The Chicago Bears fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-27 in a heartbreaker

After being dismantled on Sunday Night Football against the Rams in week one, the Chicago Bears had a chance to redeem themselves in primetime against the Steelers. The team put up a respectable effort, but they ultimately couldn’t overcome the penalties and dropped their fourth game in a row.

The Bears were short-handed for the second straight week

Once again, the Bears were in action without Khalil Mack and Eddie Jackson. Playing on the road against a team over .500 without a perennial all-pro and a starter undoubtedly made the game harder on the defense. The defense did a solid job holding Najee Harris in check and limiting Roethlisberger to 6.8 yards per attempt, but for the second straight week, they weren’t able to get a stop when they needed it, and it resulted in another Bears loss.

The offense produced 

Many fans were curious how the offense would look with Matt Nagy back at the helm, and to the surprise of many, it was quite good. Several good play calls got receivers in space, and the wild cat added some creativity that the offense has been lacking. By no means should this change fans’ overall opinions of Nagy and other members of the coaching staff, but this was a solid game on the offensive side.
