Philip Rivers watched Ben Roethlisberger

  •  do what the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback so often does — lead a game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter — and decided it was time for the Los Angeles Chargers to do something they so rarely do: win a big one on the road against a team with Super Bowl aspirations of its own.So the longtime Los Angeles quarterback gathered his teammates around him and delivered a very blunt message.“It was ‘Let’s go win it Hines Ward Jersey ,'” Rivers said. “‘Let’s make this the last drive and win it.'”Done and done. Rivers drove the Chargers 64 yards in 11 plays to set up Michael Badgley‘s 29-yard field goal on the final snap as the Los Angeles rallied for a 33-30 victory on Sunday night.Badgley’s initial 39-yard attempt sailed wide left, but the Steelers were called for offsides. Badgley’s ensuing 34-yard attempt was blocked, but Pittsburgh’s celebration was cut short when the Steelers were again flagged for crossing the line of scrimmage early. The Steelers jumped once more Badgley’s 29-yarder, but the Chargers gleefully declined the penalty as they spilled onto the field.“There was no worry or doubt,” Badgley said. “It’s just one of those things where you stay tough. It’s a situation you never really plan out there where you get three in a row like that. You just have to go do what you know how to do.”Down 23-7 at the half, the Chargers (9-3) became the first visiting team to win in Pittsburgh after trailing by 16. The Steelers (7-4-1) had been 174-0-1 when up by that much at home. Now Pittsburgh heads into the final quarter of the season having its once comfortable lead in the AFC North trimmed to just a half-game over surging Baltimore (7-5).“Don’t need to panic,” Roethlisberger said. “Don’t need to worry.”Might be time to start. The Steelers have dropped two straight for the first time this season and seemingly had no answer for the Chargers in the second half.Rivers completed 26 of 36 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns for Los Angeles. Keenan Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a score and Justin Jackson ran for 63 yards and a touchdown in place of injured starter Melvin Gordon. Desmond King added a 73-yard punt return for a score as the Chargers bolstered their postseason chances by winning in Pittsburgh for just the fourth time in 19 tries.“These guys, they believe,” Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said. “When you believe in something strongly, you can will it to happen.”Roethlisberger threw for 281 yards with two scores and an interception for the Steelers. Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for a season-high 154 yards and a touchdown. James Conner added 60 yards rushing and two touchdowns before leaving in the fourth quarter with a leg injury.STEELERS SOAR … THEN STUMBLERoethlisberger and Brown are among the most productive quarterback/wide receiver tandems in the league but that didn’t stop Roethlisberger from publicly tweaking Brown following a loss to Denver last week, though the star wide receiver stressed he understood it was nothing personal.The minor dust-up certainly didn’t seem to have an impact on their play. Roethlisberger hit Brown for a 9-yard gain on Pittsburgh’s second play from scrimmage and again for 46 yards on the following snap. The two connected on a 28-yard score late in the second quarter that seemed to put Pittsburgh firmly in control on a night the franchise celebrated the 1978 and 2008 Super Bowl champion squads.Suddenly, a team that looked capable of joining them appears to be in a bit of a tight spot with a somewhat daunting final month ahead that includes games against New England and New Orleans.“There’s a quarter left of football,” Brown said. “We’ve got to continue to figure out a way to win and get ourselves to the dance.”GETTING A HEAD STARTDown 13-0 in the first quarter, the Chargers appeared to be in trouble before Rivers hit a streaking Travis Benjamin for a 46-yard touchdown to get Los Angeles on the board on a play that began with Chargers right tackle Sam Tevi standing up and shuffling his feet backward an instant before the ball was snapped.Several Steelers pointed at Tevi as the play began looking for a penalty, but there were no flags on the field when Rivers lofted a rainbow down the right sideline to Benjamin.Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin called it “unfortunate” but declined to criticize the officials.“I am going to keep my mouth shut,” Tomlin said. “I am going to do that because I send enough money to (the NFL in fines).”It marked the second time this season Los Angeles benefited from a non-call on what appeared to be a pre-snap penalty. The Chargers scored a touchdown in Cleveland in October on a play in which left tackle Russell Okung moved before the ball was hiked to Rivers.JUSTIN WHO?Austin Ekeler was given the first crack at filling in for Gordon but managed just one yard on eight carries in the first half. The Chargers turned to Jackson Heath Miller Jersey , a rookie seventh-round pick from Northwestern, in the second half. Jackson’s quickness appeared to catch Pittsburgh’s defensive front off guard, and his 18-yard dart up the middle early in the fourth quarter marked the first touchdown of his career.INJURIESPittsburgh WR Justin Hunter, given a spot on the game-day roster over rookie James Washington, left in the first half and did not return after injuring himself while diving for a Roethlisberger pass in the end zone. … Steelers WR Ryan Switzer was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion after taking a vicious hit by Los Angeles linebacker Jatavis Brown in the fourth quarter.UP NEXTChargers: Host Cincinnati next Sunday.Steelers: Travel to Oakland to play the Raiders next Sunday. Since Penn State Defensive Backs coach Tom Bradley has come onto the staff, the Steelers not only have bolstered the Penn State connection via drafting Marcus Allen and signing Malik Golden, but the DBs have shown some promise, although the talent there is not fantastic whatsoever. The Steelers, thus, might have the local connection here with Amani Oruwariye and it could draw them to him, but he is more than just a connection, this man can straight out play football.MeasurementsHeight: 6’1”Weight: 204 lbsProjected 40: 4.45Data: SportsReference.com, The Draft NetworkFilm RoomOruwariye’s length shows up all over his film in good ways, and never really in bad ways. IT is not just how long his arms, but how long his strides are too. He was a high school safety as well, so it is significant to note how well Oruwariye moves his hips and tracks the ball. This right here is a fantastic example of how sudden a player Oruwariye really is. This guy reacts right on time and just charges down towards the ball. He is absolutely explosive and this is where the safety experience comes in. Not only is he fluid Louis Lipps Jersey , but he comes down and makes a beautiful play on the ball to make this incomplete pass. The length and his large wing span allow him to high point this and just knock it out of there. Fluidity and length like this is a deadly combination. I am a big Amani Oruwariye fan because of plays like this. The ability to be so sudden, keep his hips square, and then use his length to cause an incompletion is paramount to any lengthy corners ability to be a truly good CB at the next level, and with how well Oruwariye tracks the ball, he is going to be a darn good one. Much like DeAndre Baker, Oruwariye has elite awareness and alertness. It may not be on Baker’s level, but he can process routes through the receivers’ hips and read the QBs eyes pretty easily. Combine that with explosive ability and fantastic length and you have to watch out for this dude on any pass. The way he can just get a hand on the ball and play it so aggressively should be a huge plus to any team.First off, I love how he sizes his receiver up off the line and mirrors him once he makes his release. He then uses his length and hands to give himself the leverage so the QB has to make a tough over the shoulder throw instead of a back shoulder throw. Next, I cannot say enough about the awareness and then body control it takes to make this play. Only top CBs make this play, and always having your head on a swivel is still valuable. Fantastic recovery speed here and a great angle towards the ball. Oruwariye is impeccable at tracking the ball and making plays on it, and you can bet he will continue to do that on the NFL level. With the Steelers and so many other NFL teams lacking ball skills in their secondaries, Oruwariye should be at least a hot commodity for that reason.WeaknessesHis biggest weaknesses is easily tackling. I know, that is not what you guys wanted to hear, but he is not a terrible tackler, he is just an inconsistent tackler. Some of it is not even bad form, he just needs to fill his frame out strength wise. I also think he takes rather lukewarm angles at best. They are never great Heath Miller Jersey , but at least he sheds blocks well and holds the edge. If Oruwariye just started to wrap up rather than one-arm tackle at ankles, it certainly would help his game greatly.Fit with the SteelersIn such a weird convoluted scheme such as Mike Tomlin’s scheme, which involves zone, off-man, and press man, Oruwariye will thrive in it. Penn State has a very similar type scheme, and the scheme works around Oruwariye’s strengths in order to give him the ample opportunity he needs to make a play on the ball. If he were to become a Steeler, his scheme fit would not be an issue. High character guy as well, so that is a big plus.Final ThoughtsBetween the local pipeline, the athletic popping traits, and the length Oruwariye has, the Steelers are gonna fall in love with him. They rightfully should. So, if they want their athletic specimen who is also a football player, I would look no further than Amani’s way. He and Joe Haden would be a fantastic 1-2 punch at CB, that is for sure.
