I told you guys last week the Vikings weren’t going to be a pushover and they weren’t.  The Steelers are desperate to get into the win column.  Their defense has been good the first couple of weeks and Heath Miller’s return could bolster a struggling offense.  The Bears’ opportunistic defense sets the up the offense for another 4th quarter comeback.

Bears 23 – Steelers 19

Keith Schultz (1-1)

The Steelers need this game badly or it’s all but over for 2013.  Too bad they can’t run the ball at all.  In an ugly game, a Devin Hester return seals the game for the Bears.

Bears 21 – Steelers 10

Cameron Curtis (1-1)

Get ready for another nail-biter, Bears fans. Cutler and company make a valiant effort, but come up short this time.

Steelers 27 – Bears 26

Dick LeBeau is a HOF defensive back and D-coordinator. He knows how to direct great defenses. Mike Tomlin has been a HC in the NFL for seven years with two trips to the SB and 1 Championship. With all that being said; the Steelers are getting old in some key spots and their QB Ben Roethlisberger does not seem to be on the same page as the Steeler’s OC Todd Haley (I think we all know how well that typically works out).

I see the Bears offense taking another step forward and the defense holding its own. The Bears score a late TD on a turnover when Pitt starts to press.

Bears 27  – Steelers 17

GM Mouser (1-1)

The Bears find their pass rush in week three. The Steelers defense will put up a good fight, holding Forte to less than 100 yards from scrimmage but Hester will finally find the end zone on a return. The Bears West Coast Offense is well suited to combat a team with a stout defense but the Bears will struggle to sustain drives. Roethlisberger will turn the ball over against the Bears’ defense providing a short field and points for the offense.
