The Steelers may be ripe for the picking if the Chicago Bears have what it takes to pull off the upset
The Bears looked awful on Sunday, there is no doubt about it. It still does not take away from the fact that this team went wire to wire with the Atlanta Falcons just one week before. The Bears could see themselves in a better situation than they think, and in a bounce back spot, they could catch the Steelers sleeping.
Under head coach Mike Tomlin, these spots have always caught the Steelers. Since 2012, the Steelers have gone 13-19 against teams with a record below .500 on the road. In 2016, they lost a road game to the Eagles who had a winning record at the time, but finished below .500 and the Dolphins who had a losing record at the time but finished above .500. In 2015 they were swept by a five win Raven team. 2014 featured a loss to the Rex Ryan and Mike Vick led Jets when they were 1-8. The team finished 4-12.
And of course who can forget in 2014 when the 0-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers upset the 2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers in Heinz Field. Who led the Bucs to victory that game? Mike Glennon.
The situation is set up for the Bears to show that they still have fight in them this season. The Steelers offense has not completely gotten into rhythm yet and if the Bears can punch them in the mouth early it could turn into an upset in the making.
