This week's match-up pits the Chicago Bears against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kickoff at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh is scheduled for 8:30pm ET (09/22).
This is the biggest game of the early season for the Steelers, who are 0-2 after losses to the Titans and Bengals. Their offense has sputtered to just 19 total points over the first two weeks, and Ben Roethlisberger boasts a passer rating under 75, a plateau he's never finished a season short of.
The Bears are another story entirely, jumping out to a 2-0 start under rookie coach Marc Trestman. Though the two victories have come by a total of just four points, Chicago's offense has been electric. Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall have totaled 470 total yards thus far, and Jay Cutler has completed nearly 70 percent of his passes.
Bordering on must-win territory for the Steelers, this game is bound to be interesting. Featuring two of the most historically physical teams in the NFL, the contest should come down to whether the Steelers' aging defense can slow down the Bears' emerging offense.
