There are a number of questions that fans have going into the game. Will the San Diego Chargers be able to answer all those questions. Here are 6 questions that will determine the outcome of the game:

1. Will the Chargers be able to protect Philip Rivers?

We all are dying to know if the Chargers will be able to protect Philip Rivers.  If Philip has the time to throw the ball, he should tear a new hole into the Steelers defense. The Steelers defense can’t stop the passing game and their only hope is to sack Philip. Can they make that happen?

It will be up to the banged up offensive line to protect Philip. They did a great job protecting him last week and he was then named the player of the week for his performance. Can they do it again? Can they give Philip the time to hit Keenan Allen on those crossing routes?
