Well, on paper, we should win this. Our offense is ranked low, but steadily improving. Their offense is worst in the league and regressing. Our defense is also significantly better, although we lack turnovers so far this year.

I think the turnover shortage will change tonight as the defense forces Chicago into at least 3 turnovers. As a Buckeyes fan, I have a warm place in my heart for Justin Fields. But none of that matters tonight. 

Crucify him.  Pi_sharpteeth

I expect to see more straight-ahead blocking success for the O-line tonight as well. Our running attack hasn't been great, but we're on the rise while Chicago's run defense is in the bottom 3rd of the NFL. The O-line gave Cleveland's talented front 4 everything they could handle last week, dominating them in my view. I hope to see more of that tonight.

Even so, my gut tells me this won't be easy. As much as I'm in the mood for a blowout (which could happen), I have a feeling this will be a relatively low-scoring event that we finally put away late.

Steelers 24, Bears 12.
Looking forward to the game. I read the last time we beat the Bears was the game the Bus ran over Urlacher. I do think we take this win at home, in prime time. I think some old greats will be at the game as well.

Steelers - 34

Da Bears - 10
Interesting fact: Ben is 0-3 vs the Bears. The one team he hasn't beat.

That ends TONIGHT
31-13
Watching the pre-game: Hines needs to make the Hall of Fame. Though he has the 1,000 receptions - no one ever (except Rocky Blier) had more heart. Hines BLED Black-n-Gold

I'll agree with that.  Thumbsup
I don't like most "alternate" uniforms, and I especially tend to hate "color rush" unis... but I really like ours.  Thumbsup
3-n- out good start
3 and out. Well done, defense.
Nice little return by McCloud.
Surprised we started with an empty backfield.

I liked the bumblebee
Not feeling the play calling so far.
Nice toss to Claypool REALLY wish that kid could stay on his feet
Wow. Helluva catch by Claypool. Great job trusting your man, Ben.
Nice run by Washington
Tough sledding on the ground so far, but Najee's strength bought him 3 yards.
Touchdown!
feeling 6
NAJEE!!!

LOL. You're always ahead of my feed.  Laugh

It was a nice run. Good to see an end around work for a change.
BOOM!!!! Yes, Najee!!! Man, that looked easy.

Way to go!!!
Nice. Boswell kicked an XP. Like he's a kicker instead of second string QB
