Guess Who's Back?

The Chargers.

Eight weeks after the Steelers prevailed over them in a bizarre contest with an 11-10 final score, the San Diego Chargers return to Blitzburgh -- er, Pittsburgh -- for an AFC divisional playoff matchup on Sunday.

With the Baltimore Ravens having knocked off the AFC's top-seeded Tennessee Titans on the road today, the Steelers would have the home field advantage for their third matchup of the season with the Ravens in the AFC Championship game next Sunday if they can beat the Chargers tomorrow.

But first things first: The Steelers must beat the Chargers tomorrow. The dudes pictured above (the defense, standing behind defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau) will hopefully have a lot to say about that.

UPDATE 1/11/09:
The Steelers took care of business, beating the visiting Chargers 35-24 and setting up what promises to be a fierce, brutal battle against division rivals the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday in the AFC Championship game.
