The Pittsburgh Steelers head back home after a loss in Denver to take on the Chargers in a must-watch AFC matchup.
It won’t come easy. If the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to bounce back from a last-second loss to the Broncos, they’ll need to regroup completely. From their play calling to defensive execution and everything in between, this team needs to rewire themselves before taking on LA.
When it comes down to it, beating the Chargers isn’t going to be easy, but it is doable. Pittsburgh remains one of the best teams in football, and even despite a loss, they remain a favorite for the Super Bowl.
People may be suspicious of them if they need to play on the road in the playoffs, but a win over the Chargers this week will help their case to avoid that exact situation. And right now, their only focus remains on this week.
It comes down to four key factors that will give the Steelers the upper hand. If they can execute these four aspects they’ll climb right back up the AFC rankings and rejoin a group many believe they left after last week.
Don’t forget this team won six in a row before losing to Denver. They know how to win and they’ve proven it all season. One step back doesn’t define them, and if they can pull of these four things in Week 13, they’ll come out of Sunday with a significant win late in the season. All they need to do is execute.
