The LA Chargers host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football in Week 11. The Chargers need this win in primetime as they have lost three of their last four. If the Bolts are going to make a run at the playoffs then they need to win games like these.
Chargers vs Steelers injury report:
Linval Joseph, Mark Webb and Alohi Gilman have both been listed as doubtful while Justin Jackson and Trey Marshall have been listed as questionable for the LA Chargers. Neither Jerry Tillery or Christian Covington will play as they are on the covid-19 list.

Meanwhile, Ben Roethlisberger is projected to play for the Steelers as he has been activated off of the covid-19 list. However, the team will be without Minkah Fitzpatrick, who is on the covid-19 list, as well as T.J. Watt, Joe Haden, Kevin Dotson and Isaiahh Loudermilk.
Sunday Night Football odds, spread, over/under and prediction Week 11:
According to WynnBET, the LA Chargers are six-point favorites against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. The Steelers are +210 moneyline underdogs while the Chargers are -250 moneyline favorites. The over/under for the game has been placed at 47.5 points.
While this game is in LA this is going to look like a home game for the Steelers. While the fan takeover narrative has been overblown this season, the Steelers have the best traveling fanbase in the sport and this will be 70% Steelers fans.
That being said, I am going with Steelers +6. I certainly do not think the Chargers are going to lose this game but the Steelers are a well-coached team that will exploit the Chargers' run defense and keep the game close.
Even though Ben Roethlisberger is the worst quarterback the team has faced this year, I also really like the over in this game.
Final score prediction: LA Chargers 30, Pittsburgh Steelers 26
