Scouting the next Chargers opponent: Steelers - Tom Krasovic
Go to Pittsburgh on football Sundays and everyone’s carrying a yellow towel. Steelers fans are notoriously clumsy, prone to falling in the nearby rivers, so it pays to carry one of these wash cloths.

Chargers third quarter season report - Eddie Brown
WR's Danario Alexander: I've broken down Alexander's potential here. If he's fortunate enough to stay healthy, the Chargers have themselves a new No. 1 wide receiver. Going forward: He's a fantasy starter. He's recorded at least 95 receiving yards in three of the last four games. Despite the tough secondaries on the horizon, I believe he will still receive the opportunities to make plays.

Forced Into Action, Haslam Steps Up - Ryan Schuler
"I felt good to help out, just do my job, go out there and play a helping role in the offense," Haslam said. "(I’m) just glad to have that opportunity. The O-line is the O-line. We have a couple injuries, so I mean we’ll work through it, but every team has injuries this late in the season."

Chargers place two on IR; bolster O-line - Michael Gehlken
Likely down three starters for Sunday's game against the Steelers because of injury, they signed guard-tackle Stephen Schilling and center-guard Colin Baxter. In a corresponding move, the team placed wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (hand) and rookie center Dave Molk (thumb) on season-ending injured reserve.

PFF ‘Had a Bad Day’ Team of Week 13 - Khaled Elsayed
Phillips was nigh on invisible against the Bengals, save for a couple of unblocked pressures, while Mercilus similarly got both of his sacks without beating a man. Unimpressive.

NFL: Week 13 knee-jerk reactions - Staff
Does this team look capable of winning a game right now? Offensively, it is a mess, and the defense folds in the fourth quarter. I don't think the Chargers will go winless the rest of the season, but it is clearly possible.

Pro Bowl Cheat Sheet: The AFC - Khaled Elsayed
It’s really not fair. Ward is an easy choice for the strong safety spot, but how do I choose between Reshad Jones, Eric Weddle and Byrd? In short I go for Byrd because I believe him to be a better player in coverage. But by all means vote for Weddle or Jones. They’ve both been excellent.
