The Pittsburgh Steelers return from a two game road trip to take on the Los Angeles Chargers at Heinz Field on Sunday night in a contest that could have significant playoff implications for both clubs. Playoff seedings and hopes of a possible postseason bye will be on the line in Week 13 and the Steelers face a tough challenge against a Chargers team that has only lost once in their last eight games.

While the Chargers will be missing their lead running back in Melvin Gordon, they still possess more than enough weapons on offense to test the Pittsburgh defense. With Phillip Rivers coming off a near perfect game against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12, a contest in which he finished with just one incompletion in 29 attempts, it will not be an easy matchup for the Steelers’ beleaguered secondary.

However, Pittsburgh has been almost unstoppable in primetime as of late, winners of 14 of their last 15 games played at night. Combine that with the fact that the Steelers are 18-2 in their last 20 games played in the month of December and all signs suggest this contest should be well deserving of the national television audience.
