Chargers’ O-line root of loss to Steelers - Neil Hornsby
When the season started, the Chargers had King Dunlap here. That’s a good enough option when he’s on the field (80.6 season grade), but he’s still in the concussion protocol. For the second straight week, Chris Hairston had to play, and he’s been a penalty machine to date (five), as well as a below-average run and pass blocker. Things changed again when he was forced to leave after 17 snaps, forcing the one good player available, Joe Barksdale, to come across from right tackle.

PIT-SD: Le’Veon Bell delivers game-winner as time expires - Ben Stockwell
While Verrett held Antonio Brown (+1.1) largely in check, the same could not be said for Brandon Flowers (-2.5) on the other side, who was lit up for 138 yards by a trio of Steelers receivers. That represents Flowers’ highest yardage total allowed in a single game since Week 2 of the 2013 season against Dallas, when he played for the Chiefs.
