The Steelers (5-3-1) had their chances for their sixth win of the season last week against the Lions, but thanks to a very sloppy fourth quarter and overtime period, they settled for a 16-16 tie. Pittsburgh's backup quarterback Mason Rudolph started the game for Ben Roethlisberger who went into COVID protocol. Big Ben is active tonight after clearing COVID protocol and is expected to start against Los Angeles.
The Chargers (5-4) were the belle of the ball when they started the season 4-1, but have struggled recently dropping three of their last four. Last week, they lost to the Vikings 27-20 in a game that was close throughout, but L.A. just couldn't take control. Justin Herbert completed just 20-of-his-34 passes for 195 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
These two teams are both in need of a win to keep up with their tightly wrapped divisions. The Steelers are in second place in the AFC North trailing the Ravens who have one more win. The Chargers are also in second place in the AFC West, trailing the Chiefs by a game.

Steelers vs Chargers fantasy picks and odds
Steelers: Running back Najee Harris is Pittsburgh's biggest threat. The rookie leads the team with 646 rushing yards and 913 yards from scrimmage. He also has six touchdowns this season and will be facing the worst run defense in the NFL in this one. Wide Receiver Dione Johnson, despite his fumble last week has been a constant target as the team leader in receptions (52) and receiving yards (613).
Chargers: Quarterback Justin Herbert has taken a hit as the team has struggled of the last four weeks. Herbert has throw six of his 19 touchdowns over that span, but has also averaged an interception-per-game. After the obvious receivers like Mike Williams or Keenan Allen a good sleeper this week may be tight end Donald Parham. The 6'8 Stetson product has caught all three of his touchdowns over the last five weeks. He's by no means a volume guy, but has emerged as a solid red zone target for Herbert.
The Chargers are 5.5-point favorites against the Steelers. The over/under is 47.
