A big game in the AFC on SNF as the Steelers, unbeaten in five straight, travel to Los Angeles to face the 5-4 Chargers in a game that will likely have playoff implications come the end of the year.
The Chargers lost to the Vikings last week, and their inability to stop the run once again showed up as Dalvin Cook ran on them for 94 yards and a TD on 24 carries. That bodes well for Steelers rookie ball-carrier Najee Harris. The Alabama product has had 22 or more carries in five straight games, six TDs in his last eight games and 81 or more rushing yards in four of his last five outings. The Chargers are going to have an uphill challenge if they’re going to stop the impressive-looking rookie RB.
Spread: Steelers +6.0
Game Prediction: Chargers 24-23 Steelers
Best Bet: Najee Harris to have over 20.5 rushing attempts, 82.5 or more rushing yards and to score a TD @ 10/3 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
