The Pittsburgh Steelers will start Michael Vick at quarterback as Ben Roethlisberger is sidelined at least another month with a knee injury. Vick has bounced around the league the past several seasons with stops with the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets. He has had issues with those teams with accuracy and ball security. He has simply been a liability on the field with his poor handling of the football. His first start for Pittsburgh was a Thursday night affair where the Steelers lost 23-20 at home to the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers ran the ball very effectively rushing for 167 yards. Michael Vick threw for just 124 yards with Antonio Brown having his worst game of the year with five catches for 42 yards. The team leaned on Le’Veon Bell who ran for a touchdown and 129 yards on his 22 carries.

The San Diego Chargers have been banged up at the offensive line position. The team continues to lean heavily on the throwing arm of veteran quarterback Phillip Rivers. San Diego is undefeated at home with Rivers passing for 404 yards in week one against Cleveland and in last week’s win the veteran quarterback passed for 358 yards. In the Chargers two home victories they have had success moving the football and scoring points. They had 33 points in a home win to Detroit in week one and last week put up 30 on the Browns.
