I don’t know why I have not created a predictions post in forever. I guess we will roll one out for Monday Night Football. I was working with the Steelers blog on FanSided and dropped in my prediction with them and realized I don’t do that enough with my own site. I am sorry friends. I SUCK AT LIFE.
Anyway, this game is going to be tough and it might get ugly again. It hasn’t been the prettiest season up to this point, but we have a quarterback that will never call it quits and will keep fighting. He is coming off a week in which he was named player of the week and will be getting his favorite weapon back on the field.
We are winning this game. We luck out since we don’t have to face Ben Roethlisberger. I wish we didn’t have to see LeVeon Bell. He will be the biggest threat to our defense and we will have to do everything possible to slow him down. Mike Vick doesn’t scare me when he throws the ball and he isn’t the same threat that he used to be running the football. Bell could run for 300 yards on us though, especially if we don’t put our tackling pants on.
If the Chargers are going to win this game this week, Philip Rivers needs to play out of his mind all over again. I think he can do it to this Steelers defense. Philip will get his favorite weapon back on the field and it seems that Frank Reich is trusting in this no-huddle hurry-up offense a little more. Stevie Johnson might be out with the bad hammy, but Philip will sling the ball around to Gates, Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead throughout the game. We might not trust in the running game at this point, but we are going to let it fly all day long.
Chargers 35 – Steelers 31
That is a crap ton of points that I put on this game, but if we are going to win, it is going to be behind our offense which scares the crap out of me. When is the last time we scored 30+ points? I must have lost my mind, but winning is winning.
What are your predictions? I hope they are better than mine. Maybe that is why I don’t do these predictions.
