The Bears are coming off three straight losses, though the vibe around this offense specifically is that they are getting better. Justin Fields has made some plays, now that there has been a bit more time to throw. Chicago also found something in Khalil Herbert, who has been a stud at running back. However, unfortunately for Bears fans, this offensive line will face its toughest task since the Browns game, and starting running back David Montgomery is expected to make his return, pushing Herbert off the field more often than not. Defensively, they will play another game without Khalil Mack.
The Steelers have found a bit of momentum, winning three games in a row. Beginning the week in last place of the division, a win tonight would put Pittsburgh a game behind the Ravens for the top spot. The Steelers have found ways to get around having a terrible offensive line, though the question of if Ben Roethlisberger can last a full season is a legitimate one. Defensively, this front seven is still one of the most feared in the NFL. If they don’t get pressure, the secondary can be exposed, though the lack of pressure shouldn’t be an issue tonight.
