It’s been a rough start to the 2019 season. Week 6 brings another trip west as the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Los Angeles on Sunday night to take on Philip Rivers, Joey Bosa, and the rest of the Los Angeles Chargers. Sitting at 1-4, the Steelers could really use a win going into the bye week.
Although the Steelers are still non-committal about who will be their starting quarterback, they have a host of other injuries coming into Week 6. Players such as Jaylen Samuels, James Washington, Roosevelt Nix, Mark Barron, and Vance McDonald are either out or in question for Sunday’s game. But the Chargers have plenty of their own injuries with 11 players currently on injured reserve.
With the Chargers sitting 2-3 and two games back in the AFC West, both teams need a win in a bad way on Sunday. Can either one of the Steelers’ young quarterbacks get the job done depending on who gets the call? Can the Steelers defense keep generating takeaways and sacks? Or will Philip Rivers find some magic and pull off the win over the Steelers similar to 2018?
This Sunday will answer all of these questions as one of these two teams will take a step in getting back into their respective divisional races. Get all the information you need below so you can enjoy the Week 6 showdown:
