Pittsburgh Steelers vs San Diego Chargers takes place on Sunday in the NFL with the Steelers looking to take control of second spot in the AFC North, and make a charge for the divisional title against the Baltimore Ravens. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).

The Steelers are tied for second in the AFC North, and along with the Cincinnati Bengals have a record of 7-5. The Baltimore Ravens lead the hotly contested division with a record of 9-3.

Pittsburgh clash today with AFC rivals, the Chargers, who although are second in the weak AFC West division, have a poor record of 4-8. The Chargers come into this game on the back of four straight defeats and are watching their season disappear in front of their eyes.

With this season already gone, the Chargers will probably now be looking more towards the 2013 season and be hoping to build some positives to take into the off season.

What's even more depressing for the Chargers' fans coming into this game, is that they face a team they have never beaten at Heinz Field. That is a record of 0-14 in Pittsburgh – and it is highly unlikely they will manage to break that duck today.

The Steelers are hot favorites for this game, and especially since quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is set to make his comeback in this game, things just keep getting worse for the Chargers. Roethlisberger has thrown for 2,287 yards so far this season for 17 touchdowns. He will be looking to connect with Mike Wallace and Heath Miller, who have 13 touchdowns so far this season between them.
