Pittsburgh will likely have Devin Hodges start at quarterback. Hodges is the third string quarterback and has thrown for just 68 yards this season. The Chargers will be looking to put a poor performance at home against Denver behind them and their defense will look to pressure Hodges into making mistakes and turnovers. Lay the points and take the home chalk. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Chargers win and cover ATS 31-7
