Pittsburgh @ Los Angeles
Current Records: Pittsburgh 5-3-1; Los Angeles 5-4
What to Know
The Pittsburgh Steelers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Los Angeles Chargers at 8:20 p.m. ET Sunday at SoFi Stadium. Pittsburgh will be hoping to build upon the 24-17 win they picked up against Los Angeles when they previously played in October of 2019.
Last week, the Steelers and the Detroit Lions finished up their contest with a 16-16 tie. No one had a standout game offensively for Pittsburgh, but they got one touchdown from WR James Washington.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Chris Boswell delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Los Angeles came within a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings last week, but they wound up with a 27-20 loss. Nobody on Los Angeles really separated themselves from the pack offensively, but they got scores from RB Austin Ekeler and RB Larry Rountree III.
The Steelers are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
Pittsburgh is now 5-3-1 while the Chargers sit at 5-4. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Pittsburgh comes into the game boasting the second fewest touchdowns allowed in the league at 18. Less enviably, Los Angeles is stumbling into the matchup with the most rushing yards allowed per game in the NFL, having given up 155.1 on average.
