We have an interesting AFC matchup on Sunday Night Football that could have serious playoff implications, with the Los Angeles Chargers taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh will be without many key players, while the Chargers will likely be without much logic in their decision-making, which makes for an interesting NFL betting situation tonight.

The Steelers are hurting on defense. Tonight, they will be without T.J. Watt, Minkah Fitzpatrick and Joe Haden, severely hurting their pass defense as a whole. They do get Ben Roethlisberger back on offense, which is sadly an improvement from Mason Rudolph, who is technically still an NFL quarterback. Pittsburgh will also return Chase Claypool to the lineup, which is a welcomed addition. However, the Steelers should look to exploit the Chargers’ poor run defense early and set up the pass through that.
The Chargers have done Chargers things, losing three of their last four games. However, they do get prime-time Justin Herbert tonight. Wisconsin Badgers fans will never forget (or forgive) what Herbert did to them in the Rose Bowl. He carried this success over to the NFL, where he has thrown nine touchdowns and no interceptions in late games. This coaching staff is trying to make Herbert into late-Drew Brees, which is only good for prime-time games, so they have that going for them tonight. Tonight, it’s not the most newsworthy player, but Lilval Joseph is doubtful, which would make a bad run defense worse. They cannot let the Steelers have success on the ground if they want to win this game.
