Chargers: What are the Chances...?

Brief last-minute analysis: With all their injuries at cornerback the Steelers could be very vulnerable to the Chargers' relatively high-powered passing attack. San Diego figures to do most of its damage through the air anyway, as the team's running game has been sluggish this season. Yet, if Ben Roethlisberger starts (as expected), his performance will likely to determine the outcome. Big Ben will need to avoid the kind of costly interceptions that doomed the team in losses to the Giants and Colts. If he does, the Steelers probably win. If not, another costly AFC loss, and more incentive for Tomlin to start backup Byron Leftwich in the Thursday night home game versus Cincinnati.

Let's be optimistic and give the Steelers a 55 percent chance of winning this game. Prediction-wise, The Steelyard is 6-3 thus far this season, and 32-10 all-time.
