The Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Chargers represent two teams in the middle of the pack in the AFC. They may not be the best in their own respective divisions, but they remain in the playoff race in Week 11.
The Steelers are coming off a tie with the Detroit Lions in what likely felt like a loss to most fans. However, that tie did come in the absence of Ben Roethlisberger as he was on the COVID list. He has since been activated, adding some real excitement to Sunday night’s showdown.
The Chargers are coming off a loss to the Minnesota Vikings, which dropped them to 5-4 on the season. That’s good enough for second place in a jam-packed AFC West division.
Injuries are prevalent on both sides and some key players will be out Sunday. Here’s what the injury reports look like heading into Sunday.

The big question for the Steelers was Roethlisberger’s status. Now that he has returned, it leaves the Steelers without four players for Sunday. T.J. Watt (hip/knee) is the most notable absence, which serves as a boost to the Chargers offense. Haden (foot) is a notable injury as well.
