Los Angeles Chargers         

The Chargers rush into this weekend’s AFC contest sporting a brilliant 8-3 record that pegs them as the 2nd best team in the AFC West. With the 9-2 Kansas City Chiefs currently leading the division, it’s clear LA still has a shot at winning the AFC West. However, even if that venture doesn’t pan out, Los Angeles will still be in the running for a Wild Card slot. As for this weekend’s matchup, the online football betting odds are predicting a contentious contest that will surely go down to the final minutes. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear these two matchup rather well. Right now the Chargers are scoring 27.9 per game which isn’t too far from the 28.7 figure that the Steelers deliver. Defensively LA takes the edge as they’re only giving up 19.9 to the Steelers’ 22.6.

Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (3,119 passing yards, 26 TD, 6 INT), Melvin Gordon (802 rushing yards, 9 TD, 0 F0), and Keenan Allen (848 receiving yards, 4 TD, 1 F).

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers enter this weekend’s action sporting a 7-3-1 record that ranks them No. 1 overall in the AFC North. Considering their biggest threat is the 6-5 Baltimore Ravens, it’s safe to say that Pittsburgh has built up a little lead atop the division. However, the club recently got their 6-game winning streak snapped by the Denver Broncos. With that in mind, it’s clear that Pittsburgh needs to get right back on the horse this weekend. Unfortunately their going up against a rather talented team in the Chargers. And although Los Angeles also recently lost to the Broncos, there’s no telling how this one will pan out.

Players to Watch: Ben Roethlisberger  (3,664 passing yards, 24 TD, 12 INT), James Conner (849 rushing yards, 10 TD, 3 F), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (1,055 receiving yards, 4 TD, 77 REC).
