Monday Night Football Schedule: Steelers at Chargers TV, odds, announcers and more

The Pittsburgh Steelers head to San Diego to take on the Chargers on Monday Night Football. This should be a fascinating game: the 2-2 Chargers have seen Phillip Rivers play some of the best football of his career this year, but a weak running game and weaker defense have let them down twice -- and they only barely managed to beat the Lions and Browns -- not exactly the stoutest teams around.

Meanwhile, the 2-2 Steelers will have to take the field without the injured Ben Roethlisberger. Instead we see the return of Michael Vick. The Steelers have had an impressive offensive performance this year, though, and they'll try to lean on Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams to beat the Chargers. On the other hand, their defense has really struggled to stop the run, though it's been better against the pass.

In all, it should be a really good game. As long as you can stand Jon Gruden's commentary.
