Chargers: Will weekend be the Pitts?


Let’s see now:

The Pittsburgh Steelers lead the NFL in total defense.

They are first in pass defense, second against the rush, and tops in sacks.

The Chargers can’t run the ball. (Just ask LaDainian Tomlinson, who has made an issue of it all week.)

They can pass; but they can’t protect the quarterback too well.

On top of all that, the Chargers were underwhelming in a one-point escape at home against lowly Kansas City last week.

So how can the Chargers possibly beat Pittsburgh?

Remember, Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger is banged up and has one TD pass along with eight interceptions his last three games.

But therein lies the rub for the Chargers: They have recorded ZERO turnovers in the past 13 quarters.

It all comes down to the Chargers creating some turnovers or suffering their third loss in the past four games.

Predictions:
Steelers 21, Chargers 17
Utah 38, San Diego State 10

Do you realize San Diego State will have 10 losses when it loses this weekend? That will be the first time the Aztecs ever had 10 losses. And to think they are bringing back the wonderful coach!

I just heard on Mike and Mike in the Morning say that an email they got from a manager of a sports book claimed people were almost rioting in the sportsbook. Then they just said that 64 million changed hands on that call in Chargers-Steelers world wide -- in legal betting not to mention illegal betting. Can you imagine...
