The 7-5 Pittsburgh Steelers take on the 4-8 San Diego Chargers this week. Pittsburgh will welcome back Big Ben Roethlisberger for his first game in several weeks. Pittsburgh can make a charge towards the play offs if Roethlisberger can get some wins in the Steelers last 4 games of the season. The Steelers with Big Ben should be able to get a win tomorrow to start the final 1/4 drive of the season, Roethlisberger’s return couldn’t have come at a better time to help the Steelers make a play off run.
Playing at home in front of their home crowd should help the Steelers pull off a win over the Chargers. San Diego hasn’t been playing very good football this season, coming into Heinz Field and facing Roethlisberger in his first game back as a father isn’t going to be easy for Rivers and his Chargers. Now that Roethlisberger is a father his focus can be on winning his first game back for his new-born son. I think we are going to see a rejuvenated Ben Roethlisberger and a rejuvenated Steelers offense in the last four games of the season.
Pittsburgh is only 2 games behind the Raiders for the AFC North Championship and the way the Ravens have played it wouldn’t surprise me if the Steelers took the top spot away from Baltimore. It is going to take a total team effort from the Steelers, with Ben Roethlisberger’s return I expect the charge to take place against the San Diego Chargers tomorrow. I am predicting a huge Steelers win and I expect the Steelers offense to destroy the San Diego defense in this one.
