The Chargers fell at home on Sunday afternoon to the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 27-20. They will be right back in SoFi Stadium this coming weekend for a date on Sunday Night Football with the Pittsburgh Steelers where they’ve opened as 3.5-point favorites, per DraftKings Sportsbook. As of Sunday night, the over/under is set at 48 points.

The Steelers currently own the 24th-ranked offense in the NFL (331.1 YPG) while still boasting a top-15 unit on defense (13th, 348.9 YPG). They’re still being led by Ben Roethlisberger who has thrown for 1,986 yards and 10 touchdowns this season to just four picks. Rookie running back Najee Harris leads them on the ground with 646 yards and four scores while receiver Diontae Johnson tops their receivers with 613 yards and three touchdowns.
