NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:
Why this game is intriguing: Losers of four in a row, heading into the offseason abyss facing an institutional shakeup, the San Diego Chargers are simply hoping for any semblance of positivity. And all they face is a Pittsburgh Steelers team they've never beaten in Heinz Field, with the possibility of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger making his return. Is there any reason to believe San Diego will snap an 0-14 streak in the city of Pittsburgh? Whether it's Roethlisberger or the elderly Charlie Batch, it's not likely.
