San Diego Chargers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Preview and Predictions

Aaron NaglerNFL National Lead WriterDecember 3, 2012

As the San Diego Chargers continue their march toward the offseason with Norv Turner and AJ Smith eyeing the unemployment line, the Pittsburgh Steelers are busy keeping their playoff hopes alive even while dealing with a bevy of injuries. 

Charlie Batch's game may not be pretty, but he was effective against the Ravens. Look for that to continue against the Chargers, if he is indeed called upon. Big Ben could finally be cleared to play this week, but the Steelers shouldn't stray too far from the game plan they've used while Batch has been under center. 

In the video above, we look at the biggest matchups and storylines surrounding this game and give our predictions for the game. Let us know in the comments below what you'll be watching and who you think wins the game.
