Default ***OFFICIAL Steelers v. Chargers PREDICTION Thread***

I didn't see one of these posted already, so here we go...

STEELERS 32
Chargers 16

I feel a rare offensive explosion coming on (any time we score 30 it's an explosion)

Ben - 20 / 28 - 275 yards and 3 TDs

Rivers - 13 / 30 - 145 yards 0 TDs 2 INTs

MVP: Brown - 9 catches / 98 yards and 1 TD

I very much doubt Ben tosses an interception - three games off or not.

I foresee a surge from SD, but ultimately, their O-line is in shambles, and Philip Rivers was already a turnover machine. I've stated it several times: James Harrison will have 5 splash plays: either sacks or creating INTs (via pressure).

I see 3 sacks (1 w/ a strip) and 2 INTs. The Steelers capitalize on all three, for 17 easy points... plus two other scores (10 points).

Total: 27

SD has only scored 8 offensive TDs in their past 7 games... and even though they do really well in December, and even though they will be playing hard for their lame-duck coach, I really do not see much offense occurring (see the aforementioned comments about the O-line & about Rivers).

Total: 13 points

SD: 13
PITT: 27

Steelers in a closer than I would like contest. Ben struggles first game back and Rivers plays one of his best but not enough. Good guys 24-17/ Not hating . just when was the last time we blowed anybody out..

17-16, another down to the finish Squeezum boot.
Believe Ben will be targeted major and makes several errors.
Rushing game will have a pathetic performance but the ST will outdo themselves.

I made this comment in another thread so I will make it "officially" here, lol....
Rivers is a fellow draft mate of Bens from the 04 draft. I expect Ben to be on his game and the rest of the team play hard for him.
Another thought is this game amounts to a 10 am start for the dolts.

31-13 steelers
