THE TEAM NEWS

PITTSBURGH STEELERS

  • Pittsburgh showed some promising signs against Baltimore but were ultimately defeated in OT against their AFC North rivals and despite falling to 1-4, a trip to Los Angeles to face the Chargers could see them collect their second win of the season.
  • The Steelers could be forced to play their third-choice QB after Mason Rudolph was knocked out by a big hit against the Ravens but he appeared in both of the first two practices of the week in a limited capacity which suggests that he could suit up.
  • With a long injury report named once again, the Steelers could have several players sidelined for this game but one man definitely out is RB Jaylen Samuels after he underwent knee surgery that will keep him out of action for around a month.

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS

  • Los Angeles Chargers were hugely disappointing in their loss to AFC West rivals Denver as they failed to score an offensive touchdown and that will be particularly concerning for them as the Broncos had failed to win a game this season before their victory last week.
  • The Chargers were left sweating on the fitness of C Mike Pouncey after he suffered a neck injury in the loss to the Broncos and their worst fears were realised as he had to be placed on IR, with the injury requiring surgery which could even place his career in doubt.
  • Five players were non-participants in the first practice of the week with rookie S Nasir Adderley one of those after he was ruled out of the clash with the Broncos before kick-off whilst DE Melvin Ingram was another who did not take to the practice field.

THE PREDICTION

Los Angeles Chargers will look to bounce back following a poor display against Denver as they host Pittsburgh. The Steelers still just have one win to their name this season after their narrow loss to Baltimore last week but will believe they can come out on top of this one. The Chargers were extremely poor last week and the team will have to show a big reaction to that performance but the Steelers could consign them to a second consecutive loss.
