Hopefully, for the Chicago Bears, Week 3 will be third times a charm. So far, the Bears are 0-for-the-season, and will have a difficult task ahead of them on Sunday when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers at Soldier Field. This matchup is one of three games that will feature a 2-0 team facing a 0-2 team in Week 3. Chicago continues to be decimated with injuries, and are hoping to find a spark with the possible returns of some key players.

On the flipside, Pittsburgh’s running game has been in a slumber, but can wake up at any moment once running back Le’Veon Bell gets in a rhythm after his preseason holdout. The Bears’ front seven will have to stay on their toes. But, in addition to the aforementioned factors, here are five major things to keep an eye on this Sunday.
