The Steelers will have quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) back under center when they host San Diego. The Steelers have won seven of the past eight meetings with the Chargers - and 14 straight in Pittsburgh - and San Diego coach Norv Turner is 0-6 against Pittsburgh. San Diego hasn’t cracked 300 total yards in its past three games and QB Philip Rivers is having perhaps his worst season as a starter, having thrown 15 interceptions against 18 touchdowns. Pittsburgh has held seven straight opponents under 300 total yards, allowing an average of 234 yards during that stretch. The Steelers are 1-5 ATS in their last six against teams with losing records.
Fresh off a stunning last-second victory over the Detroit Lions, Andrew Luck and the Colts take aim at their third consecutive victory when they host the Titans. The Colts have won six of seven to move one game ahead of Pittsburgh and Cincinnati for the No. 5 playoff seed and are riding a four-game home winning streak. A change in offensive coordinators did nothing to change the fortunes of Tennessee, who were held out of the end zone until the final 94 seconds of last week's 24-10 loss to Houston. The Colts are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games and 5-0 against the number in their last five against teams with a losing record.
Line moves: Opened at pick, now Redskins minus-3.
Books: "This is kind of an overreaction to what people saw on MNF. The Redskins have become the hot team and a team that could potentially win the NFC East. There is some skepticism about Baltimore because of the loss and injury to [Terrell] Suggs. Now, Baltimore is one of worst teams at stopping the run and, lo and behold, Washington is No. 1 in the NFL in rushing. I think the over will go higher than the total of 47.5, too. There was sharp money on that early in the week. Neither are great at stopping what the other team can do."
Rex Ryan thought long and hard about giving Mark Sanchez another start this week after throwing three interceptions in an ugly performance against Arizona last week. Sanchez and the Jets visit Jacksonville with their playoff hopes a long shot and their offense in shambles. Sanchez has turned the ball over 45 times in the past three seasons, second most in the NFL and he ranks last in the league in passer rating. With Maurice Jones-Drew, Jalen Parmele and Rashad Jennings injured, the Jaguars are planning to give former fullback and fourth-string RB Montell Owens the start Sunday. Jacksonville is 1-5 ATS in its last six home games.

Oakland Raiders QB Carson Palmer expressed frustration following the team's sixth consecutive loss in Week 14, saying the team keeps finding different ways to lose games. 'Each week is something different,' Palmer said. 'This team desperately needs a win ... I wouldn't just say that we're on the cusp of it. I wouldn't say it's really close.'
