returning kicks, punts, and being a 25 carry a game guy. hopefully hester can step up in that regard. i think sproles will get his yards but not have nearly as good of a game as last week. hes too explosive not to be productive. im hearing the weather will be 20 with snow so as long as it doesnt rain its all good.

Please explain to me the relevance of the Bears playing Tennessee better than we did, in regards to tomorrows game. Is that more relevant than Ben throwing for 300, and Willie running for 100+ the last time we played. You guys don't have much in common with Tennessee. Collins played us better than Rivers did. None of it makes any sense. Bottom line is you guys travel 2500 miles, play on a cold slow field against a hostile playoff crowd. You have the ability to upset us, thats why we play the game.

What you are going to see is a wide open playbook(I would send in LT for a play early and have him pass)from the Bolts and a defense that *knows* they will have to create at least a +2 TO ratio if not score to win the game. I'm looking forward to some smash mouth football from Rivera's D, Chicago style.

Well this game is not going to come down to which team punts better. It comes down to not turning the ball over. As far as Wickersham goes he hates the steelers and, he has pick against us almost every week. He is a hater much like much of the jerks at espn.

Like it has been posted here it is Rivers who needs to worry about the pass rush of the steelers because it will be Rivers who will be running for his life. Ben has been running for his life almost all seson so thats not big news here. Now if FWP has a big day look out the steelers will win big and, if we can't run the ball it will be a close game. Still the steelers will prevail either way.

The steelers were burned once this season. and even that was a lucky play

So your defense improved the last 4 games( against the chiefs, raiders, bucs and broncos :rofl:), but what about the first 12 games. I guess they don't count :noidea:

INSIDE THE NFL
Divisional-Round Breakdown: Chargers at Steelers

.

Defensive Backs: Chargers

Although the Chargers ranked 31st in pass defense during the regular season, Antonio Cromartie and Quentin Jammer are regarded as two of the top corners in the AFC. The tandem has the ability to shut down any receiver combination with their physical play. SafetyEric Weddle leads the San Diego in tackles and shows an uncanny knack for being around the ball. The Steelers counter with Troy Polamalu, who made seven interceptions while patrolling the middle of the field. Ike Taylor, Bryant McFadden, William Gay and DeShea Townsend all make contributions as ball hawks in Pittsburgh's complex zone blitz scheme.



Find this article at:
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/bucky_brooks/01/08/chargersteeler/index.html

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!! The Steelers are number 1 against the pass and they are 31st!!!! How is that even!!? Not even close! Our secondary as individuals are so underrated.It really sucks they don't get more glory.If Ike Taylor didn't have hands of stone he'd be considered one of top 3 corners in the league.The only guy in that secondary that would even make our squad is Cromartie and even then considering run stuffing and takling too,he'd be 4th or 5th on chart at best!!! :banging:

duke i dont think you understand how bad ted was. your also forgetting that we just beat the colts and the mvp. they have a pretty good offense imo.

The Colts weren't as good offensively as everybody would like to think that they were. They were a one dimensional team that relied soley on their passing game, which ranked 5th in the league. Their run offense however was 31st in the league....meaning non-existent. Their pass defense was good, and it showed when they played the Chargers as Rivers' production was very low that game, but their run defense was at the bottom of the pile and that is where the Chargers took full advantage of them, and rightfully so. IMO the Chargers did a good job picking apart the Colts weaknesses, which were many.

The Steelers weakness obviously is their offense, but keep in mind the numbers for our offense can be very deceiving as they have been faced with playing against defenses that were ranked in the top 10 8 times this year( and won 5 of those matchups), that's half the season. Take into account that the injuries at QB, RB and OL have played a major role in this as well. Our #1 D has done it's job at keeping even the best offenses to a low score, allowing the offense to just do as much as necessary to win the game, and occasionally break out big games against good defenses such as the Pats. Don't be fooled by what the media tells you, the Steelers offense may look lackluster against top ranked defenses, but they have consistently proven they have the ability to come back when it counts most in close games.

Absolutely!! As a Charger fan, just wanted to say goodluck to a great game tommorrow!!
I know we're underdogs, but we're not a bad team by any means & I hope for an entertaining, injury-free game.
I dig the Steelers, good team full of winners.
For Charger fans & Steelers fans alike, let's all thank the football god's the Titans are out....they're a nasty, dirty team. I knew they were all smoke & mirrors!!

Go Bolts!!

Well, I hope tomorrow is a good game (which by that I mean the Steelers have a 30 point lead by the 2nd quarter and maintain it the entire game :wink02:) and that there are no serious injuries, only the typical game day bumps and bruises!! :drink:
