Chargers pull off stunning comeback win over Steelers

The Chargers, however, responded thanks in part to a questionable non-call by the officials.

On the national stage for the first time this season and with a chance to prove they are legitimate playoff contenders, the Los Angeles Chargers seized the moment in a come-from-behind, 33-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

According to our Bet Labs data, Ben Roethlisberger is 14-8 (63.6%) against the spread when playing in prime time the week after a straight-up loss, covering by more than a field goal per game to profit bettors six units. The pass was under thrown by Roethlisberger and James did a heck of a job by reading it, and taking it back for 36 yards.

Running Back James Conner #30 of the Pittsburgh Steelers runs with the ball in the second quarter against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on November 4, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Trailing 23-15 in the fourth quarter, Desmond King returned a punt 73 yards for a touchdown in which there was a pretty obvious block in the back penalty right as he fielded the ball. And after two defensive offsides penalties, Badgley hit a 29-yard field goal for the game victor. After James Conner went out with an injury, his replacement Jaylen Samuels caught a 10-yard touchdown to cap a 12-play, 78-yard drive.

The minor dust-up certainly didn't seem to have an impact on their play. Roethlisberger hit Brown for a 9-yard gain on Pittsburgh's second play from scrimmage and again for 46 yards on the following snap, a strike that set up the first of Conner's two 1-yard touchdown runs in the opening quarter.

After forcing another Pittsburgh punt, the Chargers marched 79 yards on seven plays for the go-ahead score, capped by rookie Justin Jackson's first touchdown on an 18-yard dash up the middle with a little more than eight minutes left to play. The Chargers hit a long touchdown pass on that play.

"We ignore the noise", Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said. However, he quickly got things going after halftime to turn this game into an exciting matchup between two AFC powerhouses. Austin Ekeler will start in Gordon's place. With only four games left Pittsburgh hasn't even secured a winning record yet.
