Players to Watch…

♦ The Steelers once again have a new kicker. Steelers kicker Chris Boswell will make his NFL debut on the Monday night prime-time stage. Boswell is the fourth kicker to see action for the Steelers since the preseason and the Steelers are hoping he will bring consistency to their kicking game. This should be interesting.

♦ Quarterback Mike Vick has another week of practice with the first team under his belt. The Steelers will need him to show a better command of the offense and hopefully the extra time will pay off.

♦ Running backs Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams should be a big part of the Steelers offensive game plan, The Chargers rank 29th in run defense and have given up an average of 126.8 rushing yards a game.

♦ The Steelers defensive front needs to dominate. The Chargers offensive line is battered with injuries and should be a weak spot. The Steelers defense will have to make big plays and this is an area where they should have a big advantage.
