Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger to be activated from reserve/COVID-19 list, start vs. Chargers

\I find it funny how Ben's been on his last leg and driving the Steelers to loser oblivion - until he's forced out (like last week)

If there was a bullseye emoji available, I'd use it here.  Thumbsup

Yeah.  Ben is still the best option we have at QB.  If he doesn't start this game we lose.  Simple

I don't have a good feeling about tonight... but I don't have a particularly bad feeling, either. I honestly have no idea what to expect. Both of these teams are schizophrenic. You never know what you're going to get, week to week. 

Ben is back, that's good. But Ben traditionally isn't great his first week back from an injury. But he wasn't injured this time, he was a little bit sick. Both teams have some key injuries. We traditionally struggle on the West coast. But the Chargers have lost more than they've won at home this year. 

Because I'm a homer and Ben is back, I'll pick the Steelers, 23-20.

Nice 3rd down conversion to get things started. Not sure why Claypool felt compelled to jump, but I'll take it.

Lucky that wasn't intercepted. Bad decision to force that in there by Ben.

What's with the quick whistle on the offsides on Bosa? Dammit. Cost us a free play.

That was a DAMN good pass by Ben to convert another 3rd down. Freiermuth, of course.

Johnson with a big catch. Wide open. Ben looking sharp.

My feed just skipped forward and it's 3-0. Hopefully I'm caught up now.

Just caught up. Made it easy on them. Pretty bad. Our offense is gonna have to score TDs tonight to have a shot.

Claypool has to learn to stay on his feet.

Claypool can’t catch a ball without leaving his feet..

After that failed 4th down pass, Ben was glaring either at the sideline or up at Canada.
