The Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Chargers will chase each other around on Sunday Night Football in Week 11

The Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3-1) travel to the City of Angels to take on the Los Angeles Chargers (5-4) on Sunday Night Football. Kickoff from SoFi Stadium is scheduled for 8:20pm ET on NBC. Perfect weather is expected since this one will be played indoors.

The Steelers are coming into this one after a 16-16 tie with the Detroit Lions in Week 10. Technically they haven’t been beaten since October 3rd but tying the worst team in the NFL takes a little shine off of that narrative. As for the Chargers, they’ve now lost three of their last four games after losing 27-20 to the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday.

The Chargers are 5-point favorites at most shops which is down from earlier in the week when Ben Roethlisberger’s status was unknown. The total is hovering at 47.5 but that could go up as we get closer to kickoff.  As always, there are plenty of player props to consider which is what we’ll do here.

Najee Harris Goes Off Sunday Night

One of my favorite rookies in the NFL right now is Najee Harris. He’s a prototypical running back for today’s NFL and he is throttling the league at this point. There were many doubters at the beginning of the season because of Pittsburgh’s offensive line but Harris has silenced those people.

This guy could literally run through a wall if asked nicely.

One thing about Harris is he’s used in the passing game quite a bit so he’s constantly got his hands on the ball. On the season he’s caught 44 balls for 317 yards so he’s making the most of his time with the ball. He’s obviously earned the trust of Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ coaching staff at this point.

The reason his receiving chops come into play is because his hands make him game script-proof against some defenses. If the Steelers are getting rolled, he’ll still post receiving yards and if they’re winning he’ll get rushing yards. He’s playable against certain defenses in the rushing + receiving yards markets and one of them is the Chargers.

No team in the NFL has given up more rushing yards to the running back position than the Los Angeles Chargers. They are dead last in opponent yards per carry and their defensive line has been hit hard by Covid. This is a great opportunity to take Harris in a combo market because he is highly likely to have a huge night rushing. There’s also a safety net of him catching balls and getting home like that if the game script goes south.

Who Scores?

This is a primetime game so touchdown scorer props are a must. We simply can’t be expected to watch a stand-alone, prime-time game and not have action on a touchdown scorer. We’re not a bunch of communists here.

On top of that, we have the perfect guy to back for this one.

Even with Eric Ebron back in the lineup, Pat Freiermuth played 62% of the snaps and saw a season-high 9 targets last week.

Pat Freiermuth has caught a touchdown in each of these last two games with Roethlisberger so there’s definitely that. He’s playing more and more and he’s clearly getting looks in the red zone. Only one team in the NFL has given up more touchdowns to the tight end position this season than the Chargers so a play on Freiermuth at +225 makes a ton of sense.
