The Los Angeles Chargers will host the Pittsburgh Steelers for their Week 6 game, which will be featured on Sunday Night Football. Here are three bold predictions for the game.

The Chargers will face a familiar foe in their first primetime game of the season. While this game was supposed to be an exciting rematch from last season between two AFC rivals and playoff candidates, both teams head into this matchup with question marks.

Before getting to the bold predictions for Week 6, let’s review last week’s predictions:

  • Tyrod Taylor gets a touchdown: Wrong.
  • The offensive line gets a clean sheet: Right.
  • Philip Rivers throws for over 300 yards: Wrong.

Taylor only played one snap in a game that was much closer than most expected. The Chargers were trailing the whole game, so there was no garbage time for Taylor to get action.

The Chargers’ offensive line, while not perfect, played a solid game in which they did not allow a single sack. The Broncos’ once fearsome pass rush which has tormented Rivers for seasons couldn’t manage to sack him this time.

This is one of the worst Philip Rivers games in a while, as he attempted 48 passes and only managed 211 passing yards. This means Rivers now has only one 300-yard game in his last 18 games against the Broncos.

Without further ado, here are three bold predictions for Sunday Night Football.
