Chargers WR Danario Alexander continued his tear Sunday, making seven receptions for 88 yards and two touchdowns. He has led the team in receiving each of the past six games, and yet, not much has changed.
“He’s still seeing a lot of single coverage, a lot of matchups where he’s not getting the best (defensive back),” HC Norv Turner said this week. “He’s getting the third DB, and he’s taking advantage of it, and I think we’re taking advantage of it, and Philip (Rivers) is.
“Usually, what happens is it swings a little bit. When you keep playing the way he’s playing, pretty soon he starts seeing some double coverage, and then [Malcom Floyd] is getting singled or [Antonio Gates] is getting a little more singled or you’re getting the backs out of the backfield. That’s usually how it goes through a period of time when one guy is having great production.”

Ben Roethlisberger to start vs. Chargers
Thursday, December 6, 2012, 3:47pm
Roethlisberger practiced for the second straight day on Thursday, and Coach Mike Tomlin was comfortable enough with what he saw to say Roethlisberger will start this week.
“He has been above the line in all areas,” said Tomlin following Thursday’s practice. “Really, the only question we can’t answer is taking a hit. Obviously that will be answered in the stadium on Sunday.
“I am extremely comfortable with his ability to work the field both vertically and horizontally. He has great velocity on his ball. We’re ready to go.”
We'd like to see Roethlisberger take a few hits before recommending him as a start, but his presence should upgrade the entire Pittsburgh offense.

The Steelers are hoping to be full strength this week against the Chargers, including Ben Reothlisberger at QB. If Wallace can't go, Emmanuel Sanders would get the start next to Antonio Brown. All receivers would lose a bit of value if Charlie Batch had to play again this week at QB.
